F.A.Q.'S

What styles of music are eligible?
Any Christian song of any style of music is eligible. Songs do not have to be "worship".

Does the recording have to be professional quality?
Your entry may be a simple home recording with one instrument or just vocals. It does not have to be a studio-quality recording. The judging will not be based on recording quality; it will be on the quality of the song itself. 

I'm a songwriter, not a singer. Do I have to perform my own song that I enter?
The writer of the song is not required to perform the song on the recording.

How long does the song have to be?
Please keep your song to under 7 minutes long.

Will I receive any feedback or critique?
Due to the amount of submissions, we are unable to provide feedback on songs. 

When will the winners be announced?
We will announce the winners on our site and notify them by Monday, August 19, 2013.

Can I enter the same song I've entered before?
You may enter a song you've entered for our previous songwriting contests, as long as you did not win 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place. 

How will the songs be judged?
Songs will be judged based on:

  • Lyrics
  • Melody
  • Creativity
  • Originality
  • Dynamics
  • Overall Effect
