Live Heats And London Finals
Live music rules! 54 writers in 6 regions will be selected to compete in live heats around the UK with the finals held at a special celebrity Gala night in London.
It's All About The Song
The antidote to the TV 'karaoke' competitions! Our competition is all about the songwriter and the song. If you don’t perform yourself, you can bring your own singer or players. All we’ll be judging is your songwriting skills, not how cool you look.
Meet The Hitmakers
Live heats, semi finals and final will feature panels of multi million selling songwriters, artists, producers and music business experts from The Songwriting Academy to give you the best feedback possible.
Proceeds To Charity
Music could change the lives of our winners. And this year we’re pleased to be supporting Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy, so it can change the lives of others too!
Our prizes are chosen not only to thrill but to give the winning writers amazing opportunities to develop their craft even further. And who could say no to a week writing songs in Andalusia, Spain!
The Songwriting Academy has teamed up with global brand Caffè Nero to bring new songwriters into the spotlight, whilst raising as much money for charity as possible. We are supported by trusted organisations PRS, BASCA, and Musicians Union.
