Submit your music for the 2010 Compilation

Deadline! All songs must be uploaded by February 28, 2010. Signed release forms must be received by March 15, 2010.

Note: Can't submit online for some reason? Use the offline submission form.


Submitting your music is easy, just follow these three simple steps:

  1. Fill out the form below with the details about your track and your artist.
  2. Upload an mp3 of your track. Please limit file size to 15 megabytes.
  3. Print, sign, and mail in the release form to complete your submission.

Please note that for legal reasons, your submission is not complete until we have received your signed release giving us permission to use your music. When your submission finishes uploading you will be sent to a page from which you can print out the release. You will receive an email finalizing your submission as soon as we receive your release in the mail.

Caveats and reminders: Only artists currently located in the Portland area will be considered. You must be the sole rights holder to your submission, including any included samples. We cannot accept cover versions of songs. If your music has previously been included on a PDX Pop Now! compilation, your submission must be more recent than your last included track. While we greatly appreciate your generosity in volunteering your music, we offer no payment for compilation inclusion financial or otherwise beyond our never-dying love and appreciation. Only one submission per artist per year, please.

All submissions are reviewed anonymously by a panel of local volunteers and the final tracklist is compiled by the PDX Pop Now! board based on their evalutations. Selected artists will be notified sometime in April.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to get in touch with us: comp@pdxpopnow.com.

Thanks for putting your music up for consideration for inclusion in the 2010 Compilation. PDX Pop Now! couldn't exist without artists like you volunteering their time and music. We appreciate it.
