From the world's leading authority on music comes this year's biggest search for the best and brightest new songwriting talent. The 13th Annual Billboard Song Contest is your chance to be heard by some of the biggest names in the music business. There are over $30,000 in prizes that could help skyrocket your career, including musical equipment, song placement on the 13th Contest Winners CD, a subscription to Billboard Magazine and much, much more. Plus, all entries will receive a personal song evaluation – and the top 1500 songwriters will receive an honorable mention certificate. Don’t miss this opportunity that could offer you unparalleled professional exposure.

This year the categories have increased to 13. Alongside the past categories we’ve added three new exciting categories: music video (your opportunity to be seen as well as heard); jingle (for sponsor BluBlocker sunglasses); and patriotic (with the opportunity for extraordinary recognition and exposure; read on).

Contest categories include: Rock/Alternative, Pop, Country/Folk, Jazz, Latin, World, Contemporary/Christian Gospel, R&B/Blues, Dance, Rap/Hip Hop, Music Video and Jingle.

The patriotic song category is a contest within a contest. It has an earlier deadline (Sept. 15) than the rest of the song contest to allow the winning song to be performed at The World’s Largest Concert scheduled to tape on October 18, 2005 through Billboard Song Contest sponsor MENC (The National Association for Music Education). Your original song submission should reflect on America’s heroes and patriotism to complement and support our National Anthem.

In order to submit to the music video category you must have a Supersonic EPK.

Don’t miss this opportunity that could offer you unparalleled professional exposure.
