COLLEGE BATTLESOCIAL JUSTICE PRIZE in SONGWRITING - Spring 2013
This year’s theme can be songs related to Social Justice in any way. Whether it’s a song about how to get through tough times, how to change the world, about a personal experience (whether dark or positive) that you feel is important to share, or even a song of inspiration, we want to hear it.
If you have an original song recorded that could be a fit for this:
Submit your best mp3 via email to SocialJustice@collegebattle.com either as an attachment or download link by FRIDAY, MAY 24 at 6pm PST
Include a lyric sheet
Include a few lines of why the song is significant to some angle of “Social Justice”
HOW IT WORKS
Beginning in 2009, College Battle of the Bands teamed up with The Elfenworks Foundation to find music whose message told the stories of those suffering from social injustices. Bring your message home in a creative new way that uses the power of music to open ears, hearts and minds. Possible directions you may choose to follow include:
Write a new anthem to rock the world for social justice in America, in the spirit of: This Land is Your Land by Woodie Guthrie; Waiting on the World to Change by John Mayer; and Where is the Love by The Black Eyed Peas.
Write a ballad which brings home a personal tale of poverty, inequality or social injustice experienced by an individual in America, in the spirit of: Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton; He Was My Brother by Paul Simon; and Brothers Under the Bridge by Bruce Springsteen.
LOVE, UNITY AND PEACE
Write a song that motivates people to work together for social justice in America, in the spirit of the great songs on love, unity and peace: Ripple by The Grateful Dead; One Love by Bob Marley; and Fly Like an Eagle by Steve Miller Band.
The top entries will be recognized in Hollywood, CA on June 20-22, 2013, where artists will have an opportunity to earn up to $5,000 in cash grants.
