Starting as a Los Angeles emerging artist award showcase in 2003, BEAT has grown to a national, continental, and now worldwide competition. Prizes for grand champions and the BEAT champion include over $10,000 in musical gear, merchandise, and services. A range of A&R label executives for possible signing, single release, or placement in a compilation will review the winning songs. The 2006 BEAT Champion will receive press, features, and showcases in a range of publications.
