SURPRISE! It may not be Feb. 5th, but who gives a crappp

At last! How did I come up with these calculations so quickly? Because I don't have other judges that I have to wait on, and I'm not a lazy sloth.

You could score anywhere from 0-100 in each category, and I have painfully sat and listened to each submission rigorously. I paid attention to each minor and major detail, and I had to do so without showing favoritism. Now keep in mind that I am not perfect. If there is an inconsistent miscalculation in the scores, I apologize. Look at your name, and make sure the scores add up.

This contest brought out some interesting pieces, but one thing that I noticed which seemed to repeat itself were people who stated, "This isn't my best work, but.." nonsense. You missed your chance.

The winners are as follows:

1) http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/521295

2) http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/521642

3) http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/521865

4) http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/521975

Those of you whose total scores were in the 300's achieved your dreams of splendor. You are the greatest our site has to offer. Those who did not participate fell into the weaknesses and traps of life, but you have prevailed.

Those of you who placed in the top 4 will be featured on the front page probably on February 11th. Keep your eyes peeled.

When you're ready for your payout, send me a pm. If you have a paypal account, let me know what that is along with your email address. DO NOT TELL ME YOUR INFO ON THIS THREAD. Only give me the personal info via pm.

Congratulations to those of you who scored in the 300 range. You all are truly the heroes of Newgrounds Audio!

I will post the scores below. If it is unreadable, I'll figure out a way to correct it:

I left a note up for the other audio mods, asking for that date, but AFAIK, you may have to PM Bad-Man-Incorporated and ask him directly (since Feb 11th is his turn to do the FPs)

First one to comment? Aw. :3

Alright, where do I start, oh yes! Congratz to not just the winners, but anybody who participated this special event, for I think their effort have been a significant contribution to the current Audio community in this big network of competition, entertainment and support called Newgrounds.

There may have been lows, there may have been diamonds in the rough. We all shared something important, and that is the feeling of making something simply because we can do it, and it's indeed a constructive experience born from our own dedication and lively imagination.

Thank you Bosa for this opportunity, may this be the first out of a multitude of oneiric realities.

Personally, I've been a naughty boy. I haven't reviewed much, I haven't talked about my ideas much with you, I ended up isolating myself. There are multiple reasons behind this... let's call it "decision", mainly real life matters, as I'm sure everybody has - from family, school, important institutions, work, anything involving stress and the hassle of fulfilling tasks. I could have done much better even in situations like that, I acknowledge it, I'm sorry but it's always time to move forward. To let our perceived failures be the stepping stones to our stronger, evergreen present.

Again, sincerely and humbly... thank you for everything.
KKS

Fantastic! Congratulations to all of the winners! There were some great entries in this contest. :)

I did not place high on the list, but I think I've managed to achieve something in the end. I must admit I am a little disappointed in myself for not getting higher than what I did...BUT...that just means I have a lot to work on, which is a very exciting notion for sure! Thanks Bosa for hosting this contest.

Again, great job everyone!

What in the heck- How the HELL did I get the highest quality/mastering score?

Also congrats Buoy! Looks like we both got the highest novelty/originality score. ^_^ Perhaps we should collaborate and knock everyone's socks off sometime!

Congrats to the winners!

And thank you Bosa for giving us this opportunity to work hard and make our "best" tracks. I did feel that mine was my best, but I realize I still have a lot to learn in order to get up there with some of NG's best artists. Everyone made some great tracks, and the 4 that won are amazing artists on their own, and their tracks are definitely worth of the crown. So my respect goes to all of you guys.

I think this is probably the calmest I've ever taken a loss. Damn.

Thanks again, Bosa. Until the next one.

Highest writing/sequencing score, mediocre quality score. And third place???? *faints*

No but in all seriousness, I'm humbled and honoured all at once. Thank you!

And congrats to all the other winners, as well as all those who gave this a shot. I was kinda expecting Buoy and/or SkyeWintrest to be on top, and I guess my expectations weren't befuddled this time.

P.S.: bassfiddlejones, this was well battled. +

I'm surprised at the results, especially the measly 50 you gave me in "quality/mastering", which I totally disagree with, but oh well.

Congrats again!

Couldn't be happier with the results! That was some fine work Bosa for getting all of this done so quickly and efficiently. I think all other contests should adapt this scoring/grading scale, it seems to work very well!

Honored once again to be placed at the top with the rest of the others who placed, and everyone else as well! I haven't seen so many push themselves so hard in a contest on NG in a while, so again thanks to Bosa, and the rest of the community on the AP for keeping us inspired to make great music!

13th place is hardly something to brag about, but sure, why not?

Also, gratz to the winners, and big props to Bosa for organizing this whole event which pushed so many to bring their musical endeavors to fruition!

Damn, i couldn't even score 300 points. Just why the hell do i even keep trying ?

Anyways, congrats are in order, not only for the winners, but for the whole top ten. Being in the top 10 against almost 50 contestants is quite a feat.

Also, bravo to Bosa, whose judging skills are yet to be matched.

Knowing you, Camoshark... :P

I'll just need those trophy images once again.... Those from the NAC signatures, and then hopefully I should be able to work some magic.

The top 6 will be front paged instead of the top 4. I hope you all enjoy the publicity!

's a pretty nice spot on my record, getting second place in the second contest I actually bothered to submit something in (unless you count my helping Step with Yuletide Groove as entering a contest).

By the way, Trois, congratulations on third!

Wow! This was really a great contest. Really great entries in this! And trois, if you do the top 10, list mine as 3^2 (three squared) so I feel more accomplished! :P

I do not understand why my submission wasn't counted.

I posted on the third page of submissions, and again after a list was compiled in order to correct the list.

Thanks anyway
