WELCOME TO SONGDOOR!
Open April 15 - November 15
SongDoor is an annual worldwide songwriting competition that's open to amateurs and professionals, ages 16 and older.
We are here to help you do two things: first, to help you be a better songwriter. Second, get your music heard by industry pros who have influence and connections. We give you 3 FREE songwriting tools ($220 worth) just for entering. No other competition does that because no other competition cares about their writers like we do. Here's the proof.
Since 2006, our entry fee has been $10, and we have steadfastly stuck to that—however, inflation has hit us just like everyone else and we’ve had to raise it to $15. That’s still less than half of other reputable contests. We only wish we could have kept it the same. Thank you very much for your understanding.
Our judges are Grammy®/Emmy/Dove award winners, million-selling writers and music icons. We want to put your best work in front of them and launch a few careers.
Our winners and finalists have gone on to big things. Z-FLO (2011) is now a huge YouTube star. Robert Gillies (2009) just had a cut with Machine Gun Kelley x Bebe Rexha. Andrea Speaks has cuts under consideration for The Blacklist , Narcos, and others. Anthony Snape (2008) has had dozens of placements, from Saturday Night Live to Good Morning America. We could go on ... point is, we'd like to add you to the list.
