Project for Awesome Nerdfighter Music Compilation!


Hey nerdfighters. As you know, the Project for Awesome is coming up (on December 17th!) and we at vlogbrothers headquarters are working very hard to make sure this year’s P4A is a great one.

This year, we would like to include a new kind of perk, kind of like the Nerdfighter Art perk, but with music!

We are looking for any and all songs by nerdfighters, about nerdfighteria. These songs will be collected and formatted into a compilation album (or compilation albumS, depending on how many submissions come in) that will be available for purchase as a downloadable perk as part of the Project for Awesome Indiegogo campaign. Money will be raised for charity. People will be able to acquire lots of great nerdfighter music. Super cool stuff.

Read on for submission guidelines and the like.

  • All songs must be either about nerdfighteria, about any/all of John’s books, or covers of Hank’s songs.
  • Artist name & song title must be included with your submission. You may also include a link to your music on the web (bandcamp, itunes, etc), and any other text about the song you like.
  • Songs must be submitted in as high a quality as possible; lossless files (AIFF, WAV) are preferred.
  • Submit all songs via wetransfer to with “P4A MUSIC” in the subject line.
  • Submissions will be accepted until November 1st, 2014.
  • Multiple submissions are very much allowed, but please send them in one at a time!
  • We will reach out to those whose songs are selected for the compilation to confirm their inclusion no later than December 1st.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at We’re very excited to listen to all the lovely things you make!

I would like to help out with the P4A art, but what if I am unable to complete 15 pieces? Some of the arts I do are a little expensive for me to make 15 of at the current moment. Would it still be possible for me to participate?
