Paramount Song Contests

 PHASE 1 IS ENDING SOON!

Enter before September 30th to be eligible to win one of our monthly prizes!

The Nashville International Song & Lyric Competition® for Fall 2016 

It’s the ONLY International Song AND Lyric Competition offering all these advantages:

        • Over $150,000 awarded!
        • We send great songs entered by songwriters to artists looking for similar songs and submit them to TV Show & Film Music Catalogs. So all entries – not just winners – have a chance of getting to a great opportunity.
        • We reward all kinds of songs and lyrics equally… including  Today’s Hot Country, Traditional Country, Pop, Contemporary Christian, Gospel, Rock, AAA, Americana, Jazz, Blues and more.
        • Multiple contests throughout the year mean prizes are awarded faster and more often than contests that happen only once a year.
        • We level the playing field. Emerging songwriters don’t have to compete with pro writers who’ve already had pro recording, performance or publishing deals. That means if you’re looking for your first big break, you have a far better chance of winning and getting recognized.
        • Whether you write complete songs or concentrate solely on lyrics, this competition welcomes you. While some competitions are only for lyrics and others only for complete songs, we take pride in rewarding both.
