    Amazing Festival. Last August, 2017 I was honored to be winner with the award "Best Song for a Film" with the song "LUNA". Professional, courteous and overall enjoyable to coordinate with. It’s been exciting to watch the festival evolve and hope to be a part of future nominations. An excellent festival. Thank you very much!

    I needed a competitive festival for the veteran film makers, that is capable of granting credibility. Which also have to have an opened mind to appreciate an artistic film that is not a main stream creation. I found myself at home in American Tracks Music Awards. Heavenly landing amongst great staff and appreciative judges. Highly recommended.

    Nancy, thank you for taking the time to review.
    You got selected and got semi-finalist in December 2017, because your music deserved it and was quality.
    You submitted your score for only $10. To the best of our knowledge, there is no better deal regarding a music competition. If we are mistaken, please feel free to reach out to us.
    All the best for your music !
