    1. Label will spend money to promote the winning remix. Even if there were royalties, they would be compensated by marketing expenses. I doubt it could receive any money, unless it become a worldwide hit.

  1. “We will also take into consideration the popularity reached on the web by your remix”

    Will this be a popularity contest or will every remix get an equal shot at winning?

    People entering later or just starting out as an artist are really at a disadvantage if it’s the first.

    1. Hello, every remix has an equal shot at winning. Popularity on the web is something “extra”, and with popularity we basically mean a remix with thousands of views on youtube , blog covering and such. In this case, that remix will be a finalist, but it’s not automatic that it will win. Anyway, it’s been a few years now that I don’t see any remix submitted reaching such popularity BEFORE official release. Some have reached great popularity but only after release and dedicated promo.

        1. For free download, wait first that finalist list is announced (by mid April). If you are not in the list, you can put it as free download everywhere.
          Yes, you can do a youtube video.

  2. so sad just see your remix tonight 30/03 .. no time to make it before 01/04..
