When you submit a track on a Wanted Listing for a placement opportunity, it goes into a queue to be reviewed by one of our music specialists. The process from submission to completion can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months, depending on the type of opportunity.
Typically, your track will progress fairly quickly through the first stages while it is being Reviewed, Shortlisted, and hopefully chosen for Final Selection. If your track is chosen for Final Selection, this means it has been forwarded to the client e.g. director, producer or music supervisor for their review and subsequent acceptance or decline. All those in the Final Selection group are notified when the client forwards their final decision to us, regardless of whether the track has been successful or otherwise.
As far as the Deals Board goes, the review process is different and generally lengthier due to the longer submission window and much greater volume of tracks required to be reviewed. It can take up to 3 months depending on the client's needs, their review time and delivery protocols required. Regardless, if you have submitted for a Deal, you will be notified of the eventual outcome of your submission.
You can check the status of your submissions by clicking View Progress at the top of the Music Wanted and Deals Boards.
If the progress bar is GREEN that means the review process is still in progress and will only move forward to Success if your track has been selected.
If the progress bar is RED, your song has not been chosen this time around.
