Steemit Open Mic Week 76 - Record Your Performance And Win Steem - Sponsored By @pfunk And @luzcypher

in openmic •  9 months ago

Steemit Open Mic is an online, live music venue to give musicians a chance to share their music with the Steemit community and get their music heard. It is growing larger every week thanks to all of you.

I want to thank all the talented people that have made the Open Mic contest such a joy to host. It is a pleasure listening to everyone's music and getting to know you guys. Steemit is SO cool like that.

NOTE TO SCAMMERS: I have closed most of the holes scammers have found to cheat the contest except for one. Now people are stealing valid entries from the current week and entering it as their own thinking that because the person in the video says the words Steemit Open Mic Week (current week number) that I will not notice it was already entered. This is the worst form of cheating possible and I have started flagging those caught doing this.

From now on, anyone entering Open Mic must say Steemit Open Mic Week Number (current week number) and their username to have a valid entry. This is to stop scammers from stealing your video and entering it as their own.

You can follow the Open Mic Trail and support everyone who enters including yourself. Click on:

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 76" 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.

From now on, anyone entering Open Mic must say Steemit Open Mic Week Number (current week number) and their username to have a valid entry. This is to stop scammers from stealing your video and entering it as their own.

If your song is an original song by you it is very important you put the word "original" in the title and "originalmusic" as the second tag of your post

Here is an example of a correctly titled post.

These requirements make it easier for judges and curators to find your posts and reward you for original songs. Ignoring these requirements only hurt your chances of earning rewards.

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 76" 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 76 at the start of it.

.

How To Enter Steemit Open Mic Night

  • In a well lit quiet room, use your cell phone to record your performance. See recording tips here and here

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!

Thank you for the positive support from the Steemit community and special thanks to @kevinwong for his guidance, encouragement and support and @verbal-d for writing a song that inspired the idea and @pfunk for helping and supporting Open Mic.

Please contact @luzcypher in SteemitChat for any further questions you may have and you can post your entry there too. https://steemit.chat/channel/openmic
