HONOLULU, Hawaii /Music Industry Newswire/ Sat, 10 Sep 2011 - The Goodnight Kiss Competition (www.goodnightkiss.com/contest.html), now in its second decade of success, will this year run from the start of September through the middle of November. One big difference between the annual Goodnight Kiss competition and other contests that seem to hold mini-events every month is that many of the Goodnight Kiss judges are actively seeking material to license for their projects.
One judge, Wayne Clark of Mirage International Productions, says he wants to hear every entry because he uses a great deal of music in his companys movies, ads, videos and major segments for TV. Thus, every entry will also be an audition for those opportunities.
Similarly, judge Matt Forger (Michael Jackson, Yumi Matsutoya) will be considering songs for presentation to the producers, managers and recording artists he sees every day at his Anisound mixing/mastering studio and his Rock n Roll Recording studio.
Each entry will also be considered for:
* a record deal by Spectra
Records president Cornelius White
We consider these exciting opportunities as additional prizes, states Janet Fisher of Goodnight Kiss Music, but the actual awards are also pretty impressive. Prizes include cash awards, a complete music video, multi-tone guitar pick-up gear from Awesome-Guitars, a 2T Fantom External HD, Swarovski crystal earbuds, photo featured in Music Connection magazine, interview and song performance on one of Sheena Metals programs on the nationally syndicated LA Talk Radio programming, online memberships to the Music Registry Film & TV Guide, Crystal USB drive bracelets, copies of the Indie Bible and Indie Venue Bible, USB Drives, DVD spindle packs, copies of the hilarious Music Horror Stories book, Broadjam memberships, and more.
Sponsors are rallying around the event as they have in prior years. We have been proud to be an online sponsor for Goodnight Kiss for many of their competitions, says Jesse Spohn of Broadjam.
Using real world industry contacts in the film, TV and ad industries, Goodnight Kiss pitches contest entries to active decision-makers. Plus, albums and collections we have created from contest entries are earning sales royalties for our participants, Fisher notes. Our many albums on iTunes and other legitimate music sites are promoted for more major uses whenever appropriate. In addition, contest winners are found in films, ads, and shows that have received digital and terrestrial broadcasts throughout the world.

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., April 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Longtime music publisher Goodnight Kiss Music (Hollywood, CA) is holding a new songwriting competition for 2011, and is seeking additional outside sponsors for the event. The contest begins in August, with winners announced in December. This year's prizes include cash, instruments, hard drives, Swarovski Crystal earbuds and Crystal USB bracelets.
For the 2011 contest, Goodnight Kiss is seeking additional outside sponsors desiring to promote their music-related service or business through donating prizes or sponsoring ads. Reflecting the increasing importance of video tracks for music, one of the 2011 prizes will be a music video of the winner's song, provided by sponsor TuneVid.
Since 1987, the Goodnight Kiss competitions, reaching an ever-larger audience and increasing number of entrants, have tapped the best new material from professional and semi-professional artists and musicians. "These are the people who are just on the edge of finding success," noted publisher Janet Fisher. "They are ready, but have had little access or opportunity for showing their work to the industry. We do that." Past winners of Goodnight Kiss' competitions have had their songs placed in films, commercials, and TV shows, as well as cut by others.
Goodnight Kiss is offering sponsors an Executive Package ($2,000), Business Package ($1,000), Small Business Package ($500), Professional Package ($100), as well as individual sponsorships for $50. Up to 50% of the cost of an ad can be "in-kind," in the form of an equal-value service or product. Executive, Business, Small Business and Professional sponsors get featured for a minimum of 12 months on the Contest Webpage (prominence dictated by the amount of the package) and on the Sponsor Webpage, and in the company's monthly newsletter, sent out electronically to over 6,000 songwriters, musicians, producers, and music journalists.
"We will promote (sponsors) in all our other PR - we usually do a series of releases during the entry time," Fisher said. "And we also give them a Web presence at our site until our next contest - so at least a year for most sponsors."
Past winners of Goodnight Kiss contests include Rich McCulley (one of whose songs was used on the Grey's Anatomy TV series), Jack Anthony and Gregory Bennett (whose winning entries were used in TV commercials on KRCA-TV, Los Angeles), and John Palermo, whose "A Little Bit Softer" was cut by young artist Katie Dee. "Sweet Little Christmas Kiss," by the songwriting team of Howe, Plavnieks & Heck, which won a spot on Goodnight Kiss' "To All a Goodnight" Christmas-themed CD, is in the film Happy Holidays: The Movie.
