Contest Eligibility & Exclusions


All entrants must be female. There are no restrictions on age, style or instrumentation.

Grand prize winners of previous Hit Like A Girl contests are not eligible to participate in the contest; however, previous finalists and entrants may participate in this contest.

You must be a qualified amateur to participate in the Contest. A “Qualified Amateur” is defined as one who does not earn more than $50,000 adjusted gross per year as a professional musician, based on the prior tax year and is not a party to any endorsement contract that, in the Sponsor’s sole determination, conflicts with or competes with one of the Contest Entities or Prize Givers. For purposes of clarity, the term “professional musician” does not include teaching music or giving music lessons, and incomes derived from teaching-related activities will not be counted in determination of a contestant’s status.


The Contest is void where prohibited by law. Employees of sponsors and media supporters and each of their affiliated companies, parents, subsidiaries, officers, directors, employees and their immediate families or family members are not eligible to participate in this contest. Any person employed at any time from February 1, 2016 through the conclusion of the Contest will be considered an “Employee.”
