The John Lennon Songwriting Contest announced an exclusive partnership with Tonos.com (www.tonos.com), the global musician's network founded by legendary music hitmakers Carole Bayer Sager, David Foster and Kenneth Babyface Edmonds.

Under the terms of the agreement, Tonos.com will serve as the exclusive online partner for the sixth annual songwriters' contest. As of now, songwriters can begin entering the contest by submitting their MP3 files through Tonos.com. The winners of the 2002 contest will receive a tonosPRO membership, the new subscription service designed to help musicians improve their skills, connect with other performers and move ahead in the music industry. In addition, all JLSC entrants who are not Tonos subscribers and who upload their submissions on Tonos.com will receive a free one-month subscription to tonosPRO.

Brian Rothschild, executive director of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, said, "We are very pleased with this new relationship. We have found that the online entries have more than doubled over the past two years. In addition to providing the ability for online submissions, we believe that Tonos can provide services to our winners that will garner the attention of industry heavyweights who can further the songwriters' careers. Tonos.com will be playing not only the grand prize winners' songs, they will also afford the opportunity for finalists to be heard for the first time."

"Tonos is excited to be named the exclusive online partner of the 2002 John Lennon Songwriting Contest," said Justin Herz, general manager/executive VP at Tonos.com. "The contest is another example of how Tonos helps musicians reach the top decision makers in the music business."
