The 23 best songs will be professionally produced in the studio for the EINE WELT album. With coaching sessions and workshops at the Kreuzberger Musikalische Aktion e.V. organisation in Berlin, you can also learn everything you need to know about making your music and the topics that inspire you stand out.
After the official closing date for entries, all published songs can be accessed on the website for user voting purposes. Users can vote for their favourite songs for a period of three weeks. The song with the most votes wins the public's prize! In an internal selection process, 30 winning songs will be determined by a preliminary jury. From these 30 winning songs, an independent main jury (experts from the education, film and/or music fields) will then select the EINE WELT song and determine the 2nd to 30th places as well as the three special prizes.
