We are excited to announce that POSH 2015 is presented by Songfreedom this year! They are providing each attendee with a song licensing gift along with giving away a grand prize at POSH valued at $250!

What is Songfreedom? Is Songfreedom a music licensing platform with the best music available? Are they a place where photographers and cinematographers can come to find the perfect song for their story with the click of a button? Or are they just the ones that make licensing real music affordable? Yes, they are all of those things but mostly, Songfreedom is about artists supporting artists.

Songfreedom supports musicians by making sure they get the opportunity to give permission for the use of their music and by making sure they actually get paid for their work. Songfreedom supports photographers and cinematographers by going through the long, difficult, and expensive process of music licensing for us so we can license it easily and affordably.
