Represent A Country 3 [Contest] 2009-11-02 11:08:28
Once again it's time for the countries to do battle.
The RAC (Represent a Country) Contest is a contest in which the audio artists of Newgrounds can pick a country and represent it using their music skills. Last years winner was DJ Trancite, who represented Switzerland. You do not have to live in the country you want to represent and the track you create can be of any genre. Just, please make sure you read the rules and follow them.
The semi-final for the contest will be aired on the Radiogrounds Stream on the 4th December. The Final will be aired on the 5th.
1. The Submissions are allowed to be of any Music Genre.
2. The entering song is not allowed to be a cover version, and is not allowed to sample another artist's work.
3. The minimum Time limit of the song is 2:30 (minutes) the maximum length of the track is 4:00 (minutes)
4. If more than one person applies for a country both entrants must face off in the semi-final. You cannot chose a country that has already been selected by a member of the "Big 3". (Read on for details)
5. The song must not be offensive or contain strong language.
6. All tracks must be in by December 2nd, prefferably submitted before. If you have to delay your track a few days you must tell me before that date.
The contest will be judged by many annonymous people, some will be NG artists, however, most aren't. They all have different tastes in music and are asked by me due to their fairness and honesty. No genre has a better chance of winning, everyone has a fair chance.
Your submissions will be scored out of 10 in the following Categories; Representation, Originality, instrumentation, musicality and entertainment. The Judges scores will then be added and turned into points for the artists.
There are another two ways you can also get points. The first is the contestant poll, contestants are allowed to list their top 5 entries from the contest (not including their own). Once again these will be turned into points. After all the entries from the contest are aired viewers of the show will also be able to vote to get their favourite artists more points.
People who regularly take part in the RAC contests have the chance to pick a country they want to represent before everyone else. Other contestant are not allowed to apply for these countries either. The first two members of the "Big 3" are decided by the scores they gain in ever contest they enter. Regular RAC contestants scores are combined and they are put into a table, the two regulars with the highest scores gain a spot in the "big 3".
The Third member is the winner of the previous contest, in this case DJ Trancite was not reachable, therefore the person who came second was then offered a place.
The Top 3 are as Follows:
