UNSIGNED ONLY CONTEST 2018 - SUBMISSION OPPORTUNITY
2018 Winners announced by early September, 2018
Deadline: April 27, 2018
The goal of Unsigned Only is to find an outstanding, talented performer: a band or solo artist, a newcomer or veteran, raw or polished - the “gem” that needs to be discovered. This year’s Grand Prize Winner will win $20, 000 (USD) cash plus additional prizes, and one-on-one mentoring by an elite group of record company executives. Over 20 total winners will be selected in various genres. Winners will be selected based on individual songs.
2018 Categories Include:
AAA (Adult Album Alternative, AC (Adult Contemporary), Americana, Christian, Country, EDM (Electronic Dance Music), Folk/Singer-Songwriter, R&B/Hip-Hop, Rock, Pop/Top 40, Teen, Vocal Performance, Screen Shot (original songs in all genres suited for placement in Film/TV/Advertising/Gaming).
Official Judges/Mentors Include:
Aimee Mann, Grouplove, KT Tunstall, Lydia Loveless, Melanie Fiona, O.A.R., Jack Ingram, Aaron Shust, David Crowder, and many more.
Open only to artists who are not signed to a major label record company or any of its affiliates, subsidiaries, or imprints. Winners will be selected based on individual songs. Since Unsigned Only is a music competition (not a songwriting competition), it is advisable to submit as many songs as is necessary for the judges to have a good representation of the artist.
