We are excited to announce the finalist results of the 2018 Wildflower! Al Johnson Performing Songwriter Contest. Hundreds of entries poured in from all over the country and the 10 finalists have been chosen. The selection is a blind screening process by several experienced music promoters, songwriters, and educators familiar with original songwriting and performing techniques.
The finalists will perform on the United Healthcare Singer Songwriter Stage in the Eisemann Center the weekend of the Wildflower! Arts & Music Festival on Saturday, May 19th at 11:30 a.m. Three of these artists will receive a $500 cash award. The Michael Terry People’s Choice Award will also be judged by the audience and presented at the end of the performances. The winners of the final contest are invited to perform on the Courtyard Stage on Sunday, May 20th and sell their music or merchandise to fans. Lodging and access to the Green Room is provided as well as weekend festival passes for the finalist and a guest.
