A SONG OF STEEL AND FIRE CONTEST

 


 

Ladies and Gentlemen! Welcome to the SONG OF STEEL AND FIRE contest! In this contest, participants compete to see whom can write the best song dedicated to World of Tanks! Glory to them!

 

MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR!

 

THE PRIZE FOR THE FINAL VICTOR OF THIS CONTEST WILL BE A $100 DOLLAR ITUNES OR GOOGLE PLAY GIFT CARD FROM THE HONORABLE EdAWACSdenyY!

 

But Uncle AWACS, How what do I do?

Each contestant must submit a written song (or song parody) in which the lyrics have to pertain in some manner or another to an aspect or feature of World of Tanks in General. (eg. writing a song dedicated to German Tanks).

 

How to enter:

  • Create a new post in the "General Discussion" section of the forums

  • Tag your post with the topic tag of "#STEELANDFIRE"

 

 Contestants must create a thread of their own in which they type out and share the lyrics of their song for the community to see and for the panel of 3 judges to evaluate. The Judges range of evaluation will be based on the song itself in terms of content and rhyme scheme, originality of the song (songs which are not parodies but composed by the contestants themselves will receive bonus points), as well as creativity and cleverness of the lyrics which make sense.

 

The grading of each contest entry will be based on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being excellent and 1 being unsatisfactory. The exception to this rule will be the Enjoy-ability criteria which will be out of a scale of 1-20 The categories for grading will be:

 

Content: The songs content and how clever and creative the lyrics are and whether or not they make sense and are not just a random mishmash of phrases.How much does the song relate to it's intended topic? How does it skillfully incorporate aspects of that topic into the framework of the song?

 

Rhyme: How well does the song flow nicely with the tune or beat they are set to. (in the case of parodies) how well they can integrate their lyrics into the original verse of the song's rhythm without any awkward wordings. Also how well they can rhyme the end words of their songs lyrics.

 

Originality: How original the lyrics of the song is (just it reuse too much of the original song's lyrics if it is a parody?) Skillful incorporation of original lyrics from parodied songs however will not result in point deduction.

 

Enjoy-ability: This one takes into account of the forum community's appreciation of the contestants submissions provided via the like button on the Original post as well as their reasons why. Will be taken into consideration during evaluation.

 

Nota bene: A reward bonus of 10 points will be given to the contestant which writes an original song composed by themselves with their own original soundtrack with the proof of originality provided via a link to a video of them performing the song. Only after the originality has been validated will the bonus points be awarded. The quality of the performance will be taken into consideration.

 

Anyone can submit an entry. Final submissions must be submitted before December 17th which is the end date of the contest.

 

The Sole Winner will be announced on December 18th.

K, but do we need to sing and have a video? Or can we just type out the lyrics? 

what's the point of living if you're just going to be miserable?

You can just type out the lyrics. That is the basic requirement. However if you want the 10 point bonus, you will have to sing and make a video of you singing.

Sure you can sing a popular narrative song and poetry form, a ballad. The songs are often about oppression, history, daily life for peasants, and other socially relevant topics. So long as it has something to do with World of Tanks.
