Entries are in for the Musk Jam! Please take some time this week to watch and vote on as many as you can; your input helps with the judging process.
To encourage more voting, we’re offering Double XP for the remainder of June; this means you can vote on at least ten items per day and log 20 XP.
Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch
The NGADM is starting up this week, with an audition round that will run until July 13th. After the auditions, 64 musicians will battle it out in a four stage tournament to determine the champion.
We’d like to have some nice cash prizes for the winner and finalists this year so we’re asking for donations from anyone who wants to contribute! So far @Jacob has pitched in $100, @Spadezer gave $50 and @Wegra, $10. I tossed in another $100 bringing us to $260 currently.
To contribute to the prize pool, make a donation and PM me with a heads up that you’ve donated towards the NGADM. Your name will be included in a list of sponsors wherever the prize totals are mentioned.
