Hello! Thank you for completing the Newgrounds Underdogs Audio Contest 2016. All you have to do to receive your results is to provide your name, address, phone number, and social security number below!

I’m kidding. But seriously, don’t you just hate those misleading online IQ tests? :D Also, if you STILL don't know what the NGUAC is, it doesn't really matter because the contest is over...but you can still figure it out here!

THE WINNERS:

1st Place: @FinnMK

2nd Place: @PirateCrab

3rd Place: @Papkee

4th – 14th, in that order: @1f1n1ty, @X3MbeRx, @Noisysundae, @Sebastien01, @Ggaero, @Daveisgr81, @AeronMusic, @Demon-Wolf, @Verbicidemusic, @EverReverb, and @Adieuwinter.

IF YOU’RE IN THE TOP THREE: @Step will make sure the winning submissions are featured prominently on the audio portal from August 29th to September 5th, so we all owe him a huge show of gratitude. I’m also greatly in debt to @Decky, the guru artist who custom-designed the winning forum signatures for the top 3. If you’re in the top 3, please PM me your email address ASAP so that I can send you your forum sig when it’s ready. :D

I owe more than a few favors to the judges. They invested an incredible amount of energy and passion into analyzing the worth of your musical efforts (and in a relatively timely manner, I might add) for about 150 tracks in total this year. Furthermore, they were selected to judge this competition partly because they're also amazing musicians, so go check out their stuff: @Johnfn, @Lockyn, @Phonometrologist, @Phyrnna, @Samulis, @SkyeWint, @Trunotfals, and @ZipZipper.

Lastly, I'd like to thank everyone who contributed a track, was involved in the administrative process, or even simply followed or supported the competition in any way. Only in an amazingly accepting, talented, and collaborative community such as Newgrounds can someone like me pull off running a competition. Thank you all! ^_^

Good ol’ reliable @Johnfn will post the specific scores in due time. If you have questions or concerns about your scores, please PM any of the judges politely and without accusing language. All of you should be proud of your work, though. These scores are very close! If you have any suggestions for improving the contest itself, please don't hesitate to PM me! I'm very much planning on doing this contest again next year as well. ^^

Keep producing and improving, y’all! I hope you’re looking forward to next year as much as I am. :’D

Even though I didn't make the second round this was still fun to be a part of! @TaintedLogic (and many more judges) Thanks for the contest! Hope to be a part of it next year too. =D

Eh, it's cool. I'm still excited that I made it as far as I did. Thanks again, to the judges who took what I could only imagine to be countless hours out of their spare time to judge and run this thing for us, it was truly an intense and enjoyable experience. :)

Response to N G U A C 2016 Final Round Results 2016-08-22 22:25:31


Yeeowch, feel like I got judged way harsher that round! Really intrigued for some reviews to see what made it so different from the last song!

Congrats @FinnMK! Well deserved :)

You're welcome, man! And you (and everyone else who participated this year) are already on the PM list for next year. ;)

@Verbicidemusic I'd say 14 out of the original 289 is still pretty damn good. ;)

Congratulations to the winners! Good job everyone and thanks to the judges and everyone making this contest possible.
I really didn't expect a 7th place, so it's a very positive surprise for me! :D I'll be here next year for sure! ...With a song file I won't oversave on the last day!! xD


Mad, mad, mad~ ♫ This guy was the one chasing the moon, and genuinely deserves the throne! @FinnMK :D

I wish there were 2 more 6ths and the three would make a ritual for Satan.

Thanks for all the judges, and I definitely want to read your comment either via PM or review. Don't mind me for calling all of you here. @Johnfn @Lockyn @Phonometrologist @Phyrnna @Samulis @SkyeWint @Trunotfals @ZipZipper. (TaintedLogic reviewed as usual so I won't bother him.)
Didn't expect to be a finalist btw. This was too far for me. :)

Response to N G U A C 2016 Final Round Results 2016-08-22 23:31:35


Holy baloney! This is a real pleasure. Thanks to all the listeners, judges and of course @TaintedLogic for organizing and running everything. Congrats to my fellow podium-standers @PirateCrab (genuinely surprised your score wasn't higher) and @papkee. Your guys' tracks were both great and it's an honour to be ranked up with you two. It also speaks to the authenticity of the contest, I think, that the top three tracks were wildly different in terms of genre: funk/alternative/pop, metal, and classical.

While I have people's attention, I want to say a quick reminder to everyone, musicians and listeners alike, to be good and supportive to each other. Tons of us post music online for little to no audience and it's easy to get discouraged when you pour your soul into music (or any art), release it to the public, and no one seems to care. In fact, back in 2014 I got disheartened with the lack of interest in my music and stopped posting to Newgrounds. But a single message of encouragement got me to start releasing music again. It costs nothing to encourage an artist, and it may mean the world to someone to hear those words of support.

Thanks again, be supportive of each other, and keep making great music everyone!

Keep in mind last time it was only 2 judges, this time it was 7. My 10 had a LOT of pull in the previous round.

For me, it wasn't so much that it was worse, just that your other song was mindblowingly good. You still did stellar, though. #2 is pretty freaking awesome.

Uhhh...there are NINE judges in this competition. You should know this by now (???)

Jokes aside:

@Sebastien01 @Noisysundae @Papkee You're welcome! Everyone deserves a big congratulations on their achievements throughout the duration of this contest, and it truly is my pleasure to host it every year. ^^

@FinnMK I deeply appreciate that you're using your position to remind others of the constant need to be supportive of one another in this community. Thank you! :D
