SDSG’s 17th Annual Song Contest will be held Wednesday, November 12, 2008 at the Country Inn & Suites in Sorrento Valley. The contest is a popular tradition for San Diego writers, and offers a unique opportunity to hear a tremendous cross section of local work. Prize winners are selected by a panel of industry professionals in our final event on November 12, during which song entries recorded on CD or cassette are played for both judges and audience to hear. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded on this jam packed night, an exciting prospect indeed. If you are a songwriter, or a producer or artist looking for some new material, Country Inn & Suites, located at 5975 Lusk Boulevard , San Diego 92121 is the place to be on Wednesday, November 12.
This year’s grand prize includes a $500 Cash Award from SDSG. We’ll also be giving away a Taylor Guitar, thanks to Taylor’s generous support, and a stay at Pala Mesa Resort, too! Many other fine prizes, donated by local and national businesses will be awarded… Remember, the maximum total number of entries is only 70 songs, so do the math and you’ll know your chances of taking home a prize are excellent!
