That's why I'm asking. I think they also deserve some attention. But this whole contest is about Flash and not about music.

id say $50-$75 is a generous amount.

Fairly. Maybe they also want $250, but like I said. This contest is about Flash, not about music.
NG is about Flash. The music portal is just a little addon.

What if like Wade submitts something, and it happens to get one of the top 5 submissions. Does that mean you have to pay wade? Or what if you, Tom, submitt something and it gets top 5. Who pays you? Wade?

Either way, its a funny situation to be in.

I already know who I would pick to win the money, but my opinion doesn't really matter I guess. I hope it goes to the right people. People who are truely creative, and don't get high praise for their movies just because of T&A and nudity, etc.
As for artists doing this for the money, I'll quote Han Solo:
"I've got a bad feeling about this."

A looooot of the great flash artists aren't 18. Why is that reason? Can't you use your parents name?

I think you need to be over 18, to accept money, that has been send from a foreign country.

But maybe your daddy want's to sign you in, EviLudy? ;)

I couldn't care less about the money because I probably won't win such a thing anyway, it's more about holding back the underaged users. I'm sick of that crap of the older users bitching off the younger once about their age.

Yeah, that's a lie. You only need to be 18 to drink your money.

This sounds like a cool idea, Tom. I never realized the NG monthly cost was so high, but it's nice to see you guys are making enough of a profit that you can spare prize money like this. If it works, I hope we see some really incredible stuff around here flash wise.

Damn the 18 years or Older :(
Although i woulnt win N E ways,
well as long as Newgrounds will be up in the nex 3-5 years, and the 250 bucks keeps going, hey i might aswell give it a try,
maybe i could make a flash that could take me 3 years to make.

But i think its a great idea for the prizes, and to all of u that are complaining that 250$ aint much, but just think... Hes Givign his own money away, and ur complaining? like dont take these things for granted, it was his own decision to start up Newgrounds, and Give away stuff, so dont go bitching about.
Although i am Bitchign myself

What if we've used copyrighted music in our submissions? I can't win this, due to age, but it's just something that has occured to me.

What star syndicate did for 'just some high scores' was horrid.
Bringing money into the situation will probably introduce new levels of e-fraud and cheating.

The idea of giving something back to flash artist's is a good idea, yet it might make amature artists feel inferior to the top dogs more so than ever.

Well, lets see how it goes. Nothing is ever final.

Hey there, I just wanna say it's extremely generous and kind from you guys to do something like that, not only newgrounds.com is a portal where you can get an amazing exposure for your work, for FREE, and there you go giving money prizes on top of that.

I mean just the website with the whole review/vote/profile/front page/awards/board/etc is a big gift to every flash artists around.

I wish you all the success with everything you do. You deserve it.
Too bad I submit something only once a year or so :( haha

Peace

Yeah, that is a good question. That means people could argue about the music being used in a non-profit production. I don't really have to worry about it I guess, not 18 till June.

Well, just act with maturity and then we'll see. And besides, he's not "holding back" on underaged users, it's just a legal thing...

Actually, this worries me a bit... But since the prize can be seen more as a donation then a payment for the cartoon using copyright music, it can be legal, right?

If I'm worng, can someone who has deeper knowledge of the thing correct me?

That worries me, too. There's no guarantee we will always be able to afford to have monthly prizes. I just hope that if / when that happens, users will understand and appreciate the fact that we did it when we could. :)

I am the sole owner of the company, so I can either pay the money to myself, or to other people. It's basically my money when it comes down to it.

Using copyrighted music will not disqualify your submission, but it will be considered in the judging process. If there are two submissions that are close and one uses Audio Portal music while the other uses copyrighted music, the one with Audio Portal music will win.
