MTV are offering you the chance to be part of Brand New for 2012.

On December 9th our judges will announce the longlist of acts who go through to the public vote. You will then need to spread the word and get your fan-base to vote and tell everyone they know to vote too. We will be tracking each act's online buzz as well as counting their votes.  MTV’s crack team of music experts will pick an unsigned winner from the top ten - and on January 9th we will have our shortlist of 10.
