The CHILLFILTR song contest will reopen in January.
We are here to help musical artists connect with an audience. We do that by writing blog features and curating playlists on Spotify.
There are now two stages. Please read the instructions carefully if you are interested in participating.
First, every submission will be added to a contest page, and there will be a voting round. After that is finished, the top finishers from round 1 will be added to the 'Fresh Finds' playlist on CHILLFILTR Radio. For an hour every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (at 12pm PST) votes can be cast for round 2 artists by clicking the 'thumbs up' while their song is playing. Play times will be at random, but each track will be played at least once during that hour.
Downvotes will not be counted. At the end of the month, at least one winner will be selected, and they will receive more airplay, a playlist spot on Spotify and Apple Music, along with a winner's page like this one.
There are two main reasons for the new rules: 1, it will encourage contestants and fans to listen to the rest of the entries; and 2, it will allow artists with fewer fans to still have a chance to win. You might only need a handful of claps to get to stage 2, and the votes that you get in stage 2 will carry more weight. The contest is designed so that an artist with a smaller number of dedicated fans can still be very competitive against artists with a larger following.
As always, there is no fee to enter, but you will (eventually) need to sign up for a free account to access the submission form.
