    Welcome to this month's Popjustice Song Contest.

    It's summer 2020 and the outside world is a nightmare.

    Let's stay inside, stay safe, and share some music.

    the rules
    (from pjschq)


    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 by the provided google sheet.

    Your song will then be judged by the veto panel, if it scores 3 Yes votes it will go through to the main contest.

    If you are vetoed you will need to resubmit an entry, you must do this via google sheets and PM the host to let them know that you have sent another song.

    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 (generally under 10 pages is ok, but not in all cases)
    - 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
    - An artist that has been entered within 3 contests (Artist entered on contest 1 is banned from 2,3 & 4, becoming eligible during contest 5)
    - An artist that has been vetoed previously (Artist vetoed on contest 1 is banned from 2,3 & 4, becoming eligible during contest 5)
    - Songs that have already been entered
    - Songs from artists with large PJ thread (20+ will usually be vetoed, but not in all cases)
    - 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 (even if the contest is cancelled, original dates are respected)
    - 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.

    on the side

    This month's side theme is a tribute to this legend:

    When you submit your ballot, there's going to be an extra (optional) field where you can share your go-to comfort song - the one that you always turn to when you're having a rough day. Maybe it's a nostalgic one-hit wonder from your childhood, or an album track that you really relate to, or maybe it's a cheesy europop banger that always puts a smile on your face. Or maybe it's a gorgeous music video set in a luxe environment you just want to get lost in.

    Whatever you choose, I'll be highlighting it with your individual ballot reveals. No side contests or brackets or anything, it'll just get its own little moment in the spotlight (buy What's Your Pleasure on June 19).


    Submission: May 26 - June 4

    Voting: June 5 - June 24

    Results: June 25

    All deadlines close at 11:59 PM BST (UK time). Send me a PM if you think you'll need an extension.

  4. Oh my god what a fabulous theme, I adore having low key chill music on while I work.
  5. Great theme!

    After deciding to stick around for another contest, I almost submitted this song, which has been on my potential submissions list for at least a few months, and just now realizing it won't pass veto:

    Now I have to go with something else... another bottom 10 placement, here we go!
  6. You were considering to leave?? PJSC without @Maki is something I cannot imagine....
  7. My comfort-song might be a banger.....
  8. Hmm, do I go relaxed for both or measure out with a bop?

    I honestly have no idea what to go for...
  9. I'm ready to get points from just three voters again!!!!!!!

    I'm not seeing the extra field for the comfort song?

  11. My comfort song is kind of an easy choice. I've thought about dreamy trance (Miles' Children and Fable fit this criteria pretty well) but decided to go somewhere between bop and chill. It's one of my favorite songs of all time and my favorite from the artist I'm sending (when their music was.......... good)
  12. Can't wait to see Promises submitted by everyone again!

  16. dd you weren't the only one, I thought @CorgiCorgiCorgi had just forgotten to include the extra field in the entry form.

    Dddd I was about to come ask about the same thing. The collective failure of reading comprehension...

    If AlunaGeorge were eligible, I'd have submitted this banger ages ago:

  18. We just got too used to submitting the extra songs straightaway, after taking part in about 37 legends rounds.

  19. Well I'm back.

    Oddly enough my entry is a bit of a comfort song for me, watch it get vetoed.
