The Univision Song Contest II
« on: October 02, 2013, 01:28:59 PM »
Welcome back to the Univision Song Contest for the second edition! The previous edition is found here.

We're back in Aahrus after the glorious win by Ani Lorak's Shady Lady who scored 66 points!





Welcome back to Aahrus! Our beautiful little island is located off the scenic coast of Ethanthova. One of the densest cities on Universalis, it is our pleasure to bring you the second edition of the contest!



As the host venue for the first contest, our wonderful Crystal Hall is perfectly suited for the contest. All the acts will find it perfectly comfortable on the stage in a few days.



We hope you have a wonderful time in the city state!



Next year, the contest will be hosted in the winning country, so good luck to all!

Full rules for the second edition can be found here.

Here is how you submit an entry:
SONGS:
- A song must not have been sent in previous editions of the contest.
- Songs must be a maximum of roughly 5 minutes. I'll accept a few seconds over, but not minutes over.
- Joke entries are allowed, but try to keep it somewhat serious. I don't want a 5 minute loop of a 30 second meme. Also try to avoid very vulgar songs.
- The song must be a Youtube video.
- If there is copyright issues, another version of the song must be found. If the song has already been submitted, anyone who gets copyright issues will not be required to listen to it.

SENDING SONGS:
- Up to 3 songs can be entered per user.
- There is a 34 song maximum that are allowed to enter, it is first come first serve. It is recommended that you only submit 2 songs if you are submitting near the submissions deadline.
- Songs must be sent in a private message to me, Yqt1001.

PARTICIPATING COUNTRIES:
- You can only enter one country into the contest, however you can send multiple songs.
- Countries must be on the Official USF map (located here) to be eligible to participate.
- Every country that enters must send one to three songs, they must also vote.
- The country does not need to be yours, however you need permission from the leader to send it to Univision.

JOINING UNIVISION:
- Your participation must be confirmed, either along with your songs or beforehand.
- If you have yet to submit a flag, you must submit one.
- The flag sizes I need are: 165x110 and 40x25. I can do the resizing if necessary.

ALL ENTRIES MUST BE SUBMITTED BY 12:00 GMT ON SATURDAY OCTOBER 5TH!
This is 8am EDT.

The live broadcast of Univision (located here) will be a few hours afterwards and a time will be confirmed the Friday beforehand.

No you don't have to be there, but you will still have to listen to the songs and vote on them.

- The song with the most points wins!
- Tiebreaking is: song with the most number of voters wins, the same number of voters makes it based on running order.

SENDING VOTES:
- Votes must be sent in private message to me, Yqt1001.
- I will accept votes as a 1-10 ranking of your favourite songs, with 1 being your favourite and 10 being your tenth favourite.
- All I need is the rank of the song and the song number in the running order. "1. Song #1" is acceptable.

JURY MEMBERS:
- No confirmation is needed beforehand, simply listen to the songs and submit your votes to me (same voting rules apply).
- Jury votes will be split proportionally into 7 jury voting groups. These votes will be merged together.
- Votes will be selected based on how similar they are in order to keep the same top 3 votes.
