Steemit Open Mic Prizes Are Temporarily Reduced Until Further Notice

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.

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 86" 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 86 at the start of it.

.

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!

I hope you like it! Thanks to all of you who make this amazing community event possible!

Inspired by mothers month; The Pied Piper Antonio Sojo and my person want to pay homage to all the mothers of Openmic and the platform in general through one of the most emblematic and versioned themes of the remembered composer Juan Gabriel as it is "eternal Love" in an instrumental version with Arrangements for flute and acoustic guitar.

Version of the theme of the master harpist Juan Vicente Torrealba "The Filly Zaina", Story of a mare (female horse) Savage who lived in a herd of Venezuelan plains and that can perfectly be compared with a woman difficult to conquer and tame.

Agradecido nuevamente a @Luzcipher y @Pfunk en mi participación de esta semana les dejo esta versión de "La Negra Atilia" es un merengue de Pablo Camacaro, escrito en compás de 5 por 8 originalmente para canto y mandolina, pero es una pieza tan agradable y de gran exigencia, tanto rítmica como de afinación que muchos se han visto tentados a adaptada para varios instrumentos, es el caso, que en el violoncello encuentra una sonoridad deliciosa por su gran registro y versatilidad que asemeja la voz humana.

Pablo Camacaro, Compositor nacido en Carora edo Lara, 2 de mayo de 1947. Es un destacado cuatrista y compositor con mas de 500 obras que abarcan casi todos los géneros de la música popular.

Special thanks to @luzcypher and @pfunk for keeping the #OpenMic contest every week!

Hello everyone.
It has been many months since my last entry in openmic.
I'm happy to be back.
My entry for openmic 86 is a song I first heard back in 1977.
I recently heard it again and decided to learn it and play it for you all.
So here is my version of the song,
"Cup Of Tea."
Thank you for listening.

This is an original song written by my songwriting partner, Dustin Taylor. It's called If I Could Try It Again. It's my entry for week 86. Thanks @luzcypher and @pfunk for running this great contest. 😎
