Comp Question...
Hydro Hellsing Hydro Hellsing is offline 25-06-2012, 06:04 AM

Are we (Site Members or just VIP's) allowed to host Competitions and if so are we allowed to give away Prizes not related to Music as long as the Comp's Music Oriented?

These are the guideline/rules I gave in another thread if anyone wants to add or suggest modifications: -

1) Relevance to the compo i.e. a summery vibe (or pi55-takes on summer)
2) Originality (to my ears)
3) Decent lyrics and decent vocals (if not an instrumental)
4) Decent soloing if not a vocal job
5) Entertaining
6) Decent Production (why so low on the list Andy I heard ya say?....)

Now call me picky (if ya must) but a competition that is open to tracks that celebrate summer may not pull-in a few Siberian, Norwegian or Yupik Eskimo entries. Thinking about it - the rest of the frozen world in its entirety lol.

Also a track that is a “Pi55 Take on Summer” could mean anything (like a song about smurfs or purple haze) so a little extra tightness on the words may be appropriate cos when the sharp end of the compo arrives folk will get bitchy (esp me).

I take it you mean a song that either celebrates said summer or denigrates it.

Its really simple!

1. Enter a track
2. If the voters think it gives them a summer feeling then then it gets a vote
3. The one with the most wins


We all will have a different idea of what summer is all about so there cannot be a definitive set of rules.

Now less chat, more production please

What he said.

Details of the comp should be up soon - it's looking pretty good so far, as our first members-organised comp. In the meantime, feel free to start working on your Summer tune, whatever that might mean to you.

Good luck! And looking forward to hearing the entries!

I'm gonna come off as an asshole to most people when they read this LOL but I'll tell you what Darth and Andy, I'm not the happiest camper either about Andy being Judge due to the diversity of genre's, he's not as well rounded as he needs to be as far as knowledge of multiple genres is concerned (Particularly EDM), also comps past have put Andy in a "Bad Place" in a lot of members eyes as a judge...

What I'm gettin at is if he wants to continue to organize (I see the fights have already begun BTW) it's all good my way but for judging let me take the reigns, it's only right anyway as I'm providing the Prize thus makin me Official Host of this UN-official comp, you should already know how Pissed I'll be if I gotta ship across the world for a bogus track that shouldn't have won..

Also if it's me I'd like input on entry rules as well...
