Contest Rules & Guidelines
When is the deadline for submissions?
Videos will be accepted until December 14, 2016 at 11:59pm PST.
What will judges be looking for?
We want to see you BE CREATIVE! As long as you keep the melody and lyrics the same, feel free to get creative with it. You can transpose, create your own arrangement, add instruments, sing it in another language - or not sing at all! You can make an instrumental version, dance, do sign language, make something completely unexpected... whatever you do best! You can shorten or lengthen the song if you want to add your own twist, as long as the melody is in there, and feel free to have fun with the video production too (you don't need to sing live in the video if you want to pre-record your vocals).

Please note that we are looking for new creations, not karaoke-style singing along to a backing track (not that there's anything wrong with that!). We want you to push your boundaries creatively, and show us something unique and fun! You can create backing instrumentals, or multi-track a cappella like I do, or work with another person who does those things to come up with something awesome together!
When will the winner be announced?
Winners will be announced December 21, 2016.
Who can enter?
The contest is open to everyone of any age, located anywhere in the world (that means you)! You can enter as an individual, group, choir -- whatever works best for you!.
How do I learn the song?
I've provided the song arrangements for various voice parts and instrumental, as well as midi learning tracks for each. Just sign up above to download the files!
