Changes since MC5
So you want to be a Music Contest entrant?
And why not? Entering in MC6 will get you reviews from professionals and
novices alike. Their reviews will be honest and objective, since they have
no idea who you are. Your music will be released at the end of the contest,
and you even have a chance of qualifying for the second round and getting some
fame and fortune out of it!
If you really want to get the most out of your MC6 entry, here are a few
hints and tips to help raise your score. Some of these 'hints' are really
rules--if you break them, you will be disqualified. Other ideas are just that: ideas. Don't take them too seriously. However, Music Contest has shown in the
past that these things are the stuff of good music, and if you ignore them, you
risk being marked down for it. But it's you're choice, in the end. Better to
ignore a suggestion than to never have read it in the first place.
We hope you find this document useful. And we hope your music will be the
better for it! Good luck, Music Contest entrant!
Acquaint yourself with the rules. Breaking any
of them may disqualify your song (read: "will disqualify your song").
Some things need to be clarified, however:
While these next few things are not rules, they are highly recommended.
Judges are not required to have super machines with lots of memory. Thus,
the following suggestions will help your song appeal to more judges. You'll get
more reviews, and the reviews you get will be more accurate.
The rest of this document is nothing but suggestions. They're just
observations of what makes a song more popular, and nothing more. They are
not rules, and you don't have to do any of these things.
