With just FOUR DAYS left to enter, brace yourself for another major Future8 prize announcement! We are very pleased to announce that NOW Music, the biggest selling compilation series, has partnered with The Future8 Awards to exclusively sponsor our Music Category – aimed at aspiring musicians, singers and producers aged 7-17.


What makes NOW Music the perfect sponsors for The Future8 Awards Music category?

Now That’s What I Call Music is the biggest selling compilation series…ever! The first NOW album boasted 11 number one singles and was a collection of thirty tracks from that year, released on double vinyl LP and cassette. The repertoire was entirely original and unlike some of it’s competitors, none of the music was edited to fit the running time – hence the need to spread the album over two discs. This original idea became a phenomenon, making NOW Music the perfect partner to recognize and reward young people creating music in the digital era.


What awesome prize will NOW Music offer the winner?  

The winner of The Future8 NOW Music Award will win a recording session at professional recording studio RedLight London, to include three hours of recording and two hours of mastering so they can experience what its like to be behind the mic!


Alex McCloy, Head of Digital at NOW Music, joins our illustrious line-up of  judges to provide this prize. We asked him how he feels about sponsoring the awards:

“We are delighted to be sponsoring The Future8 Music Category in order to help recognise and reward emerging new talent. The level of creativity young musicians, songwriters and producers display by utilising the technology and channels available today to broadcast their music is inspiring. Hopefully we will discover stars of the future.”

Inspired to enter the Music category and win this once-in-a-lifetime experience with a top recording studio? Just head to to enter – submit the track you are most proud of, with plenty of information about yourself and why you should be one of our Future8!
