An early heads up to all ASCAP Songtrust members to be sure to enter for the ASCAPPLUS awards this year! The ASCAPLUS Awards Program is available to songwriters who earn less than $25,000 in annual domestic performance royalties from ASCAP. The awards distribute millions of dollars every year to smaller, but exciting songwriters!
Songtrust is building a tool to help automatically submit all of our ASCAP members, but if you want to get ahead of the curve before the June 1 deadline, details on how to enter are here.
