NY Songwriters Circle 2006 Songwriters Contest

The New York Songwriter’s Circle will be holding it’s first annual songwriting contest, which ASCAP is proud to sponsor. The purpose of the Songwriter’s Circle contest is akin to what the Circle has always represented: Offering recognition and support to the best unsigned songwriters as well as bringing together people who love to perform great original songs in front of a supportive audience. The contest will support and value an artist’s unique presentation as much as their songs.

12 finalist will be chosen and advance to the final round, where each invited finalist will perform two songs of his or her choice in front of a live audience and a panel of acclaimed judges. Of these, five co-winners will be selected. The five co-winners will perform in front of a live audience at the contest’s Finale show.

Final performances will be recorded and filmed. All artists must sign a waiver for possible future use in a compilation CD. Finals will be held 8 pm, November 1, 2006 and November 2, 2006 at The Bitter End.
