SHWDWN uniquely blends the excitement of talent shows with the contemporary relevance of social media. Our focus is solely on performing artists and their talent, ensuring they remain in the spotlight without competing with unrelated content.
The Standard version is primarily tailored for fans and audience members looking to engage, discover, and interact with performances on SHWDWN. While the PRO version is crafted specifically for performing artists. It unlocks a suite of advanced features that cater to their unique needs, including the ability to enter weekly talent contests and initiate crowdfunding campaigns to support their artistic endeavours. More details on the offerings of each tier can be found in our pricing section.
You're free to showcase both your original compositions and covers on our platform. Thanks to strategic partnerships with global music leaders like Sony, Warner, and Universal, users can perform and cover a vast range of popular songs. This not only ensures a diverse selection of music but also guarantees tracks are used respectfully and in compliance with licensing norms, properly acknowledging both artists and original creators.
SHWDWN is a celebration of the performing arts, encompassing a wide range of talents. Our current categories include music, dance, comedy, and variety. This means if you're a singer, musician, dancer, comedian, or have a unique act, our platform is tailored for you. From solo performances to group acts, acoustic sets to full-on productions, intimate comedic sketches to larger-than-life variety acts - SHWDWN is designed to be the digital stage where talent takes the spotlight.
SHWDWN offers multiple ways for artists to generate income. Whether it's through contest winnings or virtual tipping from fans, we're committed to providing diverse avenues to reward your talent and creativity.
Contests on SHWDWN are categorized based on the type of performance: music, dance, comedy, and variety. Each category holds its own contest on a weekly basis. Artists with the PRO subscription are eligible to enter. Within each category, there are 10 opportunities every week for artists to win cash prizes. Winners are determined based on fan admiration rather than a panel of judges, ensuring genuine, crowd-sourced acclaim.
Winning a contest on SHWDWN not only earns you accolades but also tangible rewards. Each victory comes with a cash prize, turning your artistic flair into financial gain. As a SHWDWN champion, a trophy gets added to your profile, celebrating and commemorating your success on the platform. This trophy serves as a badge, highlighting your accomplishments to fans, other artists, and audiences on SHWDWN. Not only that, but your winning performance will also be prominently showcased on your profile. Additionally, being a contest winner often leads to increased visibility, more fan engagement, and a stronger presence within the SHWDWN community.
Absolutely! Collaboration is at the heart of SHWDWN's ethos. PRO users have exclusive access to the collaboration feature. Duets are presented in a split-screen format, showcasing artists side by side. When uploading a performance, artists can choose to enable the duet option, which can be as broad as allowing any user on the platform to collaborate or as specific as inviting just one user to duet. The resulting duet creates a new video featuring both collaborating artists. Should this collaborative performance win a contest, SHWDWN ensures the prize money is split between the two artists. This not only encourages co-creation but also ensures both artists are rewarded for their combined effort, enriching the community and creative experience on the platform.
SHWDWN's AI recommendation is a system built on understanding individual preferences and ensuring artists connect with the right audience. When users join SHWDWN, they input their preferences for genres or specific categories of performances they're interested in. Our AI system then tailors the content accordingly, ensuring an artist specializing in jazz, for instance, reaches jazz enthusiasts. But our AI goes beyond initial preferences. It learns from users' engagement patterns — the videos they watch, the ones they linger on, and their search behaviors. Our advanced algorithms adapt and refine content delivery based on this ongoing engagement, ensuring a continually personalized experience. Through custom feed filters, users can further focus on specific content, honing in on what performances they want to see at any given time. This not only enhances user satisfaction but also empowers artists. It ensures they're not just reaching an audience, but the right audience, paving the way for genuine connections and future fans.
At SHWDWN, we prioritize creating a space that celebrates talent while ensuring a respectful, inclusive environment for everyone. All users are expected to uphold these values. Content that promotes violence, hate speech, or any form of discrimination is strictly prohibited. Additionally, anything that's not performance-based isn't suited for our platform. To empower our users with more control, we've added features allowing them to delete comments they find offensive or hurtful on their uploads. Users can also report inappropriate comments, videos and/or block others if needed.
