So here´s the idea:

In this contest, you can choose any genre you want for the song you write, as long as the song is mainstream accessible. The main theme of the contest is to write Mainstream, yet interresting music. You can make the most chliched chord progression interresting with an well-thought out arrangement, or with some not-quite-as-usual chord voicings. But keep in mind, it has to be accessible to chart well (Top 20 Position).

I want this contest to work out well, so there´ll be no dead line enhancing until no one bothers anymore, and no long discussion even if one hasn´t submitted his piece yet. When the deadline is reached, the judging begins.

I will nominate myself as a judge for this competition.

I think you should have more than one judge. Maybe even three.

I'll gladly offer my services, should you need them, which I think you do. But then, it really is up to you, since it's your thread.

That´s the point of signing up, Butt Rayge So that everybody who wants to help can help, as a competitor or judge. Deadline will be the 5th of December, so you have exactly a month to work on your pieces.

Well, your piece should have the qualities to reach a top chart position, but you are not supposed to cover any song of today´s top 20 charts or anything like that.

Are you going to put a limit on the amount of entries?

I think we should cut it off soon.

That's a pretty hefty list so far.
#21
I think I´ll give 1 or 2 more days to sign up, and then cut the line, if you want.

Sure, so long as we don't end up with a million contestants in that time.

We've got 10 so far. Should we make a maximum just in case?
#23
Well, I don´t expect many competitors signing up this late, but we can have a 15 people limit if you want.

It´s a shame that this is the problem of most of the competitions in this forum, but what can I say, I kind of expected this.

I have a feeling it's because they think it won't be good enough.

Because I for one pretty much write stuff non-stop (within reason). Although most of it probably wouldn't be applicable for this competition.
