What is ISC?

ISC is designed to nurture the musical talent of songwriters on all levels and promote excellence in the art of songwriting. Amateur and professional songwriters and musicians are invited to participate. ISC has the most prestigious panel of judges of all the songwriting and music contests in the world, offering exposure and the opportunity to have your songs heard by the most influential decision-makers in the music industry.

"I was down at the river bank with my daughter when I got the out-of-the-blue phone call from the wonderful folks at the ISC office - if I hadn't been holding a 2 year old in my arms, I would have jumped in the river from excitement! What a huge boost to have a song that I care about so much connect with these ISC song champions and accomplished judges enough to be awarded Grand Prize."

– Matt Epp, Co-Grand Prize Winner (with Faouzia) 2016
