Music Nation video contest begins Thursday


Artist development company Music Nation on Thursday will launch its online music video competition, which invites musicians and bands to submit videos for the chance to win a recording contract with Epic Records. Music in the categories of rock, pop and other urban genres can be entered at, with submissions requiring a $25 fee beginning Jan. 1. Participants must be 13 or older. Through an agreement with Clear Channel Radio, local disc jockeys will drive artist participation through weekly webisodes and on-air support.
