OKMusic.fm Wants Your Original Song for a Halloween Song Contest
Fri, 28 Sep 2012 11:23:38
Halloween is the best time of the year and OKMusic.fm is dying to hear original tunes from unsigned artists for the site's Halloween Song Contest. The contest is the first from OKMusic's new series of monthly, themed events designed to give undiscovered talent an opportunity for worldwide exposure.
OKMusic is looking for songs that capture the Halloween spirit and summon up the excitement and fun of the annual October holiday. The only rule is that music entered must be an original composition by the submitter. No resurrecting someone else's moldy oldie and doing a cover; OKMusic wants fresh blood.
The outcome of the contest will be determined by the OKMusic community. The song that has the most likes by October 27 will be the declared the winner.
The winner will get exposure to the social network's millions of visitors worldwide and be highlighted in the new front page OKMusic "Featured Artist" pane. Special treats will include a crystalline star trophy laser-etched with the artist/band's name; OKMusic winner stickers the artist/band can use to promote themselves locally; and a nationally distributed press release about the winning band and song.
"The OKMusic Halloween song contest is the first of many monthly contests designed to provide our artists with opportunities to build a fan base," Akiko Asami, CEO, OKMusic, explains. "Our mission is to help our members get discovered."
Recently, Canadian artist Rich Chambers had a song selected for the soundtrack of an upcoming Hollywood film, Chilly Christmas, through a contest on the site.
