Nashville, TN (March 17, 2010) – Daywind Music Group and the Gospel Music Association (GMA) have partnered to host the Southern Gospel Song Contest with the intent of finding the best-unknown Southern Gospel songs and offer a chance to have them recorded by a nationally recognized artist. Unpublished songwriters (currently unaffiliated or unsigned to a publishing company) are encouraged to submit their Southern Gospel song(s) for review (see “Submission Instructions” below).

Songs submitted will be judged by Daywind Music Publishing’s staff, a team of publishers working daily with top songwriters and artists such as Gerald Crabb, Ronny Hinson, Marty Funderburk, Austins Bridge, Karen Peck & New River, Triumphant, The Perrys, and many other award winners.

The Southern Gospel Song Contest opened March 12, 2010 and runs through April 8, 2010. Any submission after April 8, 2010, 5:00 PM CST will not be included in the judging. A valid entry will include a Song Submission Form found below and the $25 entry fee (per song). Songs should be limited to 4 minutes and 30 seconds. No more than two songs per person will be accepted.

One Grand Prize winner and two Runner-Up winners will be chosen and announced by April 30, 2010. Winners will be contacted by the GMA.

The Grand Prize winner will receive:

-One free registration to GMA’s Immerse event in July 2010
-Automatic semi-final place in the Immerse song contest
-Single song publishing agreement with Daywind Music Publishing
-CD stack from Southern Gospel music’s top names
-Opportunity to be recorded by a nationally recognized artist

The two Runner-Up winners will receive:
