Get your Music Video Seen

 

 

 

 "How do I get my video seen" is one of the first questions we are asked from bands wishing to know how to go about getting their videos played and seen by others.
Below I have included links and outlined some of the different options available to answer this question.

Things will come and go but I shall try to keep this updated. If you know of anything I may have missed please send me a message to let me know.

 

Firstly the most important thing you can do as an artist is signup to apra-amcos & upload your music to songcast.

Broadcast

 

r a g e - ABC

http://www.abc.net.au/rage/
     
So you’ve got an awesome clip and you want to get it played on rage...fantastic...rage loves new clips!!!
Before sending us your clip, make sure that you’ve ticked off everything on our checklist!
rage receives a massive amount of new music videos every week so if your clip is going to be played, it may take several weeks. You will NOT be contacted by rage to let you know if your clip is going to be played. The only way to find out if your clip is going to be played is by checking the rage playlists, published every Friday on the rage website.
Overseas artists please note that the digital betacam should be in PAL format not NTSC.
LASTLY It’s also very important to note that rage being part of the ABC strictly abides by its Editorial Policies.
It is very clear that rage is unable to broadcast music videos that have repeated and prominent references to commercial organisations or products. THIS INCLUDES YOUR WEBSITE, FACEBOOK AND MYSPACE ADDRESSES! For more information on the ABC Editorial Policies click here.
By submitting your video you confirm that you own all copyright in the video, or have all the necessary licenses to allow the ABC to broadcast it in perpetuity and archive It in our library.
