October Music Contest - Announcement (October the 5th!)

Post by BurneMusic » Fri Sep 21, 2018 7:54 pm

Well hello good people of SuperWerer!

Due to certain limitations of staff, I will be hosting this theme-less music contest.
Even though it is theme-less, with halloween coming up it'd be great to hear some halloween themed entries.
Any genre is welcome for entry!!


This contest has been backed up by Super himself and he would love to hear all of your submissions!

The rules of submission are:
- Submissions must be created in the event sub-forum, THROUGH ANY MEANS (Newgrounds, Soundcloud, etc) The event forum can be found here - viewforum.php?f=97
- The entry must have a download, if possible.
- The entry must be your own work.
- You must enter the submission before the 20th of October
- Try to make your post submission easily identifiable, preferably through a tag like *(Contest Submission)*
- YOU CAN SEND THINGS MADE BEFORE THIS ANNOUNCEMENT.

Keep In mind that the submission CAN be made for the contest, although it does not have to be.

Failure to follow these simple rules will result in exclusion of your entry.

"Well, what happens when I send my submission in?"
Well, once the submission has been sent to one of the judges via forum entry, it will be sent round to each judge where they will get their say on your track as well as their ranking.
This will then all be compiled into a large entry thread attached to this one, where every judges input on each track will be visible.


These submissions will be judged by:
Me (Burne)
Jon (Jonathaj)
Criz (Crizdav)
Ava (Avarise)

The submissions will be judged on 5 categories:

Production - /5
Overall quality of the track, Sound choice, sample choice, etc.

Mixing - /5
How well the track is mixed.

Composition - /5
How the chords work, melodies, timings, etc

Arrangement - /5
The structure of the track and how well it works.

Sound Design - /3
How sounds are designed, could be with a synth such as serum or how creatively an unconventional idea may be used.

THERE WILL BE A CATEGORY ON COMMUNITY REACTION ALSO:
If a submission has a lot of positive feedback, or lots of thanks/good reviews on sites of origin, this can be scored.

Community Reaction - /3

These will be put into averages, and this will impact who wins.
Also keep in mind that the judge's specific tastes my effect the results, this does not mean that the contest is rigged.

Now you might be thinking, "Well what's in it for me?"

The top 3 winners will receive the following:

1ST PLACE GRAND PRIZE:
A collection of GOOD QUALITY samples from yours truly, these can include preset packs for Serum if chosen. (Optional, only if the winner would like them)
1000 Points!
A special Badge!
30-Day promotion on the forums!
Reposts on Soundcloud, the forum, and other places!
The judges approval!

2ND PLACE PRIZE:
A smaller collection of GOOD QUALITY samples from yours truly (Optional, only if the winner would like them)
500 Points!
Reposts on Soundcloud, etc
The judges approval!

3RD PLACE PRIZE:
250 Points!
The Judges Approval!!!

Participation Prize:
100 points!

There will also be small prizes for participation.

All in all, I believe that a contest like this could really help spark the music community in this server and I really feel that this could honestly help all of us grow as producers (mainly from the judge reviews.)

Please enter! the samples alone would be worth it, trust me ;)
Help build the community!!

And please, if you have ANY QUESTIONS, ANY QUESTIONS AT ALL, do NOT HESITATE to ask me, in the comments or in the dms! :)


Results will be announced on the 25th of October!

If you are using SoundCloud, you can go to your track, click:
more->edit track->permissions->enable downloads
If not, it's not too big of a deal, it's just convenient for the judges.

Not participating will dig you deeper ;)

The main purpose of this contest is for the participants to grow better, faster and stronger from the feedback and pressure.
