How to Submit Your RPM Album
The deadline to submit your album is March 1.
There are so many ways to submit your music in NL this year, but don't be confused. You just need to choose one.
SUBMIT ANY TIME AT THE DROP OFF BOX IN ST. JOHN'S
There is a drop off box inside Rocket Bakery & Fresh Foods, 272 Water Streetin St. John’s. See the bottom of this email for a photo! If you want to submit early this is here for you now. Your last chance to submit your album here will be Thursday, March 1 at 6pm — that's when we'll be opening the box up!
SEND IT SNAIL MAIL
Participants can also mail their CDs to NL RPM Challenge, PO Box 1044, Stn. C, St. John’s, NL, A1C 5M3, postmarked by or before March 1.
SUBMIT IT ONLINE
You can upload mp3s to the international RPM Challenge site at www.rpmchallenge.com again this year! Just sign in and upload them to your profile. Select "Your Profile" and scroll down to the music player and hit the green upload button to upload track by track. Once you do that, be sure to complete the 2017 Album Information section of your account.
UPLOAD IT STRAIGHT TO THE UNPOSSIBLE NL DROPBOX
If any of the above are too far away or confusing, this link will allow you to upload your mp3 files direct to Elling Lien's Dropbox account! https://www.dropbox.com/request/wELd3RS5ZVdhC3MaPs3H
EMAIL A FREE BANDCAMP LINK
Another dead-simple option: Upload your album to Bandcamp and then send me a link on or before March 1! But PLEASE make sure it has a free download option! Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
NL Listening Party & Online Broadcasts
We'll have more details soon, but this year we're gonna kickstart the Newfoundland and Labrador listening party at the Rocket Room in St. John's on Saturday, March 3 from 8-11. Once that's done in order to listen to a selection from each album we'll move the listening party online as a series of livestreamed podcasts, streamed nightly on Facebook Live.
