Lorde, Tom Waits and Kesha are set to judge the International Songwriting Competition.

The 18-year-old 'Royals' hitmaker is among many other high profile artists who will feature on the panel, including British band Bastille, Swedish DJ Avicii, R&B vocal group Boyz II Men, 77-year-old legend Bill Withers, 'Somewhere Only We Know' singers Keane, dance-hall rapper Sean Paul and Run D.M.C.'s Darryl McDaniels.

The annual contest, which first launched in 2002, encourages songwriters to create ''something truly meaningful'' by giving away more than $150,000 in cash and prizes to the 68 winners.
