DISCOVERY. DEVELOPMENT. PROMOTION.
Acts must be 25 years old or younger to apply
Limited space available. Applications are reviewed on a “first come, first serve” basis
Acts can apply either as a solo or group (or both)
In the case where an act is either a group or band, fees are to be divided between each member
Acts are allowed to apply to more than one workshop, even if the same workshop is scheduled in different cities and/or on multiple dates.
Audition videos must be sent via YouTube or Vimeo links only – no other online video sharing method or files will be accepted
All musical styles are welcome, including: Pop, Rock, Alternative, Jazz, Classical, Hip Hop, R&B, Soul, Indie & Country
Audition videos can either contain an original piece or cover rendition: song choice should provide our selection jury with an accurate demonstration of your sound and potential
Due to an enormous amount of submissions, we cannot guarantee that our selection jury will watch each video in its entirety. Saying that, we suggest that audition videos remain no longer than one minute! (Note: investing a large amount of time and money into audition videos is not necessary as acts are judged strictly on skill)
Although we don’t mind videos that are shot using mobile devices, please ensure that the sound quality is acceptable and that your talent remains the focal point of the video. That means no side distractions or background noises will be tolerated
Submissions are only accepted through the general sign up form on the Talent Nation website. Direct emails will not be considered
Selection jury is made up of a committee of experienced music industry professionals, including: Artist Managers, A&R representatives, Booking Agents, Publicists and Radio Programmers – final decisions can be reversed at any time, without explanation or justification
In order to ensure the quality and preparation of each act, artists who are already part of our [ELITE] talent roster will receive first priority consideration
