The Songwriters’ Association of Washington (SAW) presents the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest (MASC) to help songwriters receive recognition for their work and to further excellence in songwriting through education.
All entrants compete for monetary awards, music industry services, music conferences, memberships, showcases, and Awards Gala Performances. Gold Winners in individual categories compete for overall Grand, Second and Third Prizes. Grand, Second & Third Place Overall Prize Winners are not eligible for the $100 category Gold prize.
Your entry fee, in addition to making you eligible for all the prizes including the $1000 Grand Prize, provides funding for many educational and networking opportunities in the art and business of songwriting. SAW provides emerging songwriters with performance opportunities, workshops and peer critique. For more information, visit the SAW website.

You may enter as many songs as you wish in each category. You may enter the same song in more than one category. Entry fees are calculated based on one category per song, however, so entering a song in two or more categories means that additional entry fees will apply.
