The 2018 Tiny Desk Contest is now open! Starting today, you can submit your video via the entry form on our website. We'll be accepting entries through March 25 at 11:59pm EST.

When you're ready to enter, you'll need to:

  • Film a video of you (or your band) performing an original song in front of a desk (any desk).
  • Upload that video to YouTube.
  • Submit that YouTube video via our entry form.

If you win, you'll play your very own Tiny Desk concert at NPR's headquarters in Washington, D.C. After that, you'll come on a nationwide tour with NPR Music and Lagunitas Brewing Company.
If you want to make sure your entry is eligible, you can take this quiz (or check out our Official Rules). We also recommend you bookmark the Tiny Desk Contest FAQ page for some quick and easy answers to the most common questions.
