Contest #1 – Show Us Your Video

  • Submit your video – live performance or produced/MTV-style video

Contest #2 – Best Social Media Campaign

(You gotta crowd source some love here!)

  • Create the biggest, loudest social media campaign about why you/your group should win
  • Send us your “social proof”…
  • Tag @MusicBiz101wp on Instagram and Twitter; Professor Philp on Snapchat
  • Submit your promotional YouTube video(s) to us
  • Send us your Memes, Gifs, stunts, posters, emails – everything you do to prove that you should win!
  • Plus, send us a video or mp3 of your group (so we know you can carry a tune)

** Any genre of music can be entered.  Just make sure you have 30 minutes of music to play.  

**  While this is a great way to promote your original tunes, you are welcome to perform cover tunes within your 30-minute set.  Our suggestion: If you play a cover tune (or two/or three), play it in YOUR style.  If you’re a Reggae band, don’t play Led Zeppelin’s “Rock ‘n’ Roll” the way Zeppelin played it.  Play it the way your band plays your original tunes.
