RULES

To be eligible to win participates must:

-Be a member of The Ocarina Network. Creating an account is absolutely free of charge!

-Create an ocarina performance video playing any Christmas or holiday song and upload to Youtube.

There are no restrictions on how many ocarinas that may be used.
Backtracks and other instruments, including your voice, are welcome.
However, the ocarina must be the main instrument of the video.

Collaborations are allowed, however, if there are several members from TON that are participating in a single video that video can only be submitted once by only ONE member. The member that chooses to submit the video will be the one representing that entry.

Images are also welcomed for those who are camera-shy or simply do not have access to video recording equipment.

One entry per member.

-Provide a link to The Ocarina Network under the video's description.
http://www.theocarinanetwork.com
The video must be clearly indicated as an entry for the 2013 TONS OF FUN CHRISTMAS CONTEST!

-Provide a link to Hans Rotter's business website under the video's description:

-A link to the video and/or the video itself must be submitted to THIS thread in order to be counted.


DEADLINE

Midnight January 12th in your own timezone.


VOTING

A new thread will be created for the voting process.
The judges will be YOU! TON members will vote on what they consider the best videos to be. The voting will take place on January 13th through to January 20th.

There will be a total of seven days to vote. Every member will be able to submit a total of three votes. The first vote will count for three points, the second vote will count for two points and the last vote will count for one point. Please put your top 3 votes in one post.

A voter is allowed to changed their vote by editing their post; however, it must be changed before the voting deadline. Contestants may not vote for themselves. Any participant that votes for themselves will not be counted and the other two will be. Voting ends at midnight January 20th. Any votes submitted after the deadline will not be counted.
