NOTE: IGNORE THE RULE ABOUT 18+, it's 13+ now so younger artists are allowed.

AIM 2018! We're back for the 5th year, I thought this would be a good alternative to reading the rules in case anyone preferred listening to them in an audio podcast, but may be easier to read. Below are some handy links to the contest and such.

NG Audio Portal Rules: : http://www.newgrounds.com/wiki/help-information/terms-of-use/audio-guidelines
Here's the contest submission thread: https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1431735
Here's the contest discussion thread: https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1431736

you're welcome :) good luck!

Nice podcast

Cool this was nice to see that you do a podcast here and I must say you have a nice "VOICE" very good for animations and stuff, but I will say that this was much better and hope people could hear the rules and such reading a whole bunch of stuff is probably not fun but hearying it like this was a good idea so props to you on this podcast.

None needed its your own podcast.


ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

Thanks! Just keeping in mind the 18+ rule is now 13+ that's the only change really.

Good pace, and good info, though I was most curious about the deadline after the contest start... quick read in the mentioned topic it's all the way till July huh! :D Good time frame. Looking forward to seeing what great stuff this spawns.


ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

I believe I mentioned that in the podcast too. Thanks.

Super stoked!

I'm also curious, what mic are you using?

May help to add a link to both threads in the descrip here, as well as the NG AP rules.

I'm half asleep. If something super important comes up I'll poke ya.

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

Thanks! A blue yeti XLR mic with PreSonus Audiobox 22VSL (phantom-power device the mic runs through). I'll add them in the description when I post them tonight. Gotcha.

Aww yeah! I'm pumped. Background music fits really well, yet isn't too distracting. You covered a lot of ground in this podcast too, not just the rules. I think the scouted artist requirement is a particularly good idea. Looking forward to reading the entire set of rules. ;)

ThatJohnnyGuy responds:

Thanks! That's actually the entire set lol. But always good to read the post when I post it too.
