  • What obligations do I have to VOTW?

    You are responsible for the accuracy of the information about you.  This information should be all true and accurate.  In your interest you also declare yourself ready for possible interviews and concert dates for negotiated fee.  In the case that you are one of the winners and / or finalists, you will be under contract with MIRIO Entertainment GmbH for the winning composition.

  • What happens with my song?

    You can upload your composition to the VOICE OF THE WORLD platform even if it is already available on other portals (like YouTube, Vimeo, or MySpace).  If your song is chosen as the winner the marketing rights of your composition will belong to us.  However the song will always remain your song, so that you are always involved in all income and revenues.  We will not sell your song to third-parties without your express approval.

  • May my song be already published?

    Yes! Your participation with VOTW is allowed if your song is already published, however it must be free of third-party rights.  Because we take over the distribution of the winner's song, you may not be bound in this respect.

  • How do I record and edit my music?

    If you record a live video with your Smartphone or a video camera, the sound can be turned on so that the song is immediately recorded -- or you can record the music separately and synchronize it with the video.  There are various options for post-production music synchronization.  Depending on the type of music you are recording, it can be sufficient simply to use the built-in microphone in your computer.  Otherwise, you can use an external microphone or even a mixer with multiple microphones.  Depending on the operating system on your computer, there is also plenty of professional-quality, user-friendly recording software readily available to everyone.  Recording software ranges from paid professional software bundles to freeware and open source solutions which give the user pro-ready tools free of charge. You can find an overview of some of the available software here -> Music Software.
