What are ways to increase my chances of getting selected as the final musician?
READ the brief. Very specific guides are often found in the brief itself. If you are unclear, feel free to message the client for better clarification. The sound quality and amount of time you indicate to produce the music piece will be important factors. Your profile page plays a part too! Past music pieces that you upload on your profile page are indications of your music quality.

Is this similar to participating in a music-composing competition?
We see this as a platform in support towards musician development. Music is something very subjective to individuals' ears. This is an opportunity to put your talent across in expressing music through original works by you.

Copyright of the song is owned by you and the amount pledged is a form of remuneration in support towards your effort in producing the music piece. Should the Music Requester requires the copyrights, it will be an additional premium paid to you and it will be clearly stated that copyrights is needed. However, this rarely happens.
