Play MPE is partnering once again with one of the biggest and most esteemed songwriting competitions on the planet – International Songwriting Competition 2022!
An Interview with ISC’s Jim Morgan
With the Sept 21st deadline fast approaching, we took a moment to sit down with Jim Morgan, Marketing Director at ISC, to talk about what’s new for this year’s competition. You can catch that conversation here:
Who will choose the winners?
This year’s judges include Mariah Carey, Coldplay, Tom Waits, Hozier, Gloria Estefan and Tenille Townes – to name just a few of the huge artist names! There’s also a wide swath of the music industry represented on the judging panel, including A&R from major labels and publishing companies.
Last year’s winners received global music promotion distribution packages from Play MPE equalling a whopping $25,800 split amongst the winners. This year, we have signed up for even bigger and better prizes including a prize package worth up to $4000 USD for the grand prize winner! There are also amazing packages for all first place winners in every category – includingPop/Top 40, Rock, R&B, Country, EDM, Blues, Folk and more! With 24 categories, there’s something for every brand of songwriter, to help them reach their specific genre of music promotion.
Upon winning the 2021 Grand Prize, singer/songwriter Notelle exclaimed, “There are very few moments that leave you speechless from joy. This moment for me will be one of them. I would never in my wildest dreams have imagined that a song I wrote alone in my car would have had this much impact on my pursuit of my dream of being a songwriter. ISC has given me the kind of opportunity and encouragement that I have never had before, and I will be forever grateful. What an unbelievable experience.”
