We've come to that time of year again, humans. The 2016 HW! Demo Contest is now underway! At this point, the contest has become something of a tradition. With a growing list of past winners who are going on to make great strides in the industry, we are as excited as ever to find out who this year's contest will uncover.

Since this is the fifth annual contest, we had to up the ante. Sooo... we've added bigger prizes, a new submission category, and again partnered with Joseph McMahon to offer a music video prize. As in previous years, bands are asked to submit one unreleased original song. Vocalists, however, are also invited to submit an original song or cover that highlights their vocal talent and artistry. If you're looking for some inspiration, be sure to listen to some of our past winners below!

The deadline for entries is midnight of February 14th, 2016. 

Check out the details and submit your demo here! 

May the best humans win!
