Last month, we got a Sneak Peek of a new QuaverMusic.com feature – Contests!

Now, Quaver Website Coordination Manager Jeremy Ruff is back to show us how to dig in!

Take it away, Jeremy!

We hope you’ve been enjoying the brand new contests on QuaverMusic.com! I know I’ve been enjoying listening to all the contest winners.  What a creative bunch of people we have on our site!  You should all be proud of yourselves!

Let’s explore a few elements of Contests you’ll want to check out right away:


Every time you win a contest, you earn points.  The number of points you earn depends upon what level of contest you entered.  The more people you compete against, the more points you earn for winning!  Every song accumulates its own points, so it’s possible for Song A to have 300 points and Song B to have only 50 points.

The more points a song has, the more contests it has won.  Remember – you can keep entering the same song into contests over and over and continue to earn more and more points!

So if at first you don’t succeed, try and try again!

Record Awards:

What good are points unless they get you something?  If your song wins enough contests and enough points, you can earn record awards to display in your music room!

To check on your progress toward an award:

  • Click the Contest Tab
  • Click on the Stats Icon in the bottom menu
  • Click on a song in the list.

You’ll see detailed information about how many points the song has earned and how far it has to go before it earns a record.  You can earn three levels of record awards: Gold, Platinum, and Diamond!  Do you have what it takes to make a song go diamond?

Contest Results:

The Results tab is a great place to go to see all the contests you have won, but did you know that you can also see the contests that just finished, even if you didn’t enter?

Try this:

  • Click the Contest Tab
  • Click on the Results tab in the bottom menu
  • Choose “All Contest” in the drop-down filter at the top left
  • Choose a contest and listen to the winner!

Do you agree with the chosen winner?  If not, then the best thing to do is rate some contests yourself!  That’s right, all contests are judged by Quaver users, so you get to say who becomes the next Concert King or Queen!


So brush up on your songwriting skills and earn that gold record!  Or, rate some contests and decide who the next winner will be!  In Quaver Contests, the choice is up to you!
