This month we’re looking for cartoon music, music from the Tamil region of India, arpeggios and political campaign themes.
Once you’ve completed your work, a unique code can be applied to each track – just add the code (provided in each brief) to your keyword tags when you upload. As a result, we’ll know which genre you’ve been focusing on.
