To enter this Beat Battle you need to be a student and be able to prove it if you are chosen as one of the three finalists.

Your Instagram profile needs to be public for us to be able to see your post. Only entries using #tracklibcollegebeatbattle with at least two friends tagged and profiles following TracklibElectronic Music Collective, the University Of Illinois Music, and Florida A&M University.

Your music is still yours. We do not own any of the entries to this competition and will not use them for any other advertising purposes. We will, however, repost your tracks to promote the competition itself.

The first prize will be awarded a full sample license to monetize their work for free. The winner will, however, still have to pay the original rights holders their share (5, 10 or 20% depending on sample time) of any eventual revenue earned on the new song.

No purchase is necessary to participate, but the samples need to be downloaded using a personal account on Tracklib. The prize is as stated and no cash or other alternatives will be offered. The prizes are not transferable and will be added to the winner’s Tracklib account.
