WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I ENTER????

Great Question! 

We have ONE person who will confirm your entry and assign your entry a NUMBER. This person will be the ONLY one who ever sees names.

The lyrics, now represented by a number, will be passed to the Nomination Committee. The Committee will narrow the entries down and pass those Lyrics to the Judging Panel of industry pros(Names will be released AFTER the contest is over)! 

The judges, like the Nomination Committee, will judge completely blind...never knowing who wrote any of the entries. WE ARE THE ONLY AWARDS AND CONTESTS TO USE A COMPLETELY BLIND, TWO TIER, PANEL. We do this to maintain Integrity...NO ONE PLAYS FAVORITES, NO ONE TALKS TO JUDGES, and transparency is upheld! 

It's up to YOU to keep your assigned number private!

Is it LEGIT?

Well, if presenting lyrics blindly to proven members of a nominating committee, and then being judged by industry pros...while competing against all levels of writers, from newbies to Nashville Writers is legit..then YEP!!!

This is your chance to learn, build a resume, and see if YOU can Fill Their Shoes! 

Why a FEE???? 

We charge the Lowest Fee for a legit Lyric Contest. The Fees are for Trophies and shipping costs! We are assuming all the risk, if you win, you Will get your trophy! 

 WHAT IF I GET NOMINATED?

You will be notified if you are nominated so that you can brag a bit!!!! A Nomination is no small feat!

What if I Win????

You will receive a trophy commemorating your Name, song, and the Quarter/Year of Fill Their Shoes Music Lyric Contest!
