NPR Tiny Desk Contest Extends Deadline For Entries Until April 27

The entry deadline for NPR's 2020 Tiny Desk Contest has been extended to April 27.

Here's what you do:

  • Create a new video that shows you playing one song you've written.
  • Do it the way you'd perform a Tiny Desk concert: at a desk. (Any desk!)
  • Upload your video to YouTube.
  • Fill out our entry form after it opens at 10 a.m. ET on Feb. 11 and before 11:59 p.m. ET on April 27, 2020.

The winner will:

  • Play a Tiny Desk concert at NPR in Washington, D.C.
  • Tour the United States with NPR, supported by State Farm

Keep these things in mind:

  • NPR is looking for undiscovered talent; you can't have a current recording contract.
  • You must be at least 18 years old and live in the U.S. to enter.
  • Our panel of judges — including members of NPR Music, DJs from NPR Member stations and Tiny Desk alums — will choose our winner.
  • Check the Official Rules for all the requirements. Take this quiz to see if you're eligible.
