Paying the Piper

Any designer, design business, creative agency, in-house design team or end user/client company can enter the Music Design Awards. The design project entered and the supporting submission paper can be for any music market.

Entry fees

To enter the Music Design Awards you will need to pay an entry fee for each entry you make. These have been held at the reduced fee for each entry of just GBP £60.00 including UK value added tax. You will need to pay for your entries, online, at the time of entry. When you click SUBMIT you will be taken to the PayPal payment page. Student entries will continue to be free of charge, provided the entry criteria are met.

What does the entry fee cover?

The entry fee is an administration fee covering the personnel costs involved in checking entries and their bona fides, collating all entries and bookmarking them for ease of access by the judges, convening the judging panels, supervising the judging events, including providing the venue and covering all catering costs, compiling the short-list and publicising the finalists on the Music Design Awards website, through PR broadcasts and on the online or offline pages of media partner publications. An individual, practice or company may enter as many categories and projects as they have divisions, brands or clients. Every entry will incur a fee, except Student entries.
