The submissions for the East Coast Music Awards and Showcases will open this Thursday, September 3. As in past years, all submissions will be done online via Marcato.
To get ready for the submissions opening, check out the official 2016 Awards & Stages Manual for all rules and regulations concerning the music and industry awards, as well as showcases.
The East Coast Music Awards have made several significant changes to the eligibility criteria as well as the jurying criteria to many of our awards, including introducing a brand-new category: Dance Recording of the Year. All those details can be found at the 2016 East Coast Music Awards & Stages Manual so you don’t miss out.
You do not need to be an ECMA member to submit; however, submission fees are higher for non-members: $40 for each submission. ECMA members in good standing will receive one free submission, with all subsequent submissions being $25 each. If non-members are nominated or chosen for a showcase, they will be required to register as an ECMA member before ECMW 2016. Click here to become an ECMA member.
Deadline to submit will be Thursday, October 1, 2015 at 11:59PM AST. So, start the uploading on Thursday!
