Register your works and upload your audio - Jingle Reports due 31 July

In order to pay royalties to composers or publishers of music used in advertisements - including commissioned jingles, general works licensed for use in commercials and production music (referred to below as jingles) - we need to know when the work has been broadcast.

In the past, all television and radio plays were self-reported, meaning we asked our members to let us know where their works were broadcast. Following extensive industry consultation with our Jingle Advisory Group, we have now moved to using music recognition technology to track plays in major metropolitan areas. 

This means that if you've had your jingles included in advertisements, you MUST register your works and upload audio files in the Writer Portal to get paid.

If your jingles have been used exclusively outside of the following major metropolitan areas, you will need to report your jingle use at the form HERE.

  • New Zealand Radio: Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington; and
  • New Zealand TV: Auckland
