THE MID-ATLANTIC SONG CONTEST 

presented by the Songwriters' Association of Washington

MASC 37 Category Awards

Below is a list of all our winners with a link to the song that got them their award. And pay attention to how you well might have ranked them differently. There were so many good songs this year that didn't make this list. And we are ever aware of the dark side of ranking one thing over another. Browse this group of songs and you will discover two things. First, there is a universe of songwriters out there worth discovering. Second, you could write a song like this with enough time and care. Find ways to support these musicians and all your local artists. And start writing for next year's contest!
