GINA Songwriter Contest

Welcome! In the past, GINA offered the Songwriter Contest as a venue for songwriters to have their songs heard by industry professionals and the opportunity to win valuable prizes. The Contest was also a venue to bring visibility to a missing person or persons. Each Contestant was paired with a missing person or persons from their area, turning the spotlight not only on themselves and their music but also on the missing, giving those who have vanished another chance to be FOUND. Helping others through music is a mainstay in the entertainment industry, and GINA is proud to be a part of that tradition. The contest is currently on hiatus.
