The deadline to submit your entry is Monday. 18th of December 2017. Please have the song posted by then so we have time to review them all.
@meno graciously offered to sponsor this fantastic, music-making, creativity-sparking, songwriting challenge by providing a new guitar with hard case to one, lucky winner!
The contest will run for 8-weeks and each week we will provide a theme. You will write a new song about or related to that theme.
This challenge will require you to write up to 8 new songs, one per week. This is the challenge.
We will provide the theme each week and make it a bit uncommon so songwriters will not be able to pull previously written songs from their repertoire.
They will actually have to write a song based on the theme we provide and have a little less than a week to write each song.
So, are you up for the challenge? A shot to win that guitar?
Keep reading to discover how it works.
Open Mic Songwriters Challenge Rules
Following these rules is very important so your posts can get curated, upvoted, and seen by the Open Mic community.
The contest will run for 8 weeks. Each week will have a new theme. Songwriters will write one new song each week using the theme we provide.
Songwriters can join at any time, but the sooner you join the more points you'll accumulate, making your chances to win a little better. Don't worry, be happy.
Submit Original Music Written For This Challenge Only and related to each week's theme that we'll provide.
You can enter Steemit Open Mic and the Open Mic Songwriters Challenge with the same entry. Just say it is for both at the start of your video. Ad a link to your post to both contests. Better yet, make 2 posts, one for each contest.
No covers, no parodies, or no cover versions will be considered as a valid entry.
You can sing in any language but the lyrics must be posted on your post in the language it is sung in plus in English using Google Translate.
OpenMic Songwriters Challenge Week 4 must be the start of the title of the post, this is key so that judges can easily find the entries.
You must say “OpenMic Songwriters Challenge Week 4” at the beginning of your video so we know you are really playing live for us for this contest (Adding an edit to a prerecorded video just to add the words is not good enough. It must be said out loud by the person performing the song just prior to performing it. Recording the words and editing it to the beginning of a video still does not prove it was really you)
Live performances only. No studio recorded tracks. Recording quality is not being judged. You can record it on your phone.
openmic & openmicsongwriters must be your first and second tag respectively. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT
Add a link to your entry post to the comments of the contest post published by @luzcypher so we know you entered. That's this post.
Lyrics must be included in your post If the song is sung in another language, the lyrics must be posted in both English and the language it is sung in.
Upvote the Open Mic Songwriters Challenge weekly post posted by @luzcypher
Give a high five to @meno because this is SO COOL!
All songs must be about the week’s theme, entries not related to the theme will not be considered as valid.
