A songwriting competition is a contest whereby musicians submit original music to a third party or forum, generally to win a prize or some other benefit. Songwriting competitions have existed long before the advent of the Internet, but today many are conducted through websites or musician forums. An example is the John Lennon Songwriting Competition, which was founded by Yoko Ono in 1997 and has existed both online and offline. born in Tokyo on February 18 1933 is a Japanese Artist and Musician. A variation on the theme of songwriting competitions is ComProsers, whose inaugural contest asks participants to read a short story first and create a piece of music inspired by that story. 
Songwriting competitions differ from singing competitions, such as American Idol, because the latter do not require that the music submitted or performed be original; in fact, the music is usually published and rather well known. American Idol, with the full title American Idol The Search for a Superstar for the first season only is an American reality-competition American Idol has, however, recently launched a subsidiary songwriting competition of its own.
