How we pick the winners

A judging panel from the BandLab team will select the winners.

The judges’ decision will be final — and will be based on plays and artistic merit so get creative and make sure to promote it to get others to listen!

You can enter as many times as you like with different tracks, so long as they are published for the first time during the competition period.

How do I win?

  1. Publish a track on BandLab. You can use any device — iOS, Android or web!
  2. Tag it with the competition hashtag in the song description and your track will automatically be entered.

BandLab is FREE to use, you can sign up here, or download BandLab on your iOS or Android device.

FYI: Your entry has to be published for the first time during the competition period. If you have a private track created before the entry period that you would like to submit, you can do so when you publish it – but unpublishing an older track and republishing it will not work. Editing an existing song’s description with the hashtag doesn’t count either!

Lastly, LIKE an official BandLab Featured Collection of your choice to view the winning results!

Submissions don’t need to be created during the entry period, just published for the first time – so even if the contest hasn’t started yet, you can prepare your tracks now to make sure you have a head-start when the contest opens!
