Introducing Unsigned Only

Unsigned Only is the premier music competition in the world for indie and unsigned artists (including solo artists, bands, and singers) who are unsigned to a major record label.

Why does Unsigned Only include only unsigned artists? It’s simple. Limiting the competition to unsigned artists levels the playing field for entrants because they are not competing with well-known artists, Grammy winners, or artists with a major label machine behind them. The goal is to give indie artists exposure, recognition, and validation for their artistry.

  • $150,000 in Cash and Prizes shared among 28 winners
  • Prizes include a Grand Prize of $20 000 cash plus one-on-one mentoring by record label executives, top industry managers, major booking agencies and more
  • No physical event to attend (artists simply enter online, and either upload songs or provide streaming links like Soundcloud, Bandcamp, etc.) to their song

It is very easy to enter. You can enter through the mail or online through the Unsigned Only platform or via other platforms such as Sonicbids, Broadjam, or Radio Airplay. Also, you do not need to upload your song(s) because you can just enter tell them where to find the song online and they will listen to it there. Be sure to enter enough songs so that they can get a good representation of you as an artist.
