Congratulations! It is my honor and pleasure to personally inform you that the song "The Raving World Orchestra" has won Third Place in the Instrumental category in the 2010 International Songwriting Competition. With over 15,000 entries from 115 countries, this is a remarkable achievement, and ISC and its judges applaud the skill and dedication to the craft of songwriting that this win has proven.
Finalists were chosen from over 15,000 entrants, making this an extraordinary achievement. In fact, this was the most competitive year to date, so you should be very proud of this accomplishment. Each year the entries have gotten better and better, but this year was unabashedly the best in terms of quality of songwriting. As a result, it was more difficult than ever to select the finalists and semi-finalists. It was a daunting challenge."
"Dear GASC entrant,
