If you made it through, fantastic! You've now proven to yourself and to the rest of Newgrounds that you have what it takes to compete in this contest. To those who have not, you've got some rough edges to trim out and that's ok. You are more than welcome to DM one of us through DM's or through Discord for a review to see where we think you could use some improvement. You can DM myself or @AceMantra @Jacob @SplatterDash @Troisnyx and or @VocalOutburst

 

Now… what to expect

 

Round 1 begins with 64 contestants each grouped up into groups of 4. That's right, for this round and this round only, you will be competing with 3 other contestants to continue on to round 2. The kicker is that only one person from each group will be continuing on, so you need to be on top of your game. Good luck!

 

Now, here are some rules. As of the time this post is made, you have about 2 weeks to make a song from start to finish. I'll repeat this again, but the deadline is August 9* at 11:59 PM Pacific. After that deadline, the judges will have 1 week to judge all of the songs and give a score. Eligible songs that can be entered into this contest must be your original idea, and cannot have begun before this post was made. That's right, you have to make a song from scratch starting now. The following is some clarification on what is not eligible and will make you disqualified

 

Songs must be completed before the announced deadline.

 

You are not allowed to do a remix. Either from professional work, or from something you made before, so no VIPs or previously started WIPs either

 

No covers are allowed. All of the composition needs to be of your own inspiration

 

You cannot start from a project file you've had open before the time this post was made.

 

You cannot use MIDI or audio directly ripped from another song, or video, or medium of choosing. With regards to sample usage, you can use samples so long as:

1) The samples are either public domain or Creative Commons 0.

2) The samples are under a Creative Commons Attribution - Noncommercial - Share Alike license, in which case you need to credit the creator of the samples and release your song under a license identical to that sample,

3) You have a license or permission to use samples you have legally purchased,

4) You recorded the samples yourself.

 

 

Some things to keep in mind:

 

This contest brings out the best in everyone's creativity. If you're not putting your best foot forward even if you think your talent is more than what others are bringing to the table, their efforts may surprise you.

 

We recommend that your song be no shorter than 2:30, and no longer than 6-ish minutes. Too short and it will tend to feel underdeveloped and incomplete. Making a song longer means you have to be very keen and well produced for all of that time. It's easier to do quality control for your own shorter songs than longer ones, especially in a 2 week timeframe

 

Unless you're entering as a team, this song should be your own make from start to finish. With that being said, we will allow other non-NGADM contest peers to view your final drafts before you post. Working in a song with these environments can induce ear fatigue, and the worst feeling is missing a really obvious and simple mixing or composition mistake. That being said, the more ears you have listening to it and given critique, the less it is your song on its own, so please keep it down to a minimum.

 

 

With that said good luck, and happy producing!


Groupings will be displayed later today, but those who are able to continue should be able to start producing now.
