Songwriter Showcase

The Songwriter Showcase is our nationally-recognized singer-songwriter competition, open to anyone who writes and performs original music, and who is not currently signed to a major recording or publishing deal. Contestants are judged on the quality of the song’s composition, vocal delivery, and the overall performance.

Contestants are judged on the quality of the song’s composition (50%), vocal delivery (25%), and the overall performance (25%).

Ten (10) finalists will be selected to receive a 3-day pass to the 2023 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, Colorado to compete in a live performance contest for cash and prizes.
