Commonly Asked Questions:
Q: Will my submission guarantee placement?
A: As we've been receiving an overwhelming amount of inquiry we can't guarantee on the placement on which volume the song will be included in. Most importantly the song has to first to make the cut by our evaluation team. We will let you know whether or not it does. We will send you a confirmation email once we get your submission. Unfortunately sending inquiries repeatedly to ask if we got your song or if we will select you song will not get a response. When your song is chosen you will be contacted by our team to take care of all that legal stuff. Just to let you know if your song doesn't make the cut its not a bad thing. It might have not fit into the compilation we are working on.
