The International Songwriting Competition (ISC) has extended its deadline to 1 November 2011.
With a high-profile judging panel that includes Tom Waits, Johnny Clegg, Tori Amos, Ozzy Osbourne, Duran Duran and Kelly Clarkson, ISC offers songwriters and artists the opportunity to have their music heard by iconic recording artists, as well as many major and indie record label presidents, A&R executives, producers and music supervisors.
Amateur and professional songwriters are invited to participate for a chance to win a share of more than $150,000 in cash and prizes, including an overall grand prize consisting of $25,000 (US) cash and $20,000 in prizes.
ISC offers 22 categories that include all genres of popular music. Past winners have included artists from Grammy winners to hobbyist songwriters and everyone in between.
