Hello! Quick little update/announcement. For all your submissions, you are now only allowed to submit your release into ONE genre.

 

What this means is that you can't submit one album into both Pop and Dance/Electronic or R&B. You have to choose ONE! Same goes for singles.

 

Different songs/albums can still be nominated in different categories though. But one singular release (be it an album or single) can only be nominated in ONE genre subcategory.

@Chapman @Harry Styles @Hector @Edu @Love So Soft

@Beauty Queen @ryjapo @Robert. @RebelHeart15 @Jon. 

@Harry_CAL @Eglė @tigerlily13 @Lucky17

   @Royalty @Cosmic  @Kuba @Maria @Bleachella

@8Bit Heart @jaxswim @Frontline @Poker  @Surrealism @Alesus

    @BlueBalls @Worldwide Angel @Roller Skates @Michael. @Lukros @Quill @joebiekong

 

@hector please amend your submissions to fit this rule!
