Here Are the Top-4 Songwriting Contests to Enter
Win up to $25,000.00 in Cash Prizes For Your Songs and Lyrics
The rewards of winning song-
and lyric writing contests
can be quite substantial. Of
course, the prizes will vary among
songwriting contests,
and will depend on factors such
as promotion,  number of entries
and entry fee.  Some of the larger
songwriting contests offer larger
prizes, while some of the small
ones may not.  Sponsorship plays
a large role, as
songwriting and
lyric writing
competitions with
corporate sponsors can afford to
offer bigger prizes.
