Kena is a community for aspiring musicians helping and growing together. Participating and getting recognized here matters.


1) Show us your creative side. Just shoot a video on your phone and upload it to win. We are not looking for studio-quality editing but good creativity. (Unlike other platforms, you are exposed to an audience of music practitioners and musicians here on Kena).

2) Promote your videos to get more likes that increases your chances of winning.

Terms and Conditions Agreement:

1) Start the video where we can visibly see you and audibly hear you saying "Hey Kena" and then play your song to establish the authenticity of the video. Or write ❤️ Kena (A heart followed by Kena) on a piece of paper and show it in a way that is clear and visible. Please do not video edit the text as we need one continuous video with you holding the paper and then starting the music. Here is an example of a qualified submission: video establishing authenticity and reasonable quality for submission

2) Note that to qualify, we should be able to see you play the instrument or singing in person clearly. Kena has the right to disqualify the video if we cannot verify if you actually played or sing in the video. 

3) The video should be posted on the community posts section of the Kena Opus app to qualify.

4) The contest starts on the 1st of every month and ends on the 20th of the same month. All entries should be submitted by the 20th. The remaining days of the month are used as the judging period.

7) All videos should be about 2-5mins on average for the duration of you playing the music. Any submissions above 5mins or below 2mins will not be qualified.
