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!

HOW IT WORKS
Competing artists will be ranked based on their online fan growth during the first round. Ten singer-songwriters will then be hand-selected from the list of top-ranked artists to travel to Los Angeles where they will perform live during event’s finale.
