Madness Day 2011 Info & Prizes Aug. 3rd, 2011 @ 10:47 AM Reply

There are FOUR DAYS left to vote for the Best of July, check your account page to see if you're on the voting panel!

September 22nd is the fourth annual Madness Day and we are celebrating with Madness-themed movies, games, music, art and lit, with a bunch of prizes.

Game and movie submissions must feature non-commercial music, so your best bet is the Audio Portal. The Madness Music Contest thread will have fresh new stuff, while a search for madness will turn up a lot of classic gems. Cut them in on a percentage of earnings and link to their user pages from within the Flash if it's not too crowded! These submissions spread to other sites so it's nice for everyone to get cred.

Game and movie submissions must be posted on Madness Day, September 22nd. Music, Art and Literature can be posted any time between now and September 22nd and can also be used and credited within game and movie submissions.

We have set up individual threads for each category:

Movie Thread (Prizes: $1000, $750, $500, $250, $100 for 5-10th)
Game Thread (Prizes: $250, $50, $30)
Music Thread (Prizes: $100, $40, $30)
Art Thread (Prizes: $100, $40, $30)
Lit Thread (Prizes: $100, $40, $30)

Madness Day prizes are subject to increase / expand based on results, especially if some awesome games show up.

The best collaborative work resulting in a game or movie will receive a $250 BONUS.

Be sure to tag your movies, games and art with both "madnessDay2011" and "madness". Include "MadnessDay2011" in your audio submission descriptions. If the option becomes available in time, tag your audio with "madnessday2011" and "madness" instead!

A Madness Day 2011 button will soon be available for game and movie entries; please include it on your loading or menu screens and link to the Madness Day 2011 page so everyone can get more exposure. With a little luck we'll all be experiencing this on a fancy new NG.

The TEN YEAR anniversary of Clock Day is on August 15th, less than two weeks away! Make it special.

I do that the first of the month anyways when I see it. :P

Sounds real fun Tom.

I wonder if there will still be users using commercial free music that the author would let them use.

Would not mind reviewing them, might find some new tunes I enjoy there as well.

The TEN YEAR anniversary of Clock Day is on August 15th, less than two weeks away! Make it special.

Happy early Clock Day then. Will we be seeing a Clock Day themed Newgrounds for the day as well once more?

I'm actually gonna be on vacation during Clock Day this year so I gotta see about getting something ready to go. Was hoping it would be for the new layout but that's a no-go.

Should make the redesign happen after you come back from vacation and after Clock Day then.

You could change that by making something really neat for one of them and creating fond memories in the process!

Disregard the rest of this post if I'm an idiot and simply missed a news post about Clock Day that's no longer in that section of the forum.

You have several competitions going for the fourth Madness day, which is no particularly important anniversary, as well as dominating the post with info about it. Then, you put in a quick little reminder sentence at the end for the tenth Clock Day, which is in the opinion of most people a bigger anniversary for most any relationship, company, or event.

:/

I am surprised that Clock Day isn't being hyped up as much as it normally is especially considering that this is going to be the 10th one. Trying to cut down on the spam some, Tom?

It has felt like for the past few clock days, the clocks have wanted it to be more focused on stuff by actual clocks, so I assume they are just organizing that among themselves.

Is Bunnykill or other 'Kill-em-all' flashes allowed, or must it be Madness?
