What is R-U-IT?
Are you an unsigned artist between the ages of 13 – 17 (not signed to a label/record company)? If so, R-U-IT is the perfect opportunity for you. R-U-IT levels the playing field for artists like you because it excludes entries from anyone who is signed to a label record deal, so you are not competing with well-known artists, or artists with a label behind them. This is why the competition is called R-U-IT.
R-U-IT is designed for solo artists, bands, and singers who are looking for exposure, recognition, and a chance to be noticed by industry professionals. The goal of R-U-IT is to find an outstanding, talented performer: a band, singer, or solo artist...a newcomer...raw or polished - the “gem” that needs to be discovered.
R-U-IT is a fresh and novel approach to music competitions. Yes, it offers a great prize, recognition, exposure, and the chance to be heard by a panel of industry judges. But, R-U-IT also takes it a step further and puts the Grand Prize winner in direct, personal contact with a label executive who is the ultimate decision-maker to help you or offer you a recording contract.
This music competition offers the second place winner the opportunity to be mentored by a staff member of a record company and more. This a chance to directly network with a industry professionals to get guidance, advice, feedback, to prepare your for future advancement in your career.
R-U-IT offers this opportunity for any 12-17-year-old wanting to enter and is accepting all genres of music performance.
The Grand Prize Winner will be awarded a non-exclusive single artist development package which includes recording a single with a reputable producer, along with a full experience package. Second Place winners will also be awarded prizes.
Winners for the R-U-IT, 2017 competition will be announced in mid June, 2017.
