Play MPE is a proud prize partner of the International Songwriting Competition 2023

Team Play MPE

September 5, 2023

Play MPE is partnering up with International Songwriting Competition (ISC) again for 2023! 

International Reach 

ISC is International and as you know, so is Play MPE’s reach! So we are awarding winners with our BRAND NEW International Bundles (music promotion distribution)! More on all of the prizing here. 

For over 20 years, ISC has been offering artists and songwriters the opportunity to be heard by leading industry pros. Emerging indie artists, top songwriters, and musicians from around the globe are invited to submit their music for consideration. ISC awards prizes to an impressive 74 winners across 24 categories! The winners will share in $150,000+ in cash and prizes, including a $25,000 cash prize for the Grand Prize Winner. 

Bigger Prizes from Play MPE 

We’ll provide the Grand Prize Winner with a comprehensive music promotion distribution campaign for an album, EP, or single, plus additional marketing (interview and more). The promotion campaign includes an International Bundle in their specific music genre/format + two bonus lists: Global Music Supervisors list and Global Music Bloggers! We will award ALL First Place Winners in every category again this year. Plus, we are expanding these prizes to International Bundles for 1 single each!

International Bundles get your music heard by key decision-makers in radio, media, curation, A&R, and more. These bundles cover the US, Canada, Australia, and beyond!
