Judging Criteria

  • At Invisible Mansion Pictures, we judge most art on the following three questions:

    • What is it trying to accomplish (ideas to generate, feelings to evoke, questions to ask)?​

    • Is it accomplishing what it set out to?  How well?

    • Was it worth saying/doing in the first place?

To Submit

Simply email films@invisiblemansion.com with the following information.

  1. Links or copies of each song submitted.

  2. A paragraph (5-8 sentences long) introducing yourself, explaining why you have chosen to be a musician, and what your future music plans are.

  3. (Optional): 1-2 sentence descriptions of up to 3 (one per song submitted) music video concepts/ideas you may have.  (If you don't have any, no problem!  We will develop the entire project with you from scratch...if you win).

  4. If a band or group, please submit the names of all members (limit one entry per band/group).

Good Luck, and we look forward to your submissions!
