July 16th is a Thursday but the key details say Tuesday? which date is the submission due? ALSO if I submit on the 16th will it still be able to make the competition (despite it probably being approved at a later date?

Good spot! The dates are correct, but days were wrong. I’ve updated it to correctly say “Thursday”.

Yes, you can still upload your entry on the 16th and be eligible.
Question is: If you submit on 16 and get soft rejected are you automatically ” disqualified”?!? That would be quite unfair…

Yes, if your item is soft rejected after the 16th due to quality issues that require you to update and reupload the song, then it would be ineligible for the event as it was uploaded after the deadline.

Keep in mind it does not matter when the item is approved/published as long as the final submission was uploaded during the contest time period. So even if the queue is taking longer than usual for your item to be processed and approved, you will still be eligible.

I would simply recommend not waiting until the very last minute to upload :)

Hey everyone, really feeling the party vibes here! Just under 10 days left to finish up and submit your birthday hits :)

Having writers block? Tip: keep it simple. A great melody goes a long way. Find a “hook” and stick to it. Remember “Happy Birthday” only has six words after all!

Great stuff so far everyone! We’re just past halfway to the deadline, with a little more than 3 weeks remaining. Plenty of time to sharpen those pencils (real or virtual) and get creative :)

In the meantime, feel free to post some pics of your initial project sketches or your digital drawing setup, we’d love to see what techniques and gadgets you’re using these days! Traditional pen and paper? Tablet and stylus? Only your finger on a mobile device? Scanning or Shape? It’s pretty exciting how many ways you can capture your ideas and artwork, isn’t it :)

can I submit 2 variations of the same song (long, short version, in the same item of course) both with and without lyrics?

So 4 versions total? You can have up to 5 in a single music item, so sure!

Well Do we need more lyrics than “happy birthday” ?

Nope, not really! Shorter “jingles” or catchy songs with simpler lyrics are all perfectly okay here :)

There are absolutely no genre or length restrictions here, so you can create just about anything you want! From a shorter kid-friendly jingle to a full on pop billboard style hit, whether upbeat and energetic or slow and sentimental, or anything else in between, just so long as it’s about birthdays it’s all up to you

You may of course want to come up with your own unique twist on simply “happy birthday” to give it a bit more personality, but that’s up to you and what works best for your song(s).

Perhaps just a few more words might help (the traditional Happy Birthday has a whopping 6 words after all) ;)
