Guitar Center Singer-Songwriter Contest

Guitar Center Singer-Songwriter Contest

The Guitar Center Singer-Songwriter Contest is created in conjunction with ASCAP, a national PRO, to find the nation’s best singer-songwriter!

The contest is video based, with a large social media element (you’ll have to get votes by promoting yourself) to end up in the list of “top artists.” If you have a large social media following, this may be the contest for you!
