More Open Mic Sponsors

Over the last week Open Mic was contacted and offered some more sponsorship from:

@ausbitbank is a top 20 witness on Steemit involved in more supporting projects on the Steem blockchain than I can list. He is a big part of the minnowsupportproject.org, the Peace, Abundance, and Liberty network on Discord, and delegates to many good causes on Steemit. You can vote for him as a wtness here. He just reached out and donated 100 Steem per week to help Open Mic

@Curie helps curate new people who contribute good content and has been supporting Open Mic musicians behind the scenes since Open Mic started. They helped me and countless others get our posts seen when we first started on the platform. Many Open Mic musicians have been featured on their weekly Author's Showcase posts. They are a top 20 witness and have contributed 25 Steem per week for the next two months to help Open Mic. You can vote for them as witness here

@steemcreative is a witness run by @swelker101 and @isaria and they host a weekly program with @krystle at MSP-Waves radio that features the weekly Top 5 judges picks from Steemit Open Mic. Not only do they give weekly prizes to audience picked performers from the contest, but they have also started sponsoring Open Mic with a 25 Steem weekly donation! How cool is that? Thank you for helping support musicians on the Steemit platform. You can vote for them as witness here


Special thanks to @lukestokes for his delegation of 5,000 SP to the @openmic account. This helps each entry earn a little more for their performances.

  • Steemit Open Mic Loves Dtube So Why Do I Have To Add A Youtube Video To My Open Mic Entry --- by @luzcypher

    NOTE: While we used to allow acapella performances to get in, recently there have been too many entries from singers without any musicians. Open Mic is a community of musicians and for this reason, tickets without a musical instrument will not be considered a valid entry. NO KARAOKE

    Entries must follow these rules to earn prizes. For a more in-depth understanding of the rules read, What Are The Rules To Enter Steemit Open Mic And Why Do We Have Rules Anyways

    Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.

    It is very important to say the words "Steemit Open Mic Week 108" AND YOUR USERNAME at the beginning of your recorded video. Posts without those words spoken in the beginning of your live, recorded video do not qualify for prizes.

    Here is an example of a correctly titled post.

    Steemit Open Mic Process

    Keeping it short and sweet, here is the flow of considerations for the Steemit Open Mic contest:-

    • Need to promote community participation in the spirit of Steemit Open Mic night.

    • So.. Steemit Open Mic submissions in comments, community voting and reblogging are encouraged.

    • However, we need to avoid public vote abuse and keep a certain standard for Steemit Open Mic night.

    • So.. community voting as the first filter, before internal voting.
    • Another problem: late submissions are usually disadvantaged as they get less attention on the contest post.
    • So.. we've tried to mitigate such a problem by including unique votes of Steemit Open Mic submissions in their own blog posts.
    • IT IS CRUCIAL WHEN YOU RECORD YOUR VIDEO THAT YOU SAY "STEEMIT OPEN MIC WEEK 108" AND YOUR USERNAME AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR VIDEO

    • We're looking for real live musical performances for this contest. Some people have posted old videos from YouTube and it's difficult to verify that it's really them performing. They will be disqualified from the contest.

    • If you want a chance to earn the prize, make a new video and say STEEMIT OPEN MIC Week 108 at the start of it.

    .

    How To Enter Steemit Open Mic

    New Music Category Communities

    Music Category communities are coming together on Steemit and if you're a music lover, please show support and join in the fun. Here are a few new places to find great music.

    Suggestion: openmic must be the first tag to enter open mic, but adding other music-related tags (such as music, music-trail) may help your post get more attention and perhaps even get curated by those music curators.

    If your song is an original song, add orginalmusic as your 2nd tag. This will help curators know it is an original song which currently pays a Steem bonus to you.

    Thank you all for the participation!
