Magic City Songwriting Contest 2020


Magic City Songwriting Contest 2020

Our 2020 Magic City Songwriting Contest is now closed. Now our judges deliberate! The winner of this year’s contest will be contacted via email to schedule a day to record his/her music at the Mason Music Recording Studio within the first two weeks of June. If accommodations cannot be made, or the winner cannot be reached, a runner up will be selected for the grand prize package.

Be the first to know when we announce our theme for the 2021 Magic City Songwriting Contest!



Our judges will score submissions based on a few criteria: melody, lyrics, composition, and originality. Make sure your song clearly references the theme too! Songs that do not reference the theme will be disqualified.

All submissions must be family-friendly and include no profanity. Only original music is allowed. Please limit your submission to 5 minutes in length.

Submissions can be made in the form of voice memos, YouTube video clips, or digital demo recordings of any kind. Please also submit lyrics in a PDF document for consideration. Lyrics must include the song title and composer’s name for administrative purposes.
