Your Sound - Your Lyrics - Your Song

Write your own songs, fiddle with lyrics, create compositions! SONGS - the songwriting competition in cooperation with the Stiftung Bildung und Soziales der Sparda Bank Baden-Württemberg will take place for the seventh time in 2022 and will once again give young songwriters the chance to stand on the big stage with their song.

Participants can apply solo or as a band - also in cooperation with their teachers and educational specialists - with their strongest song. The best ideas will be rewarded with attractive prizes!

There are prizes in kind worth a total of 10,000 € for the musical equipment of schools, music schools and youth centres. In addition, the winners will receive professional coaching at the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg.
