UPDATE: Submissions for TNHC 2013 are now open.
The Next Holiday Classic is a free internet song contest for original holiday and seasonal songs. TNHC showcases songs that may not always be “cutting edge” according to current music trends, but rather, may stand the “test of time” for years to come.
You are invited to submit your entries and compete for cash prizes and the opportunity for your song to be presented to major recording artists and film/tv supervisors.
During each of the three consecutive Semifinals weeks beginning November 24, 2013, online voters will determine which songs will advance to the final. The Finals will then be held the week of December 15, 2013.
The Winner of The Next Holiday Classic 2013 will be announced December 25, 2013.
“Just a note to congratulate you on setting up this type of format for your song contests. I just found out I did not make the (finals) but I really felt that the songs picked were excellent and deserve to go on… WAY TO GO!” Pat Nelson, SASK
“I’ve been involved in a number of songwriting contests, won some, lost some but in my experience I have never been involved in a contest that was run more professionally and more fairly than this one.” John Visconti NY
