Indie International

You might know us from our online sonwriter community at

Since its inception in 2008, the Indie International Songwriting Contest has provided useful critiques and reviews for thousands of musicians. Helping and encouraging songwriters continues to be our focus.

Even though we are based out of the US, we are truly an international songwriting contest boasting contestants in over 55 countries!

Our Approach to Contests

How would it feel to have your songs carefully listened to?
Tired of popularity contests where you can only win if you already have a following?

We’re not named after a Beatle or connected to big time rock stars, but we grew up on the Beatles and believe all songwriters have a unique place in the music community, and deserve constructive feedback and opportunities to advance their craft and career.

You pay to enter, but you have a good chance at winning, and either way - you will receive priceless feedback.

Indie International Songwriting Network (and Indie International Songwriting Contest) is owned and operated by Radical Owl, LLC based out of Portland, OR.
