The International Songwriting Competition (ISC) is an annual song contest that provides both aspiring and established songwriters with the invaluable opportunity to gain an audience at a professional and international level. Musical talent of songwriters at all levels are judged by a prestigious panel of judges, based on creativity, orignality, lyrics, melody, arrangement, and overall likeability.

71 Winners across a number of categories receive great prizes, further their music careers, and gain recognition in the competitive music industry. The previous Grand Prize Winner received a generous prize package that included a cash prize of 25,000 USD, a six song recording package at The Tracking Room, a fully mastered album from Lurssen Mastering, and an Art & Lutherie Roadhouse Acoustic Guitar provided by Godin Guitars.

Both amateur and professional songwriters have the chance to benefit from exposure to the most influential decision-makers in the music industry and join the ranks of previous winners, including Gotye, Bastille, Kehlani, Gin Wigmore, and King & Country.
