You’ve entered a contest and submitted a killer remix – now what? In order to prevent any confusion, here’s an explanation of how the judging process works and what Voting is all about.
Popular Voting: Exposure is the key for music creators in today’s digital world. The purpose of voting is to help you promote your music and get it heard by a larger audience. For this reason, Indaba Music implemented voting through Facebook. It strengthens the power of the voting process utilizing Facebook credentials. The social media giant currently counts close to a billion users. Voting is akin to a “like” on Facebook: it shows and measures the response by the public and creates awareness of your track. Voting through Facebook maximizes your exposure. It assists in determining the Popular Vote Winner (formerly known as Honorable Mention).
The number of votes for a submission DOES NOT AFFECT the determination of the Grand Prize Winner(s).
Grand Prize Winner: Each opportunity’s Grand Prize Winner is actually chosen by the person or people listed under the “judges” section on the contest page. Every submission gets listened to and the judges choose the submissions that suit their purposes best.
In any case, always consult the Opportunity Terms for each contest you enter, since the rules might be adjusted to the particular opportunity’s demands.
