– The song should contain verses and chorus with a high recognition value.

– The grant must be delivered as mp3 (no larger than 10 MBs).

– All contestants will also be able to answer a few questions about who they are, how their thoughts have been around the song and its creation as well as providing a photo. This will be published in our various communication channels if the grant is selected to go on to the final.

– It is alright to submit multiple contributions provided that only one song is submitted with every contest form.

– To compete, the song may not be published or available on YouTube, SoundCloud, Spotify or similar streaming services.

– The Anniversary Organization/Gothenburg & Co shall pay for the recording of the song and shall thus own the master itself.
