Do you wish your songs could be heard by the music industry? Have you ever entered an international talent or songwriting competition? If so, chances are you had to go to the expense of travel and lodging, not to mention expensive entry fees associated with such events.
Now aspiring Christian artists have an alternative to the high cost of effective music competition - an international Christian Music contestâ€¦ without having to leave homeâ€¦ at a fraction of the costâ€¦ and endorsed by the likes of Twila Paris and Russ Lee.
For just $35.00 the folks at Contemporary Christian Music Network International are providing the opportunity to have your musical talent and songwriting expertise judged by a blue-ribbon panel of industry professionals. For those who get past the first level of competition, the contest moves to video. It could be the opportunity of a lifetime for the right person - their music discovered by a recording label or industry talent scout.
Aspiring Christian artists are invited to compete in a Talent Search Contest and a separate Songwriting Contest, both of which will be reviewed by an elite panel of qualified professionals. The occasion to showcase and to potentially open industry doors is the ultimate challenge in this network with pros from the Christian music field. Prestigious awards and useful prizes will also be given to the first, second and third place winners, and all proceeds from the Songwriting contest will be donated to Speed the Light, a popular missions-related charity. With nominal expense all entrants can support missions and potentially win awards that could put their music in front of publishers and producers or open venues in other states.
The deadline for the Artist Talent Search is May 1, 2004, and the Songwriting Contest rules will be announced shortly. CCMNI also has a free mailing list for contest updates and industry tips.
