Ozzy, Jeff Beck join judging panel for International Songwriting Competition

Rockers Ozzy Osbourne and Jeff Beck have been added to the judging panel for the 2011 International Songwriting Competition.

The International Songwriting Competition (ISC) is an annual song contest whose mission is to provide the opportunity for both aspiring and established songwriters to have their songs heard in a professional, international arena.

ISC is designed to nurture the musical talent of songwriters on all levels and promote excellence in the art of songwriting. Both amateur and professional songwriters and musicians are invited to participate.

Depending on the category, submissions are judged on the basis of the following criteria: Creativity, Originality, Lyrics, Melody, and Arrangement; Production/Recording quality and vocal ability are not criteria being reviewed.

In addition to cash and merchandise prizes, winners benefit from a multilateral promotional campaign designed to give international exposure and attention to their songwriting achievements.

Ozzy and Beck join a length list of judges, including Tom Waits, My Morning Jacket, Robert Smith of The Cure, Tori Amos, Kelly Clarkson, Duran Duran's Simon Le Bon and Roger Taylor, and many, many more.
