Rules:
Make a song that blows me away. I judge based on mixing/mastering quality, song structure, melody complexity, and other difficult production techniques (can be things like neuro basses, homemade sounds, etc). The song can be any genre and will be me and a few other judges (to be determined). Competition starts TODAY and ends in 2 weeks, the 1st of February. Post your song here before that date. Judging may take 5-7+ days depending on how long all the judges take to PM me their vote.

Prizes:
1st place: $72.20 via my ad earnings. Tom Fulp will assist with the reward when the competition is over.
2nd place: If there are enough entries, a year of NG supporter status
3rd place: If there are enough entries, a month of NG supporter status

Wanna be a judge?
Cool, PM me! I prefer moderators or established NG members, but if you feel qualified to judge then still PM me.

I'll review every entry. Good luck!

-Nate

Eh, there are no restrictions on length. Maybe just keep it above 2 minutes

Is this going to be done through the ad revenue share system on NG?
I am tempted to join, even if all I have to offer is, uh... nowt much.

Are remixes allowed? Had one in mind already I wanted to do, will be making from scratch though, no sampling. And planning to make it pretty different from the original
