Official Post from ISC:

The International Songwriting Competition (ISC) is pleased to announce its 2016 winners. This year ISC received more than 16,000 entries from 137 countries throughout the world. 

For the first time in the history of the competition, the Grand Prize is awarded to Canadian songwriters.
