It's about that time again, everyone... Time for the SONG CONTEST ROUND 66! 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. Spoiler: Will my song be vetoed? 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?
