Voice Acting Contest 9

Hey all you fine voice actors out there! Prove your skill and showcase your talent in Newground's 9th Voice Acting Contest! Be sure to read the rules carefully! So... basically read the rules, check out how the judging works, and submit your awesomeness for prizes and recognition! Newcomers and veterans are welcome as always! And this year I secured a very special prize for the 1st place winner!

THEME: Horrible Jobs

Contest Rules (PLEASE READ)
- Each entry needs to be a minimum of 2 minutes long and a maximum of 6 minutes long.
- Each entry must be about a HORRIBLE JOB! Open your mind and think out of the box! Be creative! (It counts towards your score)
- Each entry must have at least 3 different voices.
- Each entry must be submitted by October 5th, 11:59PM EST
- Each entry can be any kind of genre (comedy, drama, etc...).
- No one may help you with your entry. You must do everything by yourself.
- All sound effects and music must be royalty free. No copyright material is allowed. (Try using the NG Audio Portal!)
- All entries must be sent to the NG audio portal. If you are banned, get a friend to submit it for you or try contacting an audio portal moderator directly.
- You may use effects such as echo, robot, etc... however, manipulating your voice/pitch using your recording software is NOT allowed.
- Although only one submission per person is allowed, you may go back and edit the original entry as long as it happens before the deadline.
- Disobeying any rules will result in disqualification.

How To Submit
-All submissions MUST be submitted to the audio portal. As stated above, if you are banned, get someone else to submit it for you. (Note: If it is your first time submitting, there may be a delay for your skit to enter the portal so you might want to get that in early.)
-Once you have submitted the piece to the audio portal, copy the link and paste it into this thread. Once I see it, I will add it to the list.
-Please keep it between 2 and 6 minutes.

The Judging Process
Each entry will be judged per category. Each category has it's own point value. The total points will equal 150. After all points are added up, the more points you have, the higher place you will receive. (In case of a tie, I will break it). The categories are as follows:
Acting - The most important of all, YOUR ACTING! Your voice acting needs to sound like the character is actually in his or her situation. Try not to be monotone and dull. - 50 points
Range - How much each character varies from the others - 25 points
Fit - How well each voice fits the character. *An old man would have a raspy voice and a big guy would have a deep voice, etc...* (Obviously, consideration is taken if the voice is done differently for comedic value. Example: Old woman who smokes may sound like the fa guy from Aqua Teen hunger Force) - 25 points
Mixing - Not all of us can afford a good mic, but please try to make your final production as high quality as possible! If your voice is fuzzy and full of static , the judges cant judge your voice as well. This also includes how you mix together your SFX and music. - 20
Originality - How original your skit was. Be creative! - 15 points
Writing- It's all good if you have great voice acting, but let's try and have your skit make sense! This doesn't mean you have to be another Hemmingway, but there should be some sort of structure to your skit. - 15

The Prizes!
If you end up winning, here is what will happen!
1st Place - A FREE 1 hour voice over training session with Kyle Hebert + $60 Store Credit + Legendary Front Page!
2nd Place - $40 Store Credit + Freakin' Awesome Front Page!
3rd Place - $20 Store Credit + Fantastic Front Page!
4th Place - $0 Store Credit + Groovy Front Page!

If You Want to Judge!
We ALWAYS need judges, preferably a maximum of 5. Please note that if you do want to be a judge, results will be expected by October 26th. If results are not received by this date, your scores will not count.
If you would like to judge, send me a PM explaining why you are qualified to be one! (For judges, I'd like to see a track record of quality voice acting or a history of excellent reviews on voice acting) If there are openings, I'll send you what needs to be done!

Other Crap For You to Read!
Again the DEADLINE IS: October 5th 11:59pm EST!
A BIG thanks to Kyle Hebert (Most known for his work in Dragon Ball Z and Street Fighter) for sponsoring this contest. For those of you who are interested, visit his site by clicking on the link above the image at the bottom of this post or in my signature for more info on him and his training session via Skype. If you don't win 1st prize, I would still suggest checking him out! Friends of mine who have done this with him have really recommended it for beginners and vets a like plus he's pretty cool and isn't very strict about the time limit. ;)
Feel free to discuss the contest in this thread. It usually turns out to be a fun time! Obviously just keep flaming out of it. This contest is about bringing the voice acting community together! If your a beginner, throw in a submission anyway! It's a good way to get your name out there and to connect with others in the voice acting community... Besides, you never know what the outcome might be! If you have any questions, feel free to PM me. I'll keep you all updated with any changes and progress with judging.
I WANT DAT VOICE!

Also say hello to mrbipolar and Treg who will be helping me judge this contest!

Treg has been voice acting and producing for a long time until recently coming down with a voice condition. But luckily his knowledge and experience are still there!

For those of you who were involved with the last contest, you may also know mrbipolar as placing 4th (the top 10 all were very close in score).

Any questions can also be aimed at them if you have any. :)

Well here's mine. I'll probably update it before the deadline to add SFX and such, but I'm just putting it out there for review now.

Enjoy!

Hi guys! I'm one of the judges for this contest of larynx talent.

To clarify, I've been dealing with a voice disorder where my voice is easily strained for quite a while now. I've been through voice therapy for it, but never truly went back to the way I was. I'm basically limited to my normal voice and I can't talk for long periods of time or do any screaming. I'm semi-retired. I still voice stuff once in a while, I'm just more picky now.

Anywho, I've been enjoying listening so far. Keep your submissions comin!

I am terribly sorry to hear that!
Will the condition ever go away eventually?
Also, its good to hear that you haven't given up!
