Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jun 27, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Toontrack has announced the launch of a songwriting competition with a $10,000 cash grand prize as well as the market’s leading drum sampler EZdrummer 2 and the entire line of related expansion titles.

Toontrack Songwriting Competition

Submission for the competition starts today and will run through the better part of July. The voting phase will commence in late July and the competition will conclude in September.

“There is an incredible amount of unheard talent out there and we hope this competition will help shine some light on not only the craft of songwriting but give voice and inspiration to aspiring, creative people around the world,” said Peter Knutsson, Toontrack’s CEO”

Aside from EZdrummer 2 and the entire line of expansions, there will be a cash prize for not only the winner ($10,000), but also the runner-up ($2,000). “The cash prizes are our way of giving the winner a financial platform equivalent of what a first-time publishing advance would amount to,” said Peter Knutsson.
