June Nac '12 - Summer Cheer Theme 2012-06-03 01:10:08 Reply

WELCOME TO THE EIGHTEENTH OFFICIAL NAC!

I bring you June's theme: SUMMER CHEER THEMED!!

"Summer Cheer themed" you say? What does that mean?

Well.. it basically just means make a song that people should listen to during the summertime.. generally sunny, cheerful, energetic etc.

and by cheerful I mean ramp that shit up to grin inducing my little ponyesque cheerfulness :P

a summer song has to be positive, have cheerful positive energy and make ya wanna GROOVE!

..oorrr just have positive energy :P

orrr Make a summer hit song, with a catchy tune and meaningless lyrics :3

Examples

California Girls
Sexy and I know it
Party with Pinky
Smile Smile Smile
caramel dancing
Tobuscus - Gimme That
Onnaji kimochi

Covers and Remixes

Covers or remixes are allowed for this contest, as well as if you are covering or remixing another users song that they submitted to the portal in the past, or your own song that you may have submitted in the past.

Production

Production WILL play an important role in this contest. This will stress quality and pressure the contestants to put as much effort, knowledge and talent that they possibly can! into their submissions.

1) If you use real instruments - make sure they sound sweet!
2) If you use a real vocalist - make sure the vocals sounds sweet!
3) If you use Nuendo or East west (which I know 90% of you that go down that route will) - for the love of god - mix it properly!

BONUS POINTS

most cheerful song without makeing me wanna bust a cap in yo ass.

---

Voices

Voices can be used, provided that:
1) It is not sampled from copyrighted recordings.
2) It is 100% your own recording and creation.
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! Make sure you list any you used in your song description, and if anyone else helped, list them as well! As a result if someone assists you with instruments 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.

Further questions pertaining to official NACs can be found in the NAC General Discussion Thread

Last but not least, remember to have fun! Don't get too competitive and/or elitist, or I may have to bash some heads! :P

"Cheerful" Musicians and singers, this is your time to shine!

Here are the set dates and deadlines for this contest

From now till 11:59 PM EST Friday June 22nd: Submissions will be accepted.

Sunday June 24th: 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.

Sunday, July 1st: The top 4 will be announced by our finalist judges, as well as frontpaged the next month at some point by one of the audio mods (frontpage not guaranteed & results may be delayed till the second in case of emergency or me having a good enough excuse to delay it)

also only songs submitted uniquely for the contest month will be accepted (you cannot have one for that month and it also submitted 2 years ago as well for example, or have a repeat nac entry submitted from last year)

---

The finalist judges for the "Summer Cheer" NAC will be...

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 NG veterans of all kinds. I will keep you posted.

Also Tylandril (aka Realmguys aka Tyler) as well as Evil-Dog have offered to be standby judges - (however Realmguys cannot make it this month due to personal reasons so we do have some NAC Judge spots open) - which means they are free for me to use in the finalist judging if I feel their skills are appropriate for the contest judging-wise :) They will be most likely helping in this contest.

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.

Well i'm apperently a derp, cause i didn't realize i can't change the name of the songs now (either i'm not finding it, or i need to stop leaving the site for so long lol).

So unfortunately, this will probably be the name of the final track, unless i am able to just post another track.
