The winner will receive a series of career-launching prizes, including a £5k marketing budget, music video shoot, recording studio time at Ditto Music’s London studio, a guaranteed live performance slot, a song premiere on a leading UK channel and a track feature with a major artist.

Every artist who enters the Next Big Thing competition will also receive a 90 day free trial to release unlimited music with Ditto.
