_One of the favorite events at KMF's Hawai'i Songwriting Festival is our songwriting competition! Registered attendees may submit one (1) song to the songwriting competition before the event by the due date shown.
Six finalists will be chosen and announced on the first day of the conference. They will each perform their song that evening for all the attendees, and a panel of judges (selected staff members) will choose 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.
In addition to receiving various prizes from our sponsors, the winners will perform one song each in the concert series on Friday and Saturday nights (June 12 & 13)
How to enter the songwriting competition:
We are currently revising and updating the contest rules for 2015, and will post them soon. You can sign up to receive our newsletter to be sure you get updates as soon as they are available. Please note that submissions for the songwriting competition are accepted electronically or via mail and will be due before the start of the conference. Songs are reviewed in confidence by KMF staff members only.
**This event is held in conjunction with the KMF's Hawai'i Songwriting Festival and is entirely optional.
