Fan Label™ Prize-Based Contests

Official Rules


Contest Overview: The Fan Label™ App includes multiple independent Contests each week where persons can create their own fantasy record “Label”, select songs from a Fan Label Chart for their Label, and earn points called Royalties in competition with other players. Each Contest is focused on a different musical genre.  Your objective is to select songs within the Fan Label Chart that you believe will move up the Fan Label Chart, as these songs will earn you points called “Royalties”.  Songs move up the Fan Label Chart when other players pick them to be part of their Label, when the songs are shared, and when other players listen to the songs in Fan Label or explore the songs in iTunes, Apple Music or Google Play by clicking on those options within the App. The operation of each Contest – how to play, how winners are determined and the prizes offered – is the same. 

  1. Eligibility: The Fan Label Prize-Based Contests (the “Contest”) is open only to legal residents of the fifty (50) United States and the District of Columbia who are at least seventeen (17) years old at the time of entry. Employees of Fan Label, LLC, its promotion partners, HelloWorld, Inc., and any of their parent and affiliate companies as well as the immediate family (spouse, parents, siblings and children) and household members of each such employee are not eligible. The Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited.

How to Play:

Your objective is to select songs for your Label from the Fan Label Charts that you believe will earn the most Fan Label royalties (“Royalties”).  The Players with the most Royalties will have the best ranking and will win the Contest.

During each “Day” (defined as 6:00 a.m. ET and ending the following calendar day at 3 a.m. ET) of the Contest Period, take the following actions:

  • Select any four (4) songs from the Fan Label chart (identified as “Chart” in the App).
  • Select one (1) New Release song (identified as “Breaking” in the App).
  • Press the “Lock your Songs” button to confirm your song selections (“Your Picks”). Once locked, you will not be able to make any changes to your Label for that Day.
  • When you lock your songs for any Day, you are then activated as a participant.

Each Day, you may keep the same songs as Your Picks or you may change the songs you include in Your Picks. Once you have locked songs for any Day, thereafter, if you do not Lock Your Picks manually, Your Picks from the previous Day will automatically be Locked at the end of the current Day. Manually Locking Your Picks every Day improves your ability to earn Royalties. However, you need only Lock Your Picks on a single Day to be eligible to win a prize.

Promote Your Label:  Share Your Picks or any individual songs included in the Fan Label Charts to improve your Contest Ranking.

  • Promote Your Picks

You earn bonus Royalties the first three (3) times that you press the Promote Your Songs button and complete a sharing action in any Day. When you press the Promote Your Songs button, a list of social apps available on your device appears, as well as your device’s text messaging and emailing services, each of which qualify to earn bonus Royalties.  If you share by text or email, you may only share with friends with whom you have an existing relationship. NOTE:  Wireless carrier Message and Data rates apply when sharing by text message.

  • Share a Song

You may press the Share icon anywhere in the Contest to share songs. Sharing may create awareness of the Contest, which can ultimately affect Song Position and Song Movement as described below. Sharing an individual song will not directly generate bonus Royalties for you.

How to Earn Royalties:

Your objective is to choose songs in the Contest that earn you the most Royalties and to try to reach the top of the applicable Contest leaderboard by amassing the highest overall Royalty total.

You earn Royalties each Day for two primary dynamics related to Your Picks. These include:

  • Song Movement on the Fan Label Charts

You earn Royalties when songs included in Your Picks move up the chart between the time you lock Your Picks and the end of that Day. Royalties are deducted when songs included in Your Picks move down the chart between the time you lock Your Picks and the end of that Day. The upward and downward movement of songs on the Fan Label chart is based on a combination of the following factors:

  • Total number of audio previews of a song within the App by all players competing in the Contest
  • Total number of players competing in the Contest that include the song within their locked picks for the Day
  • Total number of song explorations by players through the iTunes, Apple Music, and/or Google Play buttons located within the App.
  • Song Position on the Fan Label Charts
    You earn Royalties based on the ending position of each song included in Your Picks on the Fan Label Chart. The higher the song’s ending position each Day on the chart, the more Royalties you earn.

Royalties will be added to your Label, and your Contest ranking will be updated after the conclusion of each Day based on the number of Royalties earned throughout that Day.

  1. Winner Determination: After the conclusion of the entire Contest Period, winners will be determined based on the total number of Royalties earned. There will be one (1) Grand Prize winner: the player whose Label has earned the highest number of Royalties during the Contest Period. There will be up to ten (10) First Prize winners, comprised of the players whose Labels earned the next highest number of Royalties during the Contest Period. To the extent that there is a tie amongst Labels, the player who Locked their Picks earliest on the final Day will be deemed the applicable winner and will be notified accordingly.

In the event of a dispute as to any Submission, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register will be deemed to be the player and must comply with these Official Rules. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Each player may be required to show proof of being an authorized account holder.

  1. Winner Requirements: Potential winners will be notified by email to the email address used to register. The potential Grand Prize winner will be notified on the Friday after the conclusion of a Monday thru Friday Contest cycle. The Runner Up winners will be notified once the Grand Prize winner is confirmed. If a potential winner cannot be contacted, does not comply with these Official Rules, or prize is returned as undeliverable, the potential winner forfeits the prize. If a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, the prize may be awarded to a runner-up, if any, in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Only three (3) alternate winners may be determined, after which the applicable prize will remain unawarded. Each winner will indemnify Sponsor, Released Parties (as defined in Section 9, below) and any licensee of Sponsor against all claims, damages, liabilities, and expenses (including reasonable counsel fees and legal expenses) arising out of any breach of these terms.
