OurStage is an online avenue for indie musicians and other types of artist to get exposure to a wider audience. Artists and fans alike can create profiles which serve as a homepage for their artistic work and a dashboard for their ratings, groups and everything else community related.

Users judge artists in hopes of their favorites landing a spot in the “Best Of” community. Judging works by comparing two songs or videos side by side and simply choosing the one you like the most. The highest rated artists eventually go on to win prizes such as Cash, Media Exposure or a slot at a big show.
