Oh, how are the block votes calculated exactly? Are both of the member's votes averaged and the final ranking determined?

Lol!
Both members scores are added together, then the highest scorer gets the 24 points, second gets 19 and so on and such and such. Anyways, just thought I'd forewarn everyone. Things start to change dramatically, you think you know all the results? You really don't! ;)

Yeah 'cause I feel I don't really deserve the placing I have right now. I mean, I expected to come last or maybe 2nd to last, but 2nd? Yeah I have a feeling I'm gonna plunge dowwwwn the ranks.

Considering tomorrow's category is consistency and the block vote is mine, I'm pretty sure Japan is gonna get a comeback and get a last minute steel, so I'm putting my bet on Japan.

Also, thanks Nimble, goes straight to the heart! Really enjoyed your's too, feels very representative of the romantic era!

Wouldn't that mean Mexico gets 28 points, and Germany 56?

Kinda glad I did better in Entertainment, if not anything else. ^^

Yours and Japan's submissions were both breathtaking in their own unique ways. May the best man win :)

Wow! from 6th to 1st on the last vote. To take the victory from France by 2 points I don't think anyone could have predicted that. What a way to end the contest.

At this point I'd just like to give out a big thanks to NeonProject for putting this together. It was really well organised and for him I'm sure was nerve-wrecking at times. Really deserves our praise and I hope will be willing to put on another one next year because I had an absolute blast doing it and it's helped me become a bit more active here.

To conclude: Congratulations Turkey!

Changes to next years contest

Next year the country selection procedure will go back to participants selecting any country and being approved.

The top 5 of 2012 will be invited to return and submit their tracks before the 2013 contest launch so that we have 5 entries on the table. The countries are the ones that qualify, not the artist, the artists will be invited first but if they decline other artists will be contacted to represent that country.

Evidence and Representation will become one singular score.

2 new jury categories will be introduced; the first one will be called 'Contribution' these points will be awarded to participants who regularly post in the thread and review other works before the submission deadline. This will encourage more participation and contact from and between entrants. The second will be called 'Promotion' and will combine your entries voting score, download count, and views in a score. This will encourage artists to work harder to get an early finish and push for promoting their song before the submission deadline.

>.> Why couldn't you? You still own the rights to it, it's not like we signed a contract to hand over licensing rights for the contest. Unless of course he plans on releasing the entire RAC track pool on a CD and distributing it but again we didn't sign anything so..

Didn't you read the small print in the opening post that said in font size 0.00001 "by entering the contest NeonProject will own all your music as well as personal belongings including but not limited to your house".

Always read the small print xD

Woah! I just about shit my pants after reading that! To think that an experimental artist such as myself could actually win first place... That's really cool!

I'm proud to have represented such an amazing country for this contest. I don't think I could've won with any other country. I'd like to thank all the participants and judges. Of course, NeonProject too. I was hoping there'd be more submissions, but it was a good go anyway.

Just for the record... France is my favourite entry. >.>

My sig is clickable and takes you some place.

Okay seriously, most unexpected ending to a contest. EVER.

Was mostly expecting France or Japan to win, but Turkey just clinched the win at the final day. :o Congratulations to all the participants and of course the host as well.

Even though I came last, it wasn't a totally horrible performance considering I basically made my entry within 3 days. ^^
