I will be holding a contest for musicians. It will be open to everyone, there is no bard or bard questor requirement, but I'm assuming that most entries will be from them.
I have some exiles helping me judge, and They will help me decide on the best piece in each category, There are prizes for evey instrument out there. Bone Flute, Ocarina, Reed Flute, Torjo, Gitor, Starbuck Harp, Conch, Orga Drum, Casserole, Lucky Lyra, Xylo, Vibra, Tuborn, Bagipes, and Violené. There are some extras and these will be given away to runners up, or perhaps as a door prize.
Musicians are allowed to enter as many categories as they want, but please only 1 entry per instrument. You can write a solo, duet or trio, if it is a duet or trio, you must specify which instrument the song will be judged with. The same song cannot be in more the one different category. These rules might change if there are too many entries, or not enough entries.
I ask to please keep true to the Bard Guild rules, and that the music is an original work by you. If I have heard the song before I will probably not give it as high a score as if I had never heard it, so I encourage all you musicians out there to write new music.
I will be accepting entries from now, April 14th, to June 1st. I will be planning a concert for some time after that. The entries will be played, and prizes handed out at the concert.
Please send your entries to me at jeffDOTgansATgmailDOTcom
I'm sure there is more that I am forgetting, so I may be making some changes to this over time. Feel free to ask questions if anything is unclear.
Thanks, and Good Luck.
Yes you can submit a song in every category, but the instrument must be used in the song if it is to be entered for that category. For example, a song using the Starbuck Harp, the Gitor, and the Orga Drum could be submitted to one of those 3 categories. And please, 1 entry per category.Root the Red wrote:Can a person submit a song in every category?
Do songs submitted in an instrument's category have to be played in that istrument?
