The three finalists (or musicians of their choice) will perform their songs, and the audience vote will decide the final ranking. Cash prizes will be awarded: $100 for First Place, $50 for Second Place, and $25 for Third Place.
Submissions should be consistent with a folk music style. Both music and lyrics must be the original work of the entrant(s). One entry per songwriter. Please review the rules PDF for full details.
