February NAC 2012: spread the love! 2012-02-01 21:10:15 Reply

PLEASE DO NOT POST COMMENTS IN THIS THREAD! Instead redirect them to the NAC General Discussion Thread.

WELCOME TO THE FOURTEENTH OFFICIAL NAC!

The NAC Team is pleased to bring you February's theme: Spread the love!

Spread the love? But what does that mean Chron?

Well, here is how it works:

Contest Focus

Well if is february and it is the month of love - now this doeesn't mean the song has to involve love per SAY - it means that those who listen to it have to fall in love with it.

It is basically a make the most addictive popular song ever contest. It's gotta have energy, possibly vocals, probably dancy.. poppish, maybe even have rappers guest star in it, that seems popular these days - I'm talking LMFAO sexy and I know it popular - just gets in your bones and you can't get it out - AND MAKE IT SEXY!

HEAVENS ROAD POPULAR BABY

fuck the scorn of 4/4, fuck stuck up arrogant notions of what is and isn't music, pull out all the fucking stops it dont matter HOW you make it popular just MAKE it popular! :P

and if you have issues with the contest focus - don't bitch - JUST DON'T ENTER!

---

Examples

yeah I'm gonna include a crap ton.

LMFAO - sexy and I know it

Moves like Jagger

We Found Love

Give me everything

and of course..

what is love?

I know none of those are vocalless - but if you can somehow pull off a heavens road or something of equal addictiveness go right on ahead :P - remember 0 HIGH ENERGY - ADDICTIVENESS - and who cares it the methods are generic - generic tends to = addictiveness - MAKE IT ADDICTIVE!

..oh WHAT THE HELL!

Love song - st. elmos fire

Covers and Remixes

Not allowed for this contest.

---

Voices

Always welcome! Just make sure they conform to these guidelines:

1) They are not sampled from copyrighted recordings.
2) They are 100% your own recording and creation (or someone who has given you permission)

3) You can ask another artist or group to provide vocals, as long as all material is newly created for your submission, and you provide the details of the vocalist(s), who they are.

Instruments & Collabbing

Recordings of instruments are great! If you do kudos to you! Recording of vocals is super great too. As a result if someone assists you with vocals you may include them as part of your song - just make sure to mention them in your song description. The prize however will only go to the user that submitted the song.

---

Deadlines

All tracks must be in by the deadline. Please check your Newgrounds in-boxes regularly. If you have a problem with reaching the deadlines, please contact us as soon as possible, and we will review your case.

Submissions must not contain any material deemed offensive.

AND NO SUBMITTING MUSIC THAT WASN'T "UPLOADED" DURING THE MONTH OF THE CONTEST! AND THAT IS UPLOADED STILL PREVIOUSLY! Delete it and resubmit it if you feel like doing that. Sheesh.

and if I missed any rule and you are unsure - please look through previous month's NAC threads - all rules have been listed at some point or other, or in the nac discussion thread. I don't have to answer your questions as all has been addressed at some point or other. Use some initiative!

Last but not least, remember to have fun! Don't get too competitive, bitchy, whiny and/or elitist, or I may have to bash some heads! :P Remember - it is a FUN CONTEST - if you don't like the contest, don't join!

I'm serious about that last one.

Set Dates & Deadlines For Contest

From now till 11:59 PM EST Friday February 24th:Submissions will be accepted.

Sunday February 26th: The 8 finalists will be announced, and their submissions will be closely scrutinized and reviewed by our finalist judges. NO BUTTHURT WHINING PLEASE.

also no pulling a Kanye West please.

Thursday, March 1st: The top 4 will be announced by our finalist judges, as well as frontpaged the next Monday by one of the mods. (if no other big contest comes first)

winners may also be posted on the second, in case of emergencies or me being too busy for some reason on the 1st..

---

The finalist judges for the Spread the Love NAC are...

To be determined - I will be taking offers from anyone interested - so PM me if you are interested. We prefer judges who have been around the block a few times on newgrounds - as evidenced by the all-star lineup we had in the past - so this month we are looking for.. fuck.. I dunno.. committed people who don't suck. I will keep you posted.

Also Tylandril (akaRealmguys aka Tyler) has offered to be a standby judge - which means he is free for me to use in the finalist judging if I feel his skills are appropriate for the contest judging-wise :) He will be most likely helping in this contest.

Evil-dog has also been consistently helping in judging and thus I will also mention him as a standby judge. At the end of the day reliable judges are what is most important. As well as judges that I already have years worth of experience with also helps.

If you want to be a sweeper judge, please talk to me.

Also keep in mind that as a finalist judge you only have ONE WEEK to judge the 8 submissions, so if this is an issue for you, or you think you might not be able to pull through, then PLEASE DON'T OFFER!

We will pick the top three from the 8 finalists.

I made this mashup, but I'm not uploading it to the audio portal for obvious reasons. But I should get working on something that will be audio portal suitable.

you should totally do a parody song Randy. There is nothing against the rules as long as you sing it yourself and make your own lyrics :)
