October to December 2018

Christmas Collaboration Competition.
Our first ever collaborative competition and what a delight.
Everybody that took part gave us a ll a festive treat. Well done to all 21 entrants.

Everyone is a winner too - all will be awarded a prize.
The allocation of prizes is not straight-forward but Justin, Lieven and I have almost devised the method by which to ensure that all get a prize and that all get a choice of prize also.
Please watch this space and look for announcements plus private messages in the very near future explaining this.


Congratulations to:


1st Place - Run Run Rudolph

schlaffenwagen/ KasperFaurby / Batwoman / Balamuthia / Cagn On Rocks (and Ju)

 
2nd Place - Silent Night
Digger / Katja

3rd Place - Christmas Baby (Please Come Home)
DavidP / pkboo3 / max_mue

4th Place - All I Want For Christmas (Is You)
Garfield (& Kerrie)

5th Place - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
diademgrove / redrhodie (& Dave)

6th Place - The Last Snowflake
BrianLarsen / FourTwo (& Chris)

7th Place - White Christmas
Embishop / KristaR



The ranking was done by firstly counting the number of likes (1 like = 1 point) that each entry had been awarded, then Justin, Lieven and Close2u awarded points from 7 to 1 for their choices. The points were then totalled and the entries given a place from 1st to 7th accordingly.

These competitions are just becoming a jewel, a treasure, a delight. We are blessed to have such a wonderful and diverse range of recordings to listen to.
The listening is easy and enjoyable. The judging is so, so difficult.
LievenDV, close2u and Justin are being forced in to awkward decisions and there are no fixed, objective criteria we can apply.

So, for the competition period April - June  2019


1st
aloise1 - I Hear My Own Music

Congratulations!
Prize : a SKYPE session with Justin




Some well deserved honourable mentions also go to:


Original song & Production:

FourTwo - Hard To Beat


LBro - Seattle Synthetic Summer


Progress:

pkboo3 - Pontoon


Fun and the summer spirit:

Garfield - Little Grass Shack


One-take live performance (and transcription)

kontenda - Nightswimming

 :) :)

AT long last ... and this announcement must start with a massive apology for the length of time between the deadline, the judging and the final decision.
It is no way a slight or a comment on the entrants and their efforts.
Because it is undoubtedly the case that all of the entries were, in their own way, huge and positive endorsements of the work, progress and burgeoning musicianship of all.

So ... let it now be known ...

For the competition period July - September  2019


1st
DanniTSI3 - The Letter

Congratulations!
Prize : a SKYPE session with Justin

Some well deserved honourable mentions also go to:

embishop - Tears In Heaven

john256 - High and Dry

pkboo3 - Stuck In The Middles With You

redrhodie - Honesty
