2017 GUIDE TO TOP COMPETITIONS

Global Music Awards
ABOUT THIS COMPETITION
Global Music Awards is a well-known international showcase for original music, unique voices and emerging artists. It has a large international following.
Entries go through a multi-layered judging process including listener impact, technical quality, uniqueness and styling. All first-level judging is conducted by Global Music's in-house professionals. All the entries recommended for Gold, Silver, and Bronze Medals are carefully screened by Global Music Awards Founder and CEO, Thomas Baker, Ph.D., who has more than a dozen years in film and music, having produced an award-winning television series in cooperation with the University of California and created the Accolade Competition, Indie Fest and the Best Shorts Competition. Entries judged to be potential Gold Medal winners may be sent to outside judges for additional review.
Global Music Awards maintains consistency across judging categories and keeps high standards in our music talent competition. The judging process is strictly merit based and does not consider size of fan base, popularity or record sales.

ELIGIBILITY
Open to all artists and composers. Submissions may be of any genre, any length. We look for artists and composers with outstanding emotional communication, the ability to transcend, to make the listener experience something that is new and compelling. We want to be surprised and moved by what we hear. We want to be convinced that those we honor can really move an audience. The musical joy of artists we select must be infectious. We want the artist to remind us why we care about music so much in the first place.
