October 7, 2013 - Due to extremely high demand, the International Songwriting Competition (ISC) has extended the deadline for entering songs until November 4, 2013. ISC is open to amateur and professional songwriters, and entries are accepted online through the ISC platform, Sonicbids, ReverbNation, Broadjam, or through the mail. Within this extended deadline period, ISC will be offering some special promotions and incentives.

One of the most prestigious and respected songwriting competitions in the world, ISC gives away a total of more than $150,000 in cash and prizes (including $25,000 cash for the Grand Prize winner alone), and gives songwriters 22 different categories to enter their songs into. Not only do ISC winners receive great prizes and media recognition, but winners also receive a lot of industry attention.

Previous ISC winners include: Gotye and Kimbra (best known for their Grammy winning, million-selling single "Somebody That I Used To Know"), Passenger, The Band Perry, Gin Wigmore, Bastille, and many more.
