Catalog believes in human curation, and we can’t do it alone. In addition to artist submissions curated by the core team, Catalog collaborates with contributing curators immersed in particular artist communities to expand the depth of sounds and perspectives on the platform.

How it Works

Contributing curators rotate in cycles. Each cycle has up to ten curators and spans eight weeks:

  1. Submission Window (2 weeks: Aug 1st to Aug 14th) Prospective curators provide: A mission statement expressing their intended focus area, summarize their background with their music community, and their familiarity with web3.
  2. Submission Review (2 weeks: Aug 15th to Aug 28th) Catalog reviews submissions and selects up to 10 contributing curators for the cycle.
  3. Contributing Curators Announced & Onboard Artists (4 weeks: Aug 29th - Sept 25th) Curators are announced at the start of this period and onboard up to 4 artists from the community they submitted to represent. Once an artist is onboarded, they may press a record on Catalog at any time.
