Nashville, TN (PRWEB) May 19, 2010
MusikPitch seems to have found a niche in the songwriting business by providing a platform where songwriters and composers compete to win jingle contests. MusikPitch allows any company looking for jingle songs or branding music to run a contest. The process of launching a contest is simple. Companies describe the type of jingle they need, decide on the prize amount, then sit back and listen as the songs are sent in from songwriters around the world. A recent success story was from a Nashville based restaurant called The Local Taco.
The Local Taco used MusikPitch to launch a $1000.00 jingle contest. The contest ran for 14 days, as is the standard length, where The Local Taco received over 60 entries from songwriters competing to win. We asked The Local Taco owner, John Ko about his experience in using MusikPitch:
"I was amazed by the quality of music coming in as entries for our contest. Songs were being submitted from songwriters all over the world. We had people living in Florida that had been to our restaurant on a trip to Nashville and were messaging us about how excited they were to compete to write our jingle. It was amazing!"
After the contest ended, John had trouble picking from all the top entries received. He turned the decision over to his friends and staff to help choose the winner. As anyone can hear the music being submitted on MusikPitch, all one has to do is share the contest link with others to help with the winning song selection. Even if a songwriter doesn't win, scoring a high ranking from the contest holder will place their composition in their top songs list. Songwriters are then listed under the Songwriters tab with those having the most wins and top songs placed at the top of the list.
After a long and difficult decision, The Local Taco chose entry #32 as their winner, a song composed by MusikPitch member and songwriter James Barratt. Think they made the right decision?
