Tiny Desk Contest

NPR's 2019 Tiny Desk Contest Open for Submission

NPR's Tiny Desk Contest is back for 2019! And for the first time ever, the contest will be open to artists 18 years and older.

Here's how to enter:

  • Film a video of you or your band performing an original song at a desk. Any desk will do.
  • Upload your video to YouTube.
  • Submit your video via the entry form on our website.
  • That's it! Entries will be accepted now through April 14 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

The contest winner will come to NPR headquarters to play their very own Tiny Desk concert, and then come on tour with NPR Music with support from our sponsor, Blue Microphones.
