DIY, indie bands are always looking for ways to gain exposure–either through social media or through something like this contest. The winners of Flavorpill’s A Band Apart contest get some great prizes, such as:
–The change to headline an exclusive Flavorpill showcase in the fall
–Exposure in a press release to fans and tastemakers around the country
–An exclusive feature on Flavorwire
–A track included in one local mixtape and one national mixtape

Beyond this, the promotion to the hundreds of thousands of followers and readers of the Flavorpill online community is indespensible to a band trying to make it. For the regional round, bands need to get enough votes to make it to the Top 10 in the national round.

The entry requirements of the contest are not extensive. They request a Facebook Fan Page, a photo and a track. They do require that you be a FanBridge client, but that’s not surprising for a competition of this size. An account is free, and they do offer some great services, so you should check it out anyway.

Will you be entering your band in the A Band Apart competition?
