Righto. Here are the rules.

Each contestant will submit a voice clip. Half the clip will be reading a passage in the contestants normal accent, and the second half will be the contestant reading a passage in the accent of their choice. THESE ARE IMPRESSIONS

Anyone can submit a clip, as long as it fits the criteria. I also need judges, read below for more!

Assuming I get enough interest, I'll let people sign up and record for a month, the deadline being November 23rd, by which point I'll go to everyone's profile who signed up and link it to another thread, where the judges who signed up to judge will correspond amongst themselves, to pick the top 10 contestants. After that, hopefully, I'll have another thread that will have the top 10 sign ups as a poll, where all of UG can vote.


You can read anything you want, as long as it's between 1:30 and 2:30 seconds. Transcribing it is optional. Judges, consider this almost like judging an acting. Give bonus points for making it sound real.

Let's see how it goes.

So we got Smellykid and Hugh to judge.

cam_sambell- you understand that you're trying to do an accent that's not your actual one. I'm not quite sure what you're post meant.

i think when people say 'working class English accent' there should be a reigon specified becuase there isnt a single 'English' accent.
e.g would it be a working class East Midlands accent or a working class North London accent, becasue they are totally different.

In. Can I read from My Immortal as my entry?

EDIT: My normal accent is california native, so it's really a non-accent. I'd like to enter as some sort of british accent.

Whatever you want to read about man.

British accent? Anyone you want, you don't really need to declare it, but it would help.

I'm doing a West-London accent.

Kick ass idea.

I'd like to judge the person who offers to try out a South African accent. I love listening to it, and I have a tiny bit of experience with it, as well.

I would give it a go but i have no way of recording my voice, sorry guys.

I'd like to think I know enough about accents to judge properly. I have no way of recording myself so I can't offer my voice box (and I personally suck at doing the majority of accents), but you can gladly have my angry criticisms.

I can do East New Yorker City hood to Italian wiseguy to Southern AZ mexican immigrant to florida cuban to different UK dialects ranging from different parts of England, Ireland, and Scotland. I can do an aussie accent, but from what part I am not sure, to a stereotypical Laos-asian and westside cali gangster to Eastern European-preferably Russian.

I can also do southern american country twang either white dialect or black. These are accents i'm fairly confident in doing. I can do them all if you wish or pick which ones. I don't care.

No.

You give me an example of your normal accent, and then try and imitate another accent completely.

Russian is what you should do.
