CONTEST ENDS February 1st 2009 11:59:59 PM NEWGROUNDS TIME
PLEASE ONLY SUBMIT CONTEST ENTRIES HERE, ALL RELEVANT DISCUSSION SHOULD GO INTO THE DISCUSSION THREAD!
Welcome to the
Monthly (rule #10) Audio Contest 2009 - January-February Valoltine!.
It is where you lol in victory on Valentines.
This particular month's theme is remarkably something insanely original. Similar in quality but different in tone. Last MAC the goal was to make a determined piece. This MAC we find ourselves gazing into the eyes of your loved one.
I know you're reading this on NG and if you're anything like me, you're going to have to make them up (Palmela Handerson doesn't count i'm afraid).
Her name is Lucy, BACK OFF YOU TURDS!
So think of that pure joy and warmth as you reach out for them. As they embrace you and you're both just lost to the moment. Make that joy into song, that feeling of love. For the trance electronica artists this will likely involve a lot of sugary reverbed piano melodies. I look forward to diving through a pool of said reverb and pianos.
But seriously, there is fine differences between euphoria, and joy. I've heard the differences in many of your tracks, let's see you guys hone in and see if you can tap into that certain energy.
- You are allowed to submit 2 pieces of music to be judged. We ask that you do not throw in any more this time.
- You are NOT ALLOWED to submit old pieces of music to this, or any other future MAC (unless we have a nostalgic MAC, not happening soon).
Only entries made for the MAC can deserve to earn from it.
The awards this time around will be slightly different. Still using the X credits system we are now adding an additional $30 store credit per prize. This store credit can be used for goods in the store, but cannot be converted to regular credit.
You can also opt some of your regular credits converted to store credit and take even moreNG merchendisehome with ya ;D!!!! Just PM Bob to make the change after filling out the winners form.
We explained credits last MAC but here it is again in case.
If you win 200 credits, you can say "I want this shirt, this keychain, this DVD, and the rest of the credits in money". So We simply take away however much the shirt/keychain and DVD are from the credit pile and you get what's left over. We strongly encourage supporting fellow artists by taking home a DVD or shirt.
1st) 200 Credits
2nd) 125 Credits
3rd) 100 Credits
4th) 75 Credits
5th - 10th) mockery... cruel CRUEL mockery.
- Front Page Spots for the top four songs!
- With the addition of Revenue Split between Flash artists and musicians a great entry can look to earning a bit extra then what we give here by the exposure they gain!
1 - Check the Rules for Submitting Audio to the NGAP. If you still are unsure what's OK to upload and what's not, check this thread. Basically, you must not submit material that include samples you have no copyright/permission to use.
2 - Make a song according to these rules! FO SHO!
4 - Go to this thread and post a link to your song. Thanks to the new forum code all you need to do now is copy paste the link into your browser, and NG will automatically turn it into a link to click.
5 - Rig's mom wins, everybody else is honorable mentions. This includes Rig
6 - Do not break any of the rules stated in this thread. If you intend on submitting with different profiles, notify a Senior Judge about this. If we find out that you break the rules, you risk being disqualified from this contest. Depending on how serious your actions are, you might get banned from the contest for some time. Basic BBS rules apply in this thread too, of course. If there are posts that are irrelevant for the contest/spam, a moderator will clean it up. This mean your post(s) might get deleted, and you risk getting banned from the NG BBS. All according to the BBS rules and the forum specific Audio Forum rules.
7 - You should have your submission signed up for the contest in this thread by . If you cannot post for one reason or another, PM or e-mail a Senior Judge with a valid reason why you can't do it yourself, and we'll see to it that your contest entry is in. To make it even clearer; - No submissions will be accepted when February 1st is up.
Unless we extend the deadline, which is rare.
8 - It is now possible to update songs one have submitted to the contest, and it is allowed to do so. However, when the deadline rears its head, no more updates are allowed. The songs will be downloaded by this time, and distributed amongst the judges (or if they choose to download the songs themselves) to avoid the risk of somone updating the song post deadline.
9 10 finalist songs at the end of the day!
10 - LOL (ROFL'S IS NOT ALLOWED)
10.a - LMAO (LOL is a necessary first action)
10.a.b - GG (a LMAO on your behalf must be credited)
10.a.b.1 - WTF (A GG must be encountered)
10.a.b.1-D - BBQ (cannot bypass other terms to enjoy delicious)
- The judging will be done similar to previous MAC's, nobody escapes alive. 3 Senior Judges will judge, we would still gladly take as much help as we can get. So don't want to compete? Do a brother a solid and help judge!
- Rules, guidelines and other things that this contest may change as time goes by. If anything changes, you will find out by staying updated to this thread.
- If you have any bright ideas for future MACs, don't be shy to PM a Senior Judge about them. We are kinetically linked, so we know.
MaestroRage - Chief Judge, creator of the judging system. Likes to insult mothers.
SBB - Co-Chief and Senior Judge, makes sure everybody uses compression on their master bus because that ensures dynamics are ruined. (lets debate that nao!) But no I don't know if he does or not, but I assume things.
Rig - Co-Chief and Senior Judge. Is often photoshopped. Ironically is not often seen shopping for photos.
DarKsidE555 - Listmaster, updates the list of new submissions with new entries since the previous update marked.
TomFulp - Provides the awards along with creating/managing this website, newgrounds.com.
Rucklo - Honorary Mascot on Haitus, will return to us one day as manager :'(
Judges - We're always looking for good judges. By good I mean dependable and with some musical credit to their name. If your music experience is limited to open Magix Music Maker wait a couple more years before applying.

I did a song.
Stan and I wrote a song about casual sex...

This song took me a hell of a long time, mostly because I got sick and ruined my laptop, causing me to have to finish this song on a whole other computer. Anyways, here's my submission:
This is dedicated to Maestro's Raging Boner. It's like a gift from God Himself. I even feel obliged to capitalize his Bonerific Boner.
