Welcome to the 2018 Newgrounds Underdogs’ Audio Contest, the 5th rendition of an annual music competition on the site.

Cool! So I should PM you, like, 5 of my tracks, right?
Um...no. Just link the (one) piece you want the judges to consider in this thread. For this round, it can be something you wrote years ago, or you can make it from scratch specifically for the competition. You can also change the piece you’d like us to judge by expressing your desire to change it and providing a link to your new piece.

How long do I have to enter?
Until 23:59 (11:59 p.m.) Eastern Daylight Time on July 15th, 2018

Okay. Then what?
Immediately after the tryout submission phase, the participants will be grouped evenly based on their fan totals, and about half of them will be accepted into the next round. Participants won’t directly compete outside of their groups until the Final Round. There are 3 rounds over the course of about 2 months.

What’s in it for me?
Prizes will include forum signatures for the top 3 finishers boasting of their success in the competition, as well as spots on the front page of the Audio Portal the week after the competition. You can also expect to LEARN A TON ABOUT MUSIC, meet a lot of awesome people, and gain some more exposure on the site.

So how do I bribe the judges?
You don’t. But you can know who they are ahead of time: @Bosa, @Kwing, @SleepFacingWest, and myself have all joined the team so far. We’re also still looking for judges, so please PM me if you’d like to nominate one. For the sake of avoiding over-indulgence, please don’t nominate yourself.

Nice! So I can just upload a meme compilation as my submission, right?
Hahaha...not even close. PLEASE READ THE COMPLETE LIST OF RULES that couldn’t fit in this forum post. When in doubt, always ask for clarification.
But above all, remember to have a ton of fun! The competition is set to begin…….RIGHT THE HECK NOW! >:D

It was difficult choosing a song, so just went for this I guess

First 5 submissions are in! Nice.

Also, if anyone was trying to get in touch with me and saw that my PM inbox was full, that's no longer the case. Sorry for the inconvenience. Obviously I send and receive hundreds of PMs every week during the contest, but I'll try to monitor that more closely this year. Thanks.

Yay it's back! I've actually been waiting a long time hoping for it to come back so I can try again.

Fun Fact: I actually recreated the "Alan Walker" sounding pluck, it's not the best but I think it's close enough. I just wanted to throw this fact in so that no one would think I was using synthesizers like Sylenth1.

I can't even use VST's even if I wanted to, but it's fine. In my opinion, it's a lot better to make your own instruments.

Beware that whenever the sun rays touch my skin i will pop like a flower and show my true colors.

Oh and you might see me play rocket league lol

Oh yes, I'll have a shot at this again! Spent a while deciding which track to send, ended up choosing this one! :DD

Here's my Tryouts submission. Part of my upcoming Night Bloom EP :^)

I'll admit that the mastering is off as well as the compression. I've improved since then in that area since May however I still don't see myself as good at it yet.
