    Welcome to the 73rd round of the Popjustice Song Contest, and my first go at hosting...pretty much anything on this forum! So don't be surprised if there's a glitch or two, but I've enlisted @Lost Boy as my co-host to keep things afloat.

    Popjustice Song contest is a music contest focused on discovering new 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 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.

    Things that will effect your veto score, but not necessary 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 song
    - Multiple submission of artist
    - Reality TV contestant
    - Notable personalities (who aren't necessary singers)
    - Mentions by PJ on social media (but not on the website)
    - Features in PJSC song of the week or featured in spotify playlist
    - Blog precence (non PJ)
    - Large view counts on youtube (no exact science here, but upload time and international audience are taken into account)
    - Big artist in another country
    - 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
    - Artists that have had minor UK hits
    - Vocalists from featured producer songs (e.g. A*M*E from 100%)

    Things that will be vetoed for

    - Winners of the PJSC
    - Songs that have already been entered
    - Songs that have entered the UK top 40
    - Songs from artists that have had significant UK hits
    - 3 or more submissions of that song
    - A song that is featured on the 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 (non regional) radio play (check this via 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)
    After the song list is revealed you have 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, and remember you cannot vote for your own entry.

    SUBMIT YOUR SONG HERE

    And as you might have guessed from the...everything, this round's side theme is a Secret Santa game with a PJSC twist! If you choose to join in, you'll be secretly assigned another entrant to gift a song to. The song can be anything you want it to be (and is separate from your main entry so doesn't need to fit in with the veto rules), but lovely personalised recommendations of songs that the user will probably not have heard before but will probably like are greatly encouraged!

    The gifts will be revealed around the time of the main contest's reveal, so obviously don't give away anything about yours. Send a PM to me and @Lost Boy if you'd like to participate!

    Submissions for main contest and Secret Santa open until December 7th, 23:59 GMT. Votes due December 28th. 23:59 GMT.

    Ok I think that's everything but obviously let me know if I've missed anything out

  5. WAIT @ this opening when I get on the tram and it is impossible for me to submit my track on my sh*tty phone! Never fear - there's no way it's getting stolen by anyone here judging by my tastes HA!
     
  6. low key hoping for festive bops.
     
  7. I take this as you're back, as in wanting to win, not in an ”oh I've calculated this will sort of flop” 7th place kind of way.

    Game on?
     
  8. Saw this on the Google submission page:

    Are we doing legends this round, too?

  9. Oh no, I'm still aiming not to win.

    But in all honesty I've got nothing in my back pocket that would win (or challange) this month.

    Obligatory joke about Witness making her irrelevant enough to pass veto.
