I was expecting more people to join the competition. First of all, where is Gravey?

We're probably going to see a good number of last-minute submissions tomorrow, but honestly, I'm not holding my breath.

Kinda sad though, I remember back in 08 during the MAC December, there were around 70 submissions.

who the fuck wants to sift through 70 submissions? That just means more people get rejected.

If anything there are more QUALITY submissions this time around.

Last day people!

One last day to enter the Orchestral NAC!

After Sunday comes to an end, thebenjerman, joshhunsaker, and I will be going through all of the excellent entries and picking the TOP 8 that will advance to the next round.

Good luck folks!

I'm guessing cause it's "orchestral" it has to include more than just strings? Are Symphonic songs allowed?

Alright, well the NAC Orchestral competition deadline was about 6 minutes ago, I believe.

Good luck, everybody: I've listened to all of the tracks in the contest, and they're awesome. (If I haven't posted a comment on your track yet, please don't be offended! I want to make sure I write a fair review for all of you!)

This was in the Orchestral NAC thread. We're now going through the submissions. They are awesome guys!

Here's a quick-list of competitors if you don't feel like flipping through the OrchNAC thread.

Good listening folks...

Well, well, i kinda feel bad for the judges. There are 28 awesome submissions (didn't include mine for the sake of modesty) to judge.

I'd say this is going to be one great contest!

Theres some really amazing submissions, and everyones delivered something with their own distinctive style and flare.

What makes it even more remarkable is that for most of us, this is our first time even attempting to write anything in this genre!

Good luck guys! Whether we make the top 8 or not, I think we can all be proud of the standard we've achieved.

Huge "amen" to that! I don't know about the rest of you, but I had a lot of fun attempting something like this. Will definitely be entering in many more contests after this one (hopefully!), I've had a great time so far!

Definitely. The quality of each submission is just superb - I guess NG has a knack for orchestral after all :3.

Good luck to everyone.

don't feel bad for the sweeper judges - they just yay or nay submissiosn and send them on their way - just like american idol - we implemented that to make it less of a headache for the judges - as noone wants to listen to 30+ submissions when only a few are going to place :P

not saying the others wont be listened to - they just won't be judged by us :)

Actually I believe we have to wait till the 26th for the finalists to be announced and 1st February for the Top 4 to be announced.

That's my third post over here in a few hours. I think I'm too excited.
