April Fresh Productions is having a songwriting contest for songwriters and performers. This contest is only for unpublished songs and unsigned acts, and the entrants must be 18 years of age or older and owner of all material submitted. This means that the copyright is owned by the person submitting the song/songs, and if there is more than one owner, the owner of the submitted song/songs must notify any of the other owners/writers if the song/songs submitted are chosen for the performance. Winners are chosen on the ability to construct a song from beginning to ending, not on the quality of recording, and the ability to perform the song/songs. April Fresh Productions is looking for new bands and singer/songwriters to work with in the near future. All submissions will be listened to and every songwriter will be contacted after an evaluation has been made. Evaluations will be made by April Devereaux, a published singer/songwriter that has been signed to Island Records, Polygram Records, and written, arranged, and produced for Octane Records, EML/Rockfort Inc, Star Lodge Entertainment and more. April has three projects being released this fall 2010. Also on the panel are two star producers who have worked with multi platinum acts; these star producers are to be announced to eight bands, singer/songwriters chosen to perform the last week in December 2010. Submissions are being accepted through November 15th, 2010. Again, there will be eight bands, singer/songwriters chosen to perform in a local Seattle club in front of a panel consisting of successful artists, producers, and industry professionals the last week in December 2010 for the chance to win one of three prizes. All prizes will be awarded at the end of the contest. Remember, entries are only being accepted through November 15th, 2010.
