We’re extremely excited to announce the results for our Win Music Videos promotion.
With nearly 1,700 songs submitted, our team had to knuckle down for some solid listening sessions and evaluate each and every song on it’s own merit. The quality of music submitted was simply amazing which made the job really tough for us. After much deliberation we’re very pleased to announced the winners and runners up!
Winner: RawDeal – Make Your
We’re very excited to launch a Video Project for the first winner, charismatic South London hip-hop artist RawDeal. You now have the opportunity to make the official music video for his fantastic song Make Your Mind Up, from his latest album The Depth Of My Heart!
We loved the energy of this song. It’s a fun 60s northern-soul inspired party track that should inspire some very creative videos! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
Submission deadline: 18 December
Total Payments: $5,000 as funded by Genero
