Spinnup is proud to give you the chance to participate in Spinnup Next (“Competition”).
You can only submit one track and multiple submissions will not be considered – so make sure you only submit your best one to the competition. Entrants who submit more than one track will be disqualified from the competition. Entering a new track can take up to 3 days for that track to be “approved” by Spinnup’s systems- please allow enough time before the Entry Period deadline to upload and enter a new track.
Full competition details below. By submitting an entry to Spinnup Next, you are agreeing to be bound by these terms and conditions.
