1. Can you still take part if you have previously recorded an album?
The only restriction in the rules is that the soloist or group must be free from any existing record deals or publishing contracts when they register (see Articles 2 and 4). Nothing prevents participants from having entered into contracts in the past, as long as their contractual obligations do not cover the tracks submitted or any performances as part of this contest. Moreover, the winners’ tracks which will be distributed on the digital market must not have been previously distributed on a digital platform, nor available under any capacity for sale online up until when they are uploaded onto Zimbalam, www.zimbalam.it (see Article 5 bis)
