The 3rd Annual Williamsburg Live Songwriter Competition (WLSC2006) is both a songwriting and live event competition that began in 2003. The first prize is $4000 and all finalists will be featured in a compilation CD to be released by JezebelMusic.com, a New York-based music talent and promotion company.

The WLSC2006 is open to amateur and professional songwriters who have sold less than 250,000 CD units over the past five years. Entrants must submit one original song, five minutes in length or less. Entrants must be the singer of their own original song both on the submitted recording and for the live competition.

You don't need a professional recording. Entries will be judged on originality, music and melody, composition and lyrics (when applicable).

150 contestants will be chosen to play in the Live Competition that will occur in New York City during eight consecutive nights of music at eight different venues. Submissions will be limited to 250. At that point, we will not take any more submissions, so be sure you submit today.

Judges at the live competition will come from BMI, Atlantic, Columbia, and other notable and independent record labels, journalists, and musicians. Over 1,000 people will attend the live performances.

Besides all the exposure and potential industry contacts, we award the following cash prizes:

  • 1st prize: $4000
  • 2nd prize: $750
  • 3rd prize $250.
