Looking for Musical Contests


Are there cool websites to find cool musical contests?

I would prefer:

  • free contests
  • free choice of the daw
  • free choice of the style

I don’t care about prices. My goal is just to find some cool contests to have fun. Something with stems or sample packs. And deadlines around 1 or 2 months. Does it exist?

IDM Forums holds a monthly Beats Battle contest with a theme and provided sample packs. Each winner chooses the next theme and provides the samples for the new contest. It’s free to enter just make an account on the website., DAW choice is free, and the style is free choice so long as it fits the theme of the contest (although the aren’t too strict about this last bit to be honest).


Without any samples though :heart_eyes:


Is this website suitable for musical contests? unsignedonly dot com

I’m not sure https://unsignedonly.com/ is free.
It’s not clear but I think you have to pay $35 each time you submit a track.
If this is it, then it’s not for me.

Not a contest… but somewhat a collab with NASA :ringer_planet: :star: :artificial_satellite:

Thank you very much @Fabrice !
You are right, perhaps it is not really a contest, but it is definitively the kind of things I like.
Easy rules. Easy way to contribute.
Here is the link to the official site: https://www.nasa.gov/lucy-soundscape
