The Corpus Christi Songwriters association hosts an annual Songwriters Festival, Music Awards and Conference, held each February (beginning Feb. 16 – 19, 2018), featuring international, national and regionally renowned songwriters during a four-day event, hosting an array of concerts, workshops, and other songwriting-related events — kicking off on a Thursday, Feb. 16 and running through Sunday, Feb. 19.
Events will simultaneously take place in both downtown Corpus Christi and North Padre Island, giving festival-goers, and visiting songwriters alike, the opportunity to see all our beautiful city has to offer.
On Sunday, Feb. 19, an Awards Ceremony will be held, with awards given to local and regional songwriters and performers nominated by our community and CCSW Board of Directors (who will not be eligible for nominations), and judged by a non-partial / outside Jury.
A Best of Fest Award will also be given to ONE Songwriter (who submitted to play the festival through official CCSW submission outlets). Any songwriter / performer curated by the board will NOT be eligible for this award. Curated Songwriters and performers will NOT be In-Competition.
A conference will also be held to coincide with the festival, featuring Keynote Speakers, Breakout Sessions, Workshops, etc.
