Unsigned music talent gets chance to sign with top LA producers

The 48Music is offering this awesome prize to entrants of its unique online song writing contest. Creative hopefuls anywhere in the world can send their entry if they have an Internet connection and the talent to come up with a winning song. This unique global contest is entirely online, and digital music files are uploaded to the site. The idea is to eliminate barriers to entry as far as possible, so contestants can focus on the creative process.

Despite that, to fulfil the conditions is a big ask. Wannabe superstar musicians must compose, perform and record an original song in only 48 hours. Add in rehearsing, producing, recording and editing, plus designing the cover art, and contestants should prepare themselves for a demanding and sleepless two days.

Francesco Vitali, Executive Producer and founder of the competition explained, "The 48-hour requirement is a huge challenge, but an unforgettable experience for participants. It’s a thrilling opportunity that could lead to the entrants being one of the lucky top 15 winners who will perform in front of industry professionals on a top music stage in Hollywood."

Mr Vitali has built a reputation as a talent spotter, with a sharp eye for star quality. He added, "In music we trust, not style. We're interested in the song. This is a truly open competition giving access for all musicians in whatever genre. We've removed all the filters, so every entry has an equal chance of winning."

It’s important to follow the rules, which are posted on the site. Contestants are given a song theme to write about, and a Golden Key - a lyric or phrase which they must include. The song must be in English, and between 2 and 4 minutes long, neither over nor under. It’s a good idea to read the rules under relaxed conditions, before pushing the “Start your Competition” button.

In addition to the chance of a Hollywood-dream-come-true for one fortunate contestant, the competition is a wonderful opportunity for any musician to launch a career on a global platform. The top 15 finalists also perform live in Hollywood, in front of the movers and shakers of the music industry. In addition, their winning songs stream live on the 48Music site to a worldwide audience, which displays their work to potential agents and talent scouts globally.

The dream performance is not the only prize. The grand prizewinner walks away with $10,000 in cash and prizes. This winner – soloist, duo, group or ensemble - will be whoever persuades the judges their entry is the best. They will sign a recording deal with a major label in LA, an achievement at the top of every musician’s wish list.

48 Projects Inc. is the company behind this unique music competition. It also runs the 48 Film Project contest for short films, to which the 48-hour rule applies. The producers apply this time restriction to identify the best international artists. Chris Siametis, co- executive producer of the 48 Projects, believes creative minds work better under pressure.

“These is in keeping with our 48 Series philosophy, which demands of artists they pull inspiration from deep within,” Chris says. “It feels scary, but creative minds can exceed their expectations under these conditions. Winners will sign a management contract with a well-known label in Hollywood. We are looking for the crème de la crème, who can succeed in the fiercely competitive entertainment industry.”
