Is the deadline on the 28th at midnight (I.E As soon as the 28th starts), or at 11:59 pm (I.E As soon as the 28th ends)?

Enjoy :)

I'm not trying to spam my audition, I promise. I noticed that all the auditions are links to music within the audio portal, so I decided to upload my song to the audio portal. If this is an inconvenience I do sincerely apologize! Thanks!

Working on another song that might (hopefully) be used as my audition, but if I can't make it in time, then accept this:

http://soundcloud.com/rhythmbastard/wanderin-johnny

It's an update version of a song that's already on NG. In the coming days I'll try to put that version on NG.

Actually, never mind that question -- I think I'll end up having to submit on the 27th anyway.

Well, since Echo didn't clarify this in the first post, it's probably best to accept submissions till the 28th at 11:59 PM NG Time. Any submissions after that won't be accepted.

Does anyone know how many entries there have already been?

Too lazy to count them myself :3

You read my mind -- also, for comparison's sake, last year there were 110 auditions.

Y'all should bump the number of participants from 32 to 64, or even 128 if there's enough entries. I'm sure the NGADM is well-recognized enough, and it'd be a very nice challenge for everyone. As a former NGADMer, I hope you consider it.

I'm posting my audition tomorrow, I don't know what I want to submit because I like my new stuff better but I never went out of my way to get exposure, hah.

That's explained on the first page:

Because we're not superhuman alien cyborg things that can handle 64 (or 128) competitors at a go (and because 32 is a nice safe round number :3).

Think of all the reviews they would have to write! In order to do what you're suggesting, they would need more judges.

...but. I'm a superhuman alien cyborg thing. 64 competitors I could probably handle in 2 weeks. ...maybe.


Stuff.

Hey, as it turns out I'm really not going to be able to partake in the contest this year. No time. Sorry, hope the competition is fierce.


Sometimes, it would rain men. "Hallelujah!" we would cry. Thousands were killed.

Aw, alright :(. *rubs you off from my list of 32 choices*

Using Kirbyfemur's count on page 7... 182.

Oh and last year there was 111 auditions, not 110, silly :3.

Yeah man, like the others said, that won't be easy. A feasible solution is to split the competition into two groups of 32 like we did in the 2009 NGADM and then pit the winners of each group against each other at the end. This would work if we had at least one other organiser and six other judges taking care of the other group (since - sorry to disappoint - we're actually not superhuman alien cyborg things, haha) but we don't have that.

But like I said, if there's anyone here who doesn't make it in and has enough initiative, feel free to set up a separate NGADM for the people who didn't make it in. It was a success last year, and this year it's a lot harder to get in with almost 200 auditions so it could be even more successful this time round.

Yeah, I read that and I understand. The answer is simply getting more judges. Come on, NG is -huge-. Surely, some people wouldn't mind offering themselves for a once-a-year event that is slowly gaining more and more recognition. You gotta adapt to change and think big.

There's my audition. I wouldn't mind being a judge though, Steph knows me pretty well.

Damn it! So that's why i am not able to find their old posts and remove the track they posted.... So there probably will be 3-4 tracks on my list that aren't even there anymore lol
