The UK Songwriting Contest is one of the worlds longest running songwriting events that launched in London in 2002 in association with top music producers. It has a highly respected reputation in the international music industry. No other songwriting event in the world has had the backing of such well respected and prestigious organisations. This means that contestants are watched closely by the music industry’s leading producers and publishers, and many finalists and semi-finalists are ‘spotted’ and go on to enjoy music careers and deals (see below). The UKSC judging panels have featured highly respected Grammy, Emmy, CMA and BRIT Award winning Gold and Platinum Album producers and artists including Sting's producer Kipper Eldridge, Elton John's producer Stuart Epps and Britney Spears' Musical Director Simon Ellis among many others.
When I'm With You was awarded a Semi-Finalist in this contest and considered by the judges to be among the top songs in the contest.
