Yes, Hal Leonard’s Noteflight, an online songwriting program, is offering every contestant a  FREE 3 month subscription worth $99. Not only that, all 1st, 2nd and 3rd placegetters will receive additional cash or music industry prizes, all Top 10 placegetters will be recognised on stage at the National Songwriting Awards, a Maton Guitar will be won by an ASA Member of outstanding ability who attends the Awards, and the APRA/ASA Songwriter of the Year winner will be given $3,000 cold hard cash from the mighty APRA!
