:arrow: This month's Songwriting Competition is special.

SWC047 will play-act how a company is approaching and interacting with artists. The basic premise is, that there is an imaginary company reaching out to musicians in hope for finding one or multiple songwriters for a fictional in-the-making "sci-fi 4X strategy game". As usual, there is "a brief" and various audio examples present.

However unlike other songwriting competitions - where there is just a simple task with the encouragement to interact with each other already during the game - there is an active client interacting this time around. Each participant will get up to two responses by the "commissioning party" (until/including 21st of July) for ones production, telling you if you understood the brief, if you are on the right track and/or what one could still improve until the deadline has been reached. Something that would happen if you were to (e.g.) actively write a song for a commercial, or music for a short film, etc.

This endeavor does not only try to simulate a commissional work scenario, but also encourages more early/direct interaction for future songwriting games. As bonus incentive, if there are more than 20 participants, the Winners Podium might be opened up to offer a 5-position Winners Podium (exclusive to SWC047/July 2021).


The focus of this game is to "just make music". Giving and receiving constructive criticism/feedback being one of the main game mechanics, with the added bonus of also being able to edit/enhance your production until the the deadline has been reached.

Joining is absolutely free. If you can't join yourself, it would be tremendously help if you could spread the word about the Songwriting Competition. The more participants, the more interaction and feedback, the more fun.
