Musicians on a Mission Songwriting Contest 2019

Write a song about a social problem, issue or community need, and you could win a $100.00 for yourself and another $100.00 for a charity of your choice.

Musicians on a Mission (MOAM) is sponsoring a songwriting contest with the goal of raising awareness and attracting attention to an issue that is near and dear to your heart. It may be a social injustice, an unmet need, a neglected population or anything that moves you. Submitted music must be completely original and previously unpublished.

Entrance to the contest is free to members of Musicians on a Mission. For non-members, a $20.00 fee will be charged, which will entitle the entrant to a one-year membership in Musicians on a Mission. If you are not a member, you must fill out the membership form and pay the membership fee prior to submitting your song. MOAM board members and their families are not eligible to participate.

Songs must be submitted either in video or MP3 format to by midnight July 15, 2019. Submissions received after the deadline will not be considered for this contest. Songs will be judged not only by the quality of the music and lyrics, but also on the potential to inspire action and/or create change. Songwriters should specify the issue or cause they are writing about, and include a copy of the lyrics.

The first-place, second-place and third-place winners will be announced and invited to perform at a special event in October. The winner will receive $100 as well as a $100 donation to a charity of their choice. The second-place winner will receive $75.00 and a $75.00 donation to a charity of their choice. The third-place winner will receive $50.00 and a donation of $50.00 to a charity of their choice. The first-place winner will also be interviewed by Jeff Raspe on 90.5 WBJB, and will be invited to be included on MOAM’s next compilation CD.

Musicians on a Mission reserves the right to utilize all songs submitted for promotional purposes and to raise awareness of the issue highlighted in the song. Please see official rules.
