New this year are some rule changes and clarifications, a new (additional) form, and a submission fee. Please be sure to read the submission guidelines carefully - here is the link.
You may submit your entry(s) either online or by hard copy. My advice? When submitting on behalf of my clients, I always print a copy of the form and fill it out by hand, then use that information to submit online. (It's easier to have everything I need at hand in one place, rather than clicking back and forth through the various online pages.) Click here to download and print a hard copy of the submission form.
Here is the link to the online submission form.
There is also a new form required this year: a "Documentation of Release and Commercial Availability". Click here to download and print.
Also new this year is a $10 processing fee for each submission, which may be paid online when you submit your entry, or by enclosing a check or money order payable to the Hawaii Academy of Recording Arts when you submit the copies of your recording(s).
Good luck to all who enter!
