INDIE OF THE YEAR COMPETITION

Music Emissions, an independently run music community website, has just announced its second annual Indie Of The Year competition. The 2008 contest is a chance for unsigned artists to showcase their talent and music in front of major record labels, producers, managers, radio stations, magazines, music supervisors, booking agents, publishers, promoters, publicists, and more.

Indie Of The Year is an opportunity for unsigned indie artists to get their friends, fans, and families behind them to push them to the top. Each artist is allowed one album, EP, or demo to be entered in the contest. Online voting for the competition will end on October 15, 2008, with the winner being announced the following day.

The Grand Prize winner will be playing the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame showcase during the New Music Seminar in Cleveland, Ohio on November 1, which will be streamed to the rest of the world live via JamNow.com. Other sponsors such as IK Multimedia, Underground Squeegee, Jam Now, Tim Huesken, TuneCore, Pandora, and Bear Trap PR will also present the top 20 bands with prizes.

Last year, Ohio’s Amplexus took home the honors, and gained exposure in a variety of ways from the contest. “Participating in the Indie Of The Year contest was an amazing way to get our music out to new people,” said the band. “Everyone at Music Emissions was awesome to work with, and you could tell they cared about the music first and foremost.”
