How can I submit an album?
Artists, labels, publicists… can easily submit for free their releases for the members’ consideration. Please check the Album Submissions page for more details about the requirements and procedures.

My album is in the Chart!
Congrats! This means that your album has achieved many votes from a panel of specialists from all over the world. You can proudly boast that you have charted on Transglobal World Music Chart showing one of the TWMC’s seals, our logo or banner. Pick them freely from our Media section.

Can I publish the Chart?
Of course. The aim of our work is to provide the maximum dissemination of this music. You can publish the chart freely with the only condition that you mention the whole name of the chart as follows: Transglobal World Music Chart. Including a link to our website and the TWMC logo will be highly appreciated. If you publish the chart in a regular basis, you can send us your logo and a link, that will be placed on the Partners section of our website. And if you send us a link with your publication of the chart, we’ll share it on our social networks.

The monthly chart is always published on the 1st day of each month. If you work for any media outlet interested in publishing the chart and you need to get the results earlier, let us know and we’ll send you a preview every month in advance. And if you want to be our media partner, get in touch with us as well.
