ISC Announces 2007 FinalistsThe International Songwriting Competition (ISC) is pleased to announce its 2007 finalists and semi-finalists. Selected out of over 15,000 entries from 100 countries worldwide, they represent all genres of contemporary music and reflect an impressive wealth of diversity and talent.

This year's competition is the largest yet for ISC, with the biggest growth coming from entries outside the USA. For the first time ever, a majority of finalists and semi-finalists come from outside the USA, from countries as far away as Tanzania, Kazakhstan, Mariana Islands, Peru, Hungary, and many more. This year, 53% of finalists and 54% of semi-finalists come from outside of the USA. This embodies the true spirit of ISC and establishes it as the largest international songwriting competition in the world.

Over $150,000 (U.S.) in cash and merchandise will be awarded to 59 winners, including an Overall Grand Prize winner who receives $25,000 in cash (the largest cash Grand Prize of any songwriting competition in the world) and over $25,000 in prizes.
Winners are selected by a panel of high-profile judges and will be announced in April, 2008. ISC judges include executives from ten record labels (including the presidents of Epic and Universal Records) and celebrity recording artists. One winner will also be selected as part of the ISC Peoples' Voice which invites the public to listen to and vote for their favorite ISC finalist.
