LOS ANGELES, CA: Los Angeles Attorney Douglas A. Crowder (http://crowderlaw.com) is holding a songwriting contest in which the first prize is $1,000, second prize is $500, and third prize is $250.

Dubbed the “Trial of the Century Songwriting Contest,” the contest is specifically for songwriters to write music to go along with lyrics written by Crowder for a musical comedy play entitled “Trial of the Century.” Crowder has written lyrics for 14 songs to be used in the musical, and contest entrants can write music for one or all of the 14 songs.

Douglas Crowder stated “Write the music for any of the 14 songs in the musical. If you need to modify the lyrics to make the music fit, that’s ok, so long as you keep the message of the song. Then send me a recording to demonstrate the melody and tempo. No entry fee for the contest. No limit to the number of entries you can make. You can write the music for one song, or for all 14 songs. ANY type of music is acceptable, including rock, folk, country, hip-hop, rap, pop, polka, classical – with one exception. No Country-Metal if you please! I will be the sole judge of the contest, and the only criteria will be whichever tune I like the best, or possibly what I think will sell the best.”
