ZenToy – Finalist ISC 2015
ZenToy’s song Zero Download in the “EDM (Electronic Dance Music)” category has been selected as a finalist by the ISC 2015 listening committee. With over 18,500 entrants, less than 2% of all entrants have been selected as finalists. This is quite an achievement!
All ISC 2015 finalists’ songs have been sent to the ISC celebrity judges who will select the winners, to be announced in late April or early May as soon as the results are in.
You can also support Zero Download with a daily vote! All finalists (except for Lyrics Only songs which do not require recorded music as part of the entry) are also included in the People’s Voice – an online voting contest that allows the public to listen to all the finalists’ songs and vote for their favorite one. People’s Voice is separate from, and in addition to, the winners selected by ISC’s judges. The song receiving the most votes will be crowned the People’s Voice winner.
Voting will take place from now until April 15: http://www.radioairplay.com/competition_votes/EDM%20(Electronic%20Dance%20Music)
Thank you for your support!
