- We're all awaiting the rumoured Newgrounds redesign, and whatever exciting things that might come with it. How NG will look when it's launched, only the NG staff knows, but apparently there is need for an NG theme-song!
- Make a themesong for Newgrounds! Simple, eh?
- For those of you who remember NG a few years back, there have been a few songs on the frontpage (the NG frontpage, not the audio frontpage). The most popular and representative that have been however, is FDA (Shok) and Lavender Hill Mob‘s well known Endless Handbag NG Loop. This loop (full song; ENDLESS HANDBAG ('98 NG)) have a characteristic that suits NG perfect. It's mellow and smooth, and works perfectly as a background-loop, without being too much in the background.
- Some inspiration could be taken from ParagonX9, who's audio have been looping on and since the creation of the NG Audio Portal FrontPage. Have in mind that something more slow-paced might be to prefer, though.
#1. 250 USD, a Newgrounds t-shirt and stickers!
#2 - 10. A Newgrounds t-shirt and stickers!
- FrontPage spots for the two highest ranked loops.
- A sig-pic with the winners name on it (for everyone to use).
- Top ten submissions will be announced live by radiogrounds.com DJ PsychoGoldfish.
# It is a good idea to save the .wav or other high quality file, in case Your audio is the winner.
# Time is pretty short on this contest, but perhaps you already have a few suiting loops or so, amongst your workfiles that never was finnished? I know I have... :)
# How long the winning contestant will stay on the frontpage, or what’s going down after the contest is over, only the NG staff knows.
