Competition: All Hail the fine weather!
« on: March 27, 2019, 04:28:21 pm »
hi guys,

We kick off a new competition!
This time, you will praise the sun, the fine weather and the good times spring and summer will bring you. Sun-beach-fun-campfires-nostalgic memories-....you name it!

There aren't much restraints but it's a solo operation (no collabs), we start on April 1st and you've got till the end of June to enter.

covers, original, instrumentals, vocals, mashups, whatever; as long as you convey the joy of spring and summer!

Drop your entries here


Winners to be announced about two weeks after the closing date. (so halfway July).
There will be an update later on; I reckon Justin will have a few nice prizes up his sleeve! :)

Good luck!

Having achieved my goal of entering the competition until I met Justin himself, I had decided not to inflict my musical musings on the good folk of the competition thread any further.

Now I wonder...  ;)

Thanks Lieven.

While I and other members in the southern hemisphere are feeling the change of seasons as we head to winter, I am comforted that our winter is nothing at all as severe as what you all experience  ;D 

But by the time this contest closes, will have no need for  8)

Like Gareth, will open my mind for some inspiration on the summer theme ...

No worries, Lieven.  I'm happy to sing a summery song whenever ... can do with cheer in mid-winter to remind of us summer :)

Well, maybe I'll be inspired, given I'm currently in Barbados.

On the other hand, I may just have another rum punch...

Cheers,

Keith

Good luck everyone.
Looking forward to hearing the entries.
Will have to give this one a swerve - me and joy don't mix too well. :)

Hi, I'm a relative newbie on this site, but interested in participating as much as possible.  First of all, I live in New Zealand, where we are just leaving our period of fine weather, and heading into winter.  Still, maybe I can muster up something to submit in remembrance of the warm sunny weather.  Second, I'm a bit confused about this challenge.  I thought we were supposed to be having a monthly challenge, but it looks like this one goes until the end of June, so maybe it's a 6-monthly challenge.  Do I understand this correctly (just for future reference)?  And also I'm a bit confused about who is actually organizing these challenges:  Can anyone just propose a challenge and state the goals and submission deadlines here on the forum?

Hi sunjamr

You have right name for this episode of the competition!
 8)

It used to be monthly.
It is now quarterly.
It is organised by Justin, Lieven & myself.
There are several threads spanning the entire period of the competition from its first inception to present that outline the rules etc plus all updates on how the rules have developed and evolved over time.
There are also archives of all previous entries with winning entries in their own thread.
I look forward to hearing your leaving-Summer-behind summer song!

Thanks, I am now enlightened.  I guess I need to be thinking of some happy blues, which seems like an oxymoron (I can't believe I even know what that means).
