A new international songwriting competition has been started solely for unsigned bands,
"Unsigned Only is a unique international music competition designed for solo artists, bands, and singers who are not signed to a major label record company or any of its affiliates, subsidiaries, or imprints.
The goal of Unsigned Only is to find an outstanding, talented performer: a band, singer, or solo artist...a newcomer or veteran...raw or polished - the “gem” that needs to be discovered. Unsigned Only is looking for the total package"
As with the International Songwriting Competition Aussie bands always do well so ProCopy would love to see some unsigned bands do well too
