Welcome to the
Monthly Audio Contest 2008 - April Pico Punchout!.
CONTEST ENDS APRIL 22ND 2008 11:59:59 PM
This same picture was used for the Pico contest last year, a stab of nostalgia :')
- Last MAC we made themes for Pico and friends and other related characters. This was for
flash authors to have a collection of songs to use and co-ordinate around if they wanted,
giving them a solid month at least if they wanted to use anything. This MAC it's OUR turn to
celebrate Pico Day OUR way. By making him Pico Tributes!
(straight out from the previous MAC :D!)
Pico is the face of Newgrounds! Been
around longer then most whipper snappers reading this. Thats right, GET OFF NEWGROUND'S LAWN!!! YOU BASTURDS, HE'S AN IMMORTAL LIL JERK THAT CAN KILL U ALL!
If you are new to Pico (GTFO!), view the collection to get a good understanding of what he is
percieved as and who you think he is. Pico is described as a quiet, but fully murderous capable
child who can kick ass and kick it hard if need be.
For this reason making a tribute to him can be hard. Notice I said tribute, not theme. Tribute anything about him that you like. Perhaps you like his silent goofy, couldn't care less attitude. Perhaps you like his headshot abilities. Pick something about Pico which peaks your interest, and FOCUS!
- The contest has no set theme/genre. You can take any aspect of pico and express it any way you want. Don't limit yourself, stay creative!
- You will recieve a harder judgement if your contest submission(s) are not new, or designed for the MAC. If it's more then 6 months old, really you're just wasting your time.
- Alot of flash-artists have shown to have alot of usage for these two genres, and since the
MAC have grown fairly big on NG, it's good extra exposure for your audio.
1st) $100 + Shirt
2nd) $100 + shirt
3rd) $100 + shirt
- Front Page Spots for the top four songs!
- Hopefully somebody will help make a sig for us! If you're interested in lending a photoshopping hand, let us know!

6 - Do not break any of the rules stated in this thread. If you intend on submitting
break the rules, you risk being disqualified from this contest. Depending on how serious your
actions are, you might get banned from the contest for some time. Basic BBS rules apply in this thread too, of
course. If there are posts that are irrelevant for the contest/spam, a moderator will clean it
up. This mean your post(s) might get deleted, and you risk getting banned from the NG BBS. All

Might as well submit this today, I can always submit something later...
This is dedicated to his childish and mature side, if that exists. I know its in there somewhere! So, when Pico's not murdering bad dudes, he can chill to this.
I really doubt this song will get on the top 5, but what the hey, trying never hurts.
This was suposed to reflect how Pico can kill people all harcore like but still have a childish side to him.
Also, what the hell. I know this submissions gonna get judged pretty unmercifully for not being new. But when I was making this song, I actually kind of planned on submitting it to the Mac, but figured I wouldn't cause I didn't know how well it would fit the theme. But seeing as there really isn't a set theme I'll go ahead and submit it. This would go well with Pico's more childish side :P
Pink Elephants And Lemonade
Don't be too harsh :)
The bass reminded me of the iceball ski-ball machines. Shut it. >:C
Also I see there is nearly no submissions to this MAC... which is surprising and sad. I thought that maybe there would be a slew of submissions for this.
I started working on it yesterday... Dun have much free time :(
I'll try to find some time to make it better and add a proper ending till the end of the day, so please accept this piece of crap for now xD
Indescriptive topic names have left me in despair!
scratch that, thefirst track isn't DnB, not sure why I said that
Due to a rather good number of people asking for an extension, and the fact the thread just got plugged in today *last day to submit ;D* We will be accepting submissions until the 28th!
WITH THAT SAID!
Judges, PLEASE PLEASE, start your judging now, make a list, modify or add as new submissions come through, i'm hoping this extra time will give those users the time they need to get something together.
REMEMBER, THE 28TH 23:59:59 IS TEH NEW DEADLINE, THERE WILL BE NO EXTENSIONS AFTERWARDS.
I mean come on, whats the point after Pico day :P?
does that mean we can edit the submissions we already put? just to be fair... i didn't have time to extend what i submitted and this would be clutch.

Sure, edit, expand away. Better quality tracks = win.
