SONGWRITING COMPETITION PRIZES
There are 2 winners of the Songwriting Competition each month, Best Song and Best Performance.
- Best Song of the Month
- Best Performance of the Month
A member can win Best Song Of The Month and Best Performance Of The Month twice during a season (with different songs) in each WCS Location. Playoffs are in July to determine Cotati Best Song Of The Year. In August, the winners of Best Song of the Year from every WCS Location compete at the Finals for WCS Best Song of the Year. Three winners are chosen to perform at the annual WCS Conference in September.
NEW: The talented songwriter who wins Song of the Year at the Cotati Chapter Competition wins the opportunity to open for a headliner at The Mystic in Petaluma on Friday, August 10th. This is a paid gig ($100) on the stage of a premiere venue in Sonoma County.
We are thrilled with the support The Mystic is offering to West Coast Songwriters.
