[Updated 5/7/19 to improve our Blog's name] This blog is possibly a better way to communicate with our contestants and potential contestants than by our sending out annoying bulk emails.
The contest is proceeding smoothly and as planned, with some new ads to appear in the next few months. Early indications are that there will be a good number of contestants by year's end. We have no target number to achieve, so we've already achieved our goal, or lack thereof.
We've had a couple of registrants who earlier had misunderstood that this contest involved their recording their own original songs (it doesn't), so our website has been updated to better clarify that the purpose of this contest is to record "His Words", with prizes awarded to the top three.
For anyone wondering what our judging criteria will be, the answer is we haven't any! It would be way too complicated (for us, anyway) to try to compare different musical styles by using measurable, objective standards. Such is the nature of music, and we've never been big fans of the typical musical competition setup with its panel of judges. We'll try to be as fair as possible (of course!) in our evaluations. There will be no written comments or feedback given to the contestants of the judging results of their recordings after the contest is over, except maybe to the prize winners.
Thank you for registering (or for thinking about registering)!
