OpenMusicContest: submit your entry by July 15th!

Michelle Thorne, June 25th, 2008

The doors are now open for submissions to the fourth OpenMusicContest (OMC), one of the largest live concerts for CC-licensed music. Participants may submit tracks of any musical genre by July 15, 2008. Stylistic diversity is desired, and all entries must be licensed under one of the six Creative Commons licenses.

The organizers of the event, the AStA student organization from Philipps University in Marburg, explain that the OMC offers an attractive prize for its participants: artists score a large performance alongside a noteworthy headliner plus space on a sampler featuring the best tracks of the contest. A gratis promotional CD will also be published in the magazine LinuxUser.

The OMC concert will take place in Marburg, Germany on October 17, 2008.

    unfortunately, we can’t afford to fly in bands from other countries. that is, as of now the omc is limited to submissions from germany, sorry :-(

    we have some years of experience in this, so if you’d like to start your own open music contest in your country, don’t hesitate to contact us! we’d love to see this concept spread and share what we’ve learned so far.

    probably a good point to start:
