Song of the Year is an international contest encouraging the art and discipline of songwriting. Our primary focus is to find great songwriters while helping them network with professionals in the music industry. Songwriter's submissions are judged by a panel of music professionals. The preliminary-judging staff consists of individuals who have showed leadership in music related fields as well as notable songwriters. Top yearly winners will be judged by an elite-panel of judges consisting of Grammy Award winners as well as individuals from Rolling Stone, ABC television, and more.  

Each month we select one winner and four finalists from each of the ten categories (50 songs per month). Those songs are sent out  to major/minor labels, publishers, entertainment attorneys, music managers, and many other outlets who we have relationships with. These are resources that have agreed to listen to our top songs each month. Monthly winners'/finalists'  information will be distributed accordingly.  Should there be  further interest in your material, our affiliates will contact you directly. At year's end, 12 monthly "winning" songs from each category will be judged by a secondary-judging panel who selects one song to represent each category. These final 10 songs from each category will compete for the honor of "Song of the Year" as well as the yearly prizes. The top song of the year will be determined by the final judging panel.
