Blockchain Music Contest Round 2!
10 Days To Enter And Earn Points!
Time to shake things up a bit, and throw a new music contest into the mix for the New SMA! So welcome one and all to the Blockchain Music Contest! This will be a multi-platform contest, so if you are on Steemit, Whaleshares, WeKu it's all good.
For the 2nd round, we are going to go with the theme of Festival Music. So no limits on what you can do with this round, so bring your A Game, and Your Imagination! Could be Rap, Metal, EDM... what ever is your go to, roll with it.
Speaking of Imagination, Picture it... You are headlining on the main stage at your Festival... You got the crowd eating out of the palm of your hand... It's time to show them what you working with! What is Your Encore Song? What Song Has Your Name All Over It? That is what we are looking for this round, so bring it!
This should be a fun challenge for all, and we are looking forward to hearing some Awesome Entries!
You will have Ten(10) days to produce your entry!
The official contest days are: November 14th 2018 to November 24th 2018 at 11:59 PM EST! That leave us 3 days to judge the entries, and get the winners selected. Winners will be announced on November 28th 2018. Each new round will be on a 14 day schedule, so keep your eyes peeled for new information about new rounds.
Posting Your EntriesThe preferred method for uploading your song is DSound, the decentralized sound platform harnessing the power of the STEEM blockchain. Dsound and @prc is a big supporter of SMA and music contests on the Blockchain, and is an official sponsor of this contest.
When you are making your post about your song, might be a very good idea to let us all know the story behind it, including what DAW you use, plus plugins, and what ever else you do to make the magic happen... just sayin... hint hint! Be sure to include the tag: blockchainmusic on Steemit, Whaleshares and WeKu and etc.
And whatever blogging platform you decide to go with, once you get it all together, make sure that you drop a link in the contest room in the SMA Discord Server, which you can find right here! Look for blockchain-music-contest in contest land, and hit us with that 411!
And seeing as how there is a 7 day period for song uploads, it is also suggested that use a backup for the judges to hear your song. Feel free to use Choon or SoundCloud as a back up source. If we cannot hear your song, we can't give you points... And we cannot play it on the Live Show.. just sayin!

FIRST PLACE WINNER: 10 SBD + 50 Whalecoin + 40 Points
