When do aspiring young songwriting talents get a chance like this! In the contest format Your Song, youngsters up to the age of 18 have a chance to present their original songs to a TV audience. Each year, hundreds of young artists respond to the call to compete in the nationwide contest by submitting works in all musical genres. The top 16 are then invited to perform their songs in front of a jury. The young artists who make it through this round then attend a songwriting camp on Ibiza, where they must once again demonstrate their acumen.
The stakes get higher as their song is produced in a professional sound studio with prominent musicians like David Garrett, Till Brönner and Rolando Villazón. The tension reaches its peak in a live gala show in which the winner of the coveted Songwriter of the Year award is selected by TV viewers who phone in their votes.
