BEAT100 has introduced a new music video chart system, in which the videos are split into two separate charts; one for original music and another for covers. Both charts run for 14 days, but each chart is compiled on alternating weeks.
Every user is able to upload one video into either the BEAT100 Originals Music Video Chart, or the BEAT100 Covers Music Video Chart. Every video will be in the music video chart for two 14 day periods, and a minimum of 28 days. Your video will not be removed randomly, but will be taken out once you have passed the 28 day period on a day the chart is compiled. User's are able to re-enter a video into the chart but the number of votes will start afresh.
If a video has not received over 20real votes (not including bonus votes), that video will be automatically removed after 20 days to keep the chart fresh and current for viewers. Remember be active and vote for your own video daily.
Users under the age of 13 may enter the music video chart as long as they have a parent or guardian administrating the account on their behalf.
BEAT100 members are able to vote for as many videos as they wish and can vote every 24 hours on the same video should they wish to. BEAT100 requires users to sign up before voting for a video in order to monitor cheating and calculate the votes effectively and accurately.
Once the charts are compiled each week, all of the votes are verified. If a user is found to be cheating, they will immediately be excluded from the current chart competition and will have their account blocked. If two videos end up having the same amount of votes, the outcome of the competition will then boil down to which video gained the most views. The winning videos, once verified, will head onto a section of the BEAT100 ‘Winners page’, where they will be exhibited for all users to check out.
Winning artists will have 30 days to send the required documentation to BEAT100 (a form of ID e.g. Passport, Driving License and a utility bill) and the amount in dollars will be converted to the applicable currency for each winner. An email will be sent out to all BEAT100 members informing them of the winners every 14 days.
Users may use BEAT100's premium promotional packages to promote their music chart videos and gain further exposure. To learn more about these packages, click here.
Duration in Chart:
Both BEAT100 Music Video Chart's run for 14 days (fortnightly) and are compiled alternately every Monday at 12pm (GMT).
Videos remain in the chart until they either win a prize or complete two full 14 day chart periods. This means the minimum time in the charts is 28 days.
When your video exists in the charts it will remain within the video network for others to view.
Only one chart entry per user will be admitted at any one time into the charts. This means you can not have a video in both charts at the same time.
Once your video has finished its time in the chart, you may re-enter the same video as long as you didn’t finish in a prize winning position. However, your votes will be renewed and will not be carried over from your last chart entry.
Only suitable videos may be entered into the BEAT100 Music Video Chart. A suitable video is defined as:
Must contain a music track with an accompanying video.
Must have correct permission
Must not contain scenes of sex, nudity, drugs, violence or other adult only themes.
Must not violate any other conditions set out by these Terms and Conditions or British Law.
Is deemed of suitable quality by an administrator.
Users under the age of 13 may enter the chart but must have a parent or guardian administrating the account on their behalf.
Only one video upload, per user, will be permitted into the chart at any one time. If more than one video enters the charts, the user must choose to remove any additional video uploads so that only one video upload remains in the charts. This rule is set to ensure fairness. However, users can upload multiple videos into the BEAT100 Video Network and move them into the chart at any time as long as it is the sole video in the chart from that user.
BEAT100 Administrators view each chart entry to check the conditions above are met. You may appeal this decision by contacting BEAT100 directly but the BEAT100 administrator will have the final say in this matter.
You may only vote once for each video per day (every 24 hours). Remember be active and vote for your own video daily.
You may only use a single account to vote, duplicate accounts will be automatically deleted and illegitimate votes removed without warning.
You must not spam other users video uploads with your own video links. This will result in any comments and your own video entry being removed from the chart.
Any chart entrant found to be using prohibited methods to increase their votes will have their video removed from the chart and their account suspected or terminated.
Each user may only be awarded a maximum of one prize per chart.
BEAT100 retains the right to modify the chart rules and prize pools without notice.
