Music platform Djooky has launched a global online competition and emerging artists in Asia are being invited to compete for up to $20,000 cash or a recording trip to LA in the international song contest. The competition is open to all artists and songwriters, amateur and professional, in a wide variety of categories.
The Djooky Music Awards, co-founded by multi-platinum US producer Brian Malouf, a producer of Michael Jackson and Madonna, is a global song contest now accepting applications for the Summer 2021 Season. Taking place quarterly, the contest is open to artists and songwriters from all countries of the world. Participation is free.
The winner will receive a $20,000 cash award or a recording trip to the iconic Capitol Records in Los Angeles (artist’s choice). The trip will consist of recording/coaching session at Capitol Studios with Brian, and expenses covered up to $20,000. The first and second runner-ups will receive $5,000 and $2,000 cash awards respectively. 13 genre winners receive $1,000 each, which will be offered to the winners of the weekly charts.
Born during the online era of 2020, The Djooky Music Awards is the world’s first online music contest designed to showcase emerging artists. Its aim is to give power back to the people and create fairer opportunities for musicians who are struggling to break through existing power structures, which have been amplified as a result of the current pandemic. The competition has become the largest international song contest with over 125+ participating nations, over 13,000 musicians and about 150,000 users involved. The awards’ Spring season, which wrapped at the end of May, saw Filipino artist Pablo taking the top prize. The Winter season saw Ulytau from Kazakhstan become the first prize winner.
Recognizing that Asia is brimming with talent and has stood out for its musical creation, this season they’ve shifted their focus onto discovering talent in the Far East. And the Djooky Music Awards are a not-to-be-missed chance for emerging musicians to build a future in the industry.
To motivate musicians in Asia to enter, we've teamed up with Djooky and are giving away a SHURE SM-7B Studio Mic. Head over to our Instagram account, comment on this post, tag two friends and register with Djooky here.
