Salute Music Makers Removes Entry Fee For All Contestants of Revolutionary Music Competition Platform

Salute Music Makers, the revolutionary songwriter’s competition platform which launched in April amid great media interest, has now taken the unprecedented step of giving back the entry fee of £20 per track to all those who have entered to date.

Additionally, they have made the process totally free for up to four tracks to be entered thanks to the huge impact the initiative has had on the partnerships they have so rapidly developed with the likes of GRM Daily, Unsigned Music Awards, UNILAD and many more.

This step to hand back money to thousands of songwriters is clearly a very rare occurrence with any enterprise, but once again highlights the importance of the songwriter to the Salute ethos.

As legendary artist and music industry expert Feargal Sharkey, who is spearheading  Salute Music Makers explains –

‘The level of support and encouragement we have received from the industry since launching our competition has been truly extraordinary. Thanks to the support of our partners, Salute is now in the enviable position to make entry absolutely, 100%, free. Yet again Salute is leading the way in providing proper support and encouragement for the next generation of great British talent. Now is your chance to win a £50,000, no strings attached cash prize and entry is free. One small challenge: just write the best song anyone has ever heard!’

One of the most important aspects of the whole initiative was the ambition of Salute to make their entry free within the second year, but thanks to the huge impact it has had from business partnerships, this dream has been realised within a matter of weeks since its launch. Since contestants began to upload their music, the Salute brand has grown more rapidly than anyone could have hoped. Salute have been emotionally humbled by the response from budding music makers and hence made the decision that giving back had to be the next step, and subsequently have now opened the competition to an even broader audience in their pursuit to find the next best UK grassroots music artist.
