$30 (£19.83) just to submit a 'proposal'? Some proposal. It's essentially a basic read-out of information every band worth their salt ought to have anyway.
"Please note that WOMEX is not in the position to cover any fees, travel expenses or other costs. What we do provide is the stage, the necessary equipment to perform, local transport to and from the airport and the venue, and our extensive promotional treatment on equal basis with all other WOMEX Showcase artists. That includes promotion of the show itself, newsletters, online features, publication with full bios and contact details in our WOMEX Guide, and much more. Plus, all invited artists will get free full access to all features of WOMEX plus one free registration for our partner of agreement (the artist representative).
Strange, this. The majority of acts already booked for this, will have been done so by their agents; acts who will be getting paid. In other words, if you pay your $30 and perhaps get selected, even then you're going to wind up out of pocket, your dignity trailing between your legs.
Fools need only apply.
