HOW IT WORKS

Entries will be screened by the SongDoor staff, and the finalists will be sent to the judges, who will decide on the winners in a strict blind judging process. Songs are judged equally on originality, melody, composition/structure and lyrics (except in the Instrumental category). The performance and recording quality will not be considered; this is all about songwriting.
