In this category the Songwriter does not necessarily need to be the performer of the song submitted. The song can also be a co-written song. To be successful in this category the song needs to have good structure and melody line. The song also needs to engage the audience through sound, feeling or lyric. Ultimately the song needs to stand out from the rest in some way.
We are looking for:
- Strength of composition
- Relevance to category
- Delivery of composition
Although recording quality and production values are not governing factors in this category, we expect a reasonable standard. A strong piece will be severely hampered either by poor delivery or recording. The winning piece will be the one which best meets these requirements.
