OFFICIAL 2021 ISSA AWARDS NOMINEES

The International Singer Songwriters Association is so very proud to announce this year’s

Official 2021 ISSA Awards Nominees.

These talented and hard working artists had to qualify to attain this level of achievement and we know how hard they have worked to get here.

Voting begins on April 2nd, continues until the end of the month, and out of the hundreds of USA and International nominees you see listed here, only the Top 15 will be able to get their fans, family and friends to vote them into that Finalist Level.

From there, our judges will have all summer to decided who our winners will be in each category. Judges are the last two years’ Gold Level winners and have an opportunity to present, perform and participate in this event.

Many of our categories will have not just one, but three winners, Gold, Silver and Bronze. Gold winners cannot win again for two years following their win, allowing others to “Go for the the Gold”.
