Dearly beloved TON members,

I am happy to announce the TON Contest 2015, in memory of Mr. Satoru Iwata, the recently deceased legendary game programmer and CEO for Nintendo.

Here is the Official launch video for the contest:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_Nz5KNYkZQ


Instructions:

1. Be a registered member of The Ocarina Network forum

2. Make a video or audio recording of yourself performing a Nintendo song (dedicated to Iwata) and upload it to Youtube.
If you can't record a video, you can still upload the audio with a picture as the background.

3. Post your entry as a reply to this thread:
http://theocarinanetwork.com/topic/8004 ... ost8432393


Rules:

-Entries must contain the ocarina as the main instrument.
You are allowed to use backtracks and other instruments along with the ocarina

-Entries must be your own performance (duh!).

-Group submissions are allowed, but keep in mind that there can only be one prize for the group if your entry wins.

DEADLINE: 1st September, 2015
TON will allow your entry as long as it is still 1st September in your timezone.


Prizes:





How winners will be determined:

1st Prize winner
As soon as the deadline is over, there will be a new topic made on the forum with all the entries to allow TON members to vote.
TON members (including entrants) will make one reply to the topic, openly stating who they vote for (and why, if they wish to).
We will leave the voting thread open for 1 week, and whoever has the most votes wins!

Entrants are allowed to vote as well. They can even vote for themselves (which is usually the case..)

2nd Prize winner
TON admins and helpers who are available will discuss and select a 2nd prize winner.
This winner will not necessarily be the most popular entry, nor the most technically skilled. We will be looking for other factors, such as passion, creativity and effort *cough* or the entry that we feel the most sympathy for *cough*

3rd Prize winner
We will use a random number generator and pick this one completely randomly!
Hence, everyone who enters has a chance of winning!


1st Prize winner gets to choose which prize he/she wants. 2nd Prize winner gets the next choice.
3rd Prize winner will get the ocarina that is left.


But hey, remember to have fun! It's not all about the prizes, but for us as a community to get together and share our love for Nintendo and music!


If you have any questions, feel free to ask here on this thread!


Thanks for your continued support of TON!

One thing I didn't see here or in the video (and description), some may want to ask for clarification: who will be judging the contest?
My video production is on hold for now, but there will be more to come someday!

Yes, there is a great amount of freedom you have, as long as it involves ocarina and Nintendo. Be as creative as you wish.

OOPS!!! I must've been very out of it to even ask such a silly question. >_< And on the very first post!

May the most-liked and best-decided video win!
