RULES

- The primary focus of this contest will be on pieces of music that sound and / or feel like a Christmas carol. Basically, anything that you feel would make a great Christmas song would work. Screaming a metal tune about Jesus, or a Hip-Hop track about "Santa's Hoes", for example. Humor and creativity are encouraged, but you can also enter a serious traditional-sounding piece as well.

- Any type of arrangement or instruments can be used.

- Songs can be a maximum of 5 minutes. However, slightly longer songs may be taken into consideration and reviewed on a case-by-case basis. There will be no minimum time limit, but please, use your objectivity and common sense... "Does this track constitute a complete full-length song?"

- Collabs are allowed in this contest. You are allowed to collab with ONE OTHER PERSON ONLY. Be sure to provide correct credit details in your project pages. Prize credits awarded will be split evenly between the two collaborators if their song is one of the winners.

- No copyrighted samples. This is rather obvious and self-explanatory. Be sure to also check the Rules for Submitting Audio to the Newgrounds Audio Portal.

- Voices can be used, provided that:
a) It is not sampled from copyrighted recordings.
b) It is 100% your own recording and creation.
c) You can ask another artist or group to provide vocals (for example your collab partner), as long as all material is newly created for your submission, and you provide the details of the vocalist(s), who they are.

- Submissions must not contain material offensive in nature.

- No covers. All melodies contained in your submission must be composed ENTIRELY by yourself.

- Songs must be NEWLY COMPOSED and created for this competition.

- Each competitor can submit only ONE song for this contest.

- Please submit your entry using your regular account, not an ALT.

- Have fun! Lots and LOTS and LOTS of yuletide fun!!!

Here's my entry!

It kind breaks the 5 minute barrier but hopefully that wont be too much of an issue.. It variates a lot so hopefully that classifies it enough to be a full length song. Good luck!

Put this together in less than four days. And that's if you don't consider all the distractions due to my family, (though in their defense: it is Christmas Time). Wishing everyone the best of luck and a Merry Christmas.
