Applicants may not submit the same musical work to more than one BMI Foundation awards program. The submitted work must not have won any other award or recognition, and must not be under contract with a publisher or record label. Works that use text not written by the applicant must prove either that permission of the copyright holder of the text has been granted, or that the text is in the public domain.
