The philosophy behind the Freeway Records "TAP IN" Music Competition is distinctively different from the lottery-style competitions that receive 20,000 or 30,000 entries each year.
Unlike highly competitive "big cash prize" contests that reward a small percentage of entrants, the Freeway Records "TAP IN" Music Competition offers a valuable benefit to every songwriter who enters. All entrants receive a detailed evaluation from the contest judges.
How Songs Are Judged:
Judges base their evaluations on the universal hallmarks of songwriting excellence: Engaging lyrics, creative use of language, effectively memorable melodies, and overall songwriting technique.
Lyric Only entries are judged using the same lyrical criteria — plus Judges evaluate lyrics on how successfully they can be adapted to music.
Note: Judges focus on the quality of the song - NOT the performance or quality of the recording.
Three Rounds of Judging:
Level One — All entries in all categories are judged by helpful and knowledgeable music-industry professionals, each selected for his or her expertise in specific style categories (Pop, Country, R&B, Hip-Hop, etc...)
Level Two — Judges advance 100 songs (top 10 songs in each songwriting category) to Level Two. Five songs are selected from each category to receive Outstanding Achievement In Songwriting awards. The top song in each category wins a First Place Award and advances to compete for the Grand Prize.
Level Three — Grand Prize Winner of the Freeway Records "TAP IN" Music Competition is selected from the First Place category winners!
