My music doesn’t have an ISWC or ISRC code, can I still enter it?

Yes. Recordings that have an ISRC and ISWC will automatically go through to judging (if they fulfil all other criteria).

We expect commercial recordings to have been assigned with both codes so the income generated by the musical work and recording is tracked and distributed correctly. The awards recognise songs and albums commercially released in the previous calendar year and as such there is an expectation they have been registered correctly at the relevant royalty collection society.

Recordings entered for the awards that do not have an ISRC and ISWC will need to provide evidence that the process for obtaining an ISRC and ISWC has commenced.
