2018 Worship & Christian Songwriting Contest

The WorshipTheRock.com songwriting contest is kicking off for 2018! Last year's contest was great and brought an awesome collection and variety of entries, resulting in some fabulous winning songs  [See the 2017 Contest Winners]!  Here are the details for this year's contest:

  • This will run as TWO SEPARATE CONTESTS! Instead of worship songs being judged alongside of broader scale contemporary Christian songs, we are separating them into two categories.
  • Praise & Worship Category: Entries into this category are expected to be congregational worship songs, intended for the Sunday morning (or whatever day) church worship service.
  • Contemporary Christian Category: Entries into this category are expected to be the non-congregational songs that would be more for suited for radio play, church service "special music", or just listening for the enjoyment and encouragement!
  • Great panel of experienced judges that will evaluate and score each entry, AND provide feedback! Most songwriting contests give you nothing back. We want to encourage, help and give any guidance that we can!
  • Every contest entrant will receive a $100 Discount Code for a guitar from New Sound Acoustics! (on top of 11% worship leader discount)
  • Song entry fee is only $30 USD! The fee is discounted when submitting more than one song. You will be required to submit an MP3 and a chord chart for each song entry.
  • Entries are being accepted from May 16 through July 31, 2018 at midnight MST.
  • Winners will be announced on or before August 24, 2018.
