  • We care about keeping the platform fair for all artists on Quadio. That means any artists found to be participating in Summer Collab Challenge unfairly will be disqualified from the contest.

  • You can only submit one collab track for the competition. If another user submits a different track on which you were a collaborator, you'll be considered for that song too.

  • Winnings will be awarded per song. It is up to the group to determine how to split the winnings.

  • In the presence of a tie, winners will be decided by a secondary engagement metric.
