Call for entries: Woody Guthrie Folk Festival Songwriting Competition

From a press release:

The Oklahoma Songwriters & Composers Association, in association with The Woody Guthrie Coalition, is proud to announce the Annual Woody Guthrie Folk Festival Songwriting Competition. This international, folk-oriented songwriting contest is held in conjunction with the 13th Annual Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, held in Woody’s hometown of Okemah, Oklahoma, each July. This year’s Festival dates are July 14-18, 2010.

All entries must be postmarked by April 17, 2010.

Please do not send entries overnight, express or certified mail! This impedes the process, and is not necessary as postmarks are used exclusively as far as timeliness of receipt of an entry.
