YouTube Hosts Indie Band Contest

Published: 2006-10-04
YouTube has a contest up for American indie bands looking for a bit more than "some exposure". They're on a quest to find hidden talent, and want to hear from your band if you think you have the right stuff. "Submitting videos that best represent the group's musical, lyrical and video-making skills" is the name of the game, and there will be four Grand Prize winners who receive:

-Round trip airfare and lodging in NYC from Nov 28-30, 2006

-ABC's Good Morning America will unveil the four winning bands in a live broadcast in November

-New equipment for each winning band provided by Gibson Guitar and Epiphone, and use of the Gibson Guitar exclusive

-Chance to perform live in NYC

-Winning video may be featured on mobile phones via Cingular Video

-Chance to have their song featured in a major film or TV show by Chop Shop Music Supervision

If you're a Soul Shine reader from the US and know an indie band who'd be great for this, let them know. Band members must be 18 years of age or older, video submission ends this October 18, and voting ends November 16
