We're putting future contests on hold for now, due to other pressing matters. If any of you are interested in covering any of our songs, please let us know and we'll help you out as best as we can. Stay posted for further developments!
Just had about a foot of snow dumped on my town, so we're busy digging ourselves out. Most of the contest prize money has been distributed, and we're hoping the remainder will be sent soon. Stay tuned to this channel for further developments!
We've just finished sending emails to the seven prize winners one day early, with the poorly-worded subject line, "Your Prize", which is sure to find its way into some spam folders. After all seven have replied to confirm, I'll post the links to everyone's recordings. Have a great weekend!
We're on track to let everyone know what prize they've won on Saturday, January 11th. We'll email all of the prizewinners then. (We don't want you all to be glued to your phones, which is sometimes inconvenient!)
We've decided to put any future contest on hold, for now, for several reasons that we need not get into.
We have a nice collection of URLs now, and the plan is to begin reviewing them next Monday, 1/6/20 (Ephiphany Day). We should have our winners selected by Friday, 1/10/20, and notifications to them will begin shortly thereafter. Right now, I have some other business to attend to, such as my "annual" physical exam which I've been postponing for almost five years...
We are anticipating more URLs to be submitted in the next couple of days, so we'll process all URLs that have been submitted since yesterday (12/30) in a batch, meaning that we'll send confirmation emails for those probably within a few days. Our intention is to not leave any URL behind! If you've submitted a URL before 12/30, you should have already received a confirmation email. If you didn't, kindly re-submit your URL (i.e., try again). If you're confused, please contact us via the contact link and we'll try to help. We'll not begin judging the recordings until probably late next week, to make sure that we have received everyone's URL. Happy New Year!
I hope you've all had a very merry Christmas. Today's stats are much the same as the previous': 33 registrations and 1 URL submittal. We are capable of processing 32 URL submittals around Dec. 31st in short order, so there's no need to hurry (until Dec. 31st, that is!). We will send an email acknowledgment for each URL submittal, so that you'll know that we'd gotten it. Happy New Year!
So far, we have 32 contestants, and 1 URL submittal (we're happy that our website is working as planned!). The deadline for URL submittals remains Dec. 31st. There's no need to submit URLs before Dec. 31st. We won't be viewing any recordings until Jan. 1st. If this happens to be our last blog before then, we wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Regardless of what is written in other parts of this website (we will update those parts eventually), all contestants who post a recording for this contest now have our permission to include "His Words" in any future album or CD that they release, with no requirement to pay us royalties of any kind, as long as we are given credit for the song's composition. This permission applies to all contestants, whether or not they win one of the prizes. This is our way of thanking all of you for entering the contest. If you feel that you need to get this in writing from us, please let us know and we'll provide it. Also, please let us know how to purchase a copy of your CD!
