PJSC 66: votes due MAY 29 for main contest + Top Answer Game Round 3!

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by londonrain, May 6, 2018.

  1. It's about that time again, everyone...

    Time for the







    The Popjustice Song Contest is a music contest focused on discovering new/obscure music. Each participant picks a song by a lesser known artist or new discovery and pits this song against other unknown or new songs.

    The song you have chosen should be submitted to the host of the contest (ME!) during the submission period. During this time the veto panel will score your song out of 100 (0 being instant veto, 100 being no issues). If it averages 50+ then it will be accepted into the contest.

    There are a bunch of things that may result in a song being vetoed.

    Things that will affect your veto score, but not necessary result in a veto

    - Previously submitted artist (3 being generally the upper limit unless significant time has passed)
    - Doing well in a previous round
    - Forum threads or discussions
    - Double submission of songs
    - Multiple submission of artists
    - Reality TV contestants
    - Notable personalities (who aren't necessary singers)
    - Mentions by Popjustice on social media (outside the website)
    - Features as popjustice.com's song of the week or in a Popjustice Spotify playlist
    - Blog presence (outside popjustice.com)
    - Large view counts on YouTube (no exact science here, but upload time and international audience are taken into account)
    - Big artists in other countries
    - Lesser hits / album tracks from well known K-Pop acts
    - People with features on hits
    - Covers of lesser known songs
    - Samples of lesser known songs

    Things that will definitely be vetoed

    - Winners of the PJSC
    - Songs that have already been entered (check the list here: http://pjschq.wikidot.com/the-songs-of-pjsc)
    - 3 or more submissions of that song
    - A song that is featured on the popjustice.com front page (in a solo article) in the last 3 months (another song by the artist or remix of the same song can be chosen and may clear veto)
    - Songs involved in the current Eurovision cycle up to and including the month of the contest
    - Songs that have significant radio play (check this at http://comparemyradio.com/)
    - Covers of well-known songs
    - Samples of well-known songs
    - Big hits / big singles from well known K-Pop acts
    - Major K-Pop acts (2NE1, f(x), SHINee, Girl's Generation)

    How do I vote?

    After the song list is revealed you have a period of time where you are able to submit your votes. You should vote using the traditional Eurovision style points system (12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1) with the top marks going to your favorite, and 1 going to your 10th favorite. Remember you cannot vote for your own entry.

    Okay, @londonrain. Where do I submit my entry? Do I send it to you in a message?

    Please submit your entry using this Google form instead of sending me a message. It makes it much easier to handle the whole process! Submissions are closed, so... well, you can't.

    What's the deadline for submissions?

    The deadline is was Friday, May 11 at 23:59 Pacific time.

  2. But wait!

    There's an additional challenge, should you choose to take it up.

    And that challenge is:


    Now what, pray, is this?

    It's a game in which you get asked a bunch of simple questions ("Name a colour on the US flag") and you have to give an answer.

    Sounds easy, right?

    But wait... the twist is that you don't get points based on whether you're right or not. You get points based on how many other people gave the same answer as you did.

    So, for example, if you were asked to name a colour on the US flag, and 10 people answered "red", 20 people answered "blue", 2 people answered "white" and 5 people were drunk and answered "purple", the points distribution would be:

    Everyone who answered "red": 10 points each
    Everyone who answered "blue": 20 points each
    Everyone who answered "white": 2 points each
    Everyone who answered "purple": 5 points each.

  16. Very excited to finally be participating in PJSC 44!!!
  17. Submitted.

    Also ready for the top answers game. I think it happened last year as well, but then I didn't understand the rules very well and ended up in the bottom.

    They asked: "Name a RuPaul Drag queen." I chose Gia Gunn, but nobody else did.
