After the Entry Period all Entries that are Eligible for Prize Consideration will be distributed among the three “Judges”  who are knowledgeable in the skill and talent of songwriting.

In the 7 day period after the end of the Entry Period, the Judges will evaluate the Entries and rate them on a scale of 1 (being the lowest) to 100 (being the highest) in each of the following three categories: (1) lyrics; (2) melody and (3) originality.

In the event of a tie affecting the top three finishers, the tied entries will be resubmitted to the Judges for a re-judging between the tied entries alone. In the event that a tie remains after re-judging, the entry with the highest score in the lyrics category will be declared the potential winner, and if a tie remains after considering that score, the entry with the highest score in the melody category will be declared the potential winner. The decisions of the Judges are final and binding in regard to all matters relating to their judging of Entries.
