Calling all singer-songwriters for the Summer Singer-Songwriter Competition! The competition focuses on original musicians in the singer-songwriter genre. This yearly event invites performers in the genre to enter for a chance to win great prizes. The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center offers singer-songwriters the opportunity to perform an original song live, and win great prizes! Competitors submit a video of themselves performing an original song. Then, selected artists are invited to perform live at SBDAC on Friday, August 19th in front of a judge’s panel and a live audience. Judges will determine the Grand Prize Winner, and the audience has a chance to vote for the People’s Choice Winner. The deadline for entry is August 11th. 

Out of state submissions are encouraged, but the competition does not provide airfare or travel accommodations. Each performer will have the chance to play one original song for the audience and judges. Judges will also give feedback on each performance.

See performers play for a chance to win prizes and a spot at the Island Hopper Songwriter Fest!

Join us for the final performance of the Summer series, and support local, original music!
