Question: Can we change our nomination? I’d like to nominate one my newer releases instead of the one I chose previously. Thanks in advance for answering.

Hi MBS! The easiest thing to do is to submit another item. But note that an older item with proven sales/ratings might get you a better chance of being selected. We’re ultimately looking for users’ “best items” that they’re willing to give away.

Can I vote for all of them? If I vote only for one, I feel I’m doing something wrong against of others.

I admire your philanthropic heart, halfdata! One vote per member only unfortunately as I’m sure you can appreciate. If you’re having trouble sleeping at night however, you could always vote and then make a donation to the other charities you didn’t vote for. ;)

Ultimately, whichever charity gets selected, it’s the kids that will come out the winner.

Hello everyone! Some of you may already know about our Christmas Song contest we’re running on AudioJungle right now. But a big part of that event will involve our entire community.
We’re ultimately going to be selling, for a very limited time, the Top 10 Christmas Songs from our AudioJungle contest, as an “album” (sold as a “Music Pack” on AudioJungle) that you can listen to (but also includes a standard RF license). The difference however is that all proceeds from sales of that “album” will go to a children’s charity.

Vote for a Children’s Charity

Instead of selecting the charity for you, we thought it would be great for our community to vote for which children’s charity you would like to ultimately support. If you were wondering, we chose children’s charities because it ties-in with our overall theme of Christmas – a time of year that is often a great time for children, or when we can always do more for children around the world.
We did a little research to find three children’s charities that not only have excellent values, visions, and missions, but are charities that all have excellent reviews, ratings, and reputations.
VOTE NOW!

Charities to Choose From

The three charities to choose from are:

Make-A-Wish International
https://www.worldwish.org/en
  • About: The mission of Make-A-Wish International is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. We are dedicated to making every eligible child’s wish come true.
Save the Children
http://www.savethechildren.org/
  • About: Save the Children invests in childhood – every day, in times of crisis and for our future. In the United States and around the world, we give children a healthy start, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. By transforming children’s lives now, we change the course of their future and ours.
Feed the Children
http://www.feedthechildren.org
  • About: Feed the Children exists to end childhood hunger. Around the world, we provide nourishing meals every day to more than 350,000 children. We believe that everyone can work together to create a world where no child goes to bed hungry.

watermarks to protect against downloading should be placed?
No, watermarks are not necessary for this contest. In fact, now that I see your entry above with a watermark, could you post your entry without a watermark, please? Thanks so much!
Tell me how to edit my post? Or do I need to create a new one?

Hello! Send me a link to the new image via my profile page and I’ll update your original post. Thanks! :)

Thanks!

Yes Scotty, that’s the explanation I need. :D

Sorry, I thought I read and understood all though I didn’t. :)

You’re welcome! And no problem at all, these are all good questions that everyone has been asking. You don’t know how excited I am to start seeing/hearing all the entries come in! :D

Can I make multiple versions of the song? With vocals and without vocals, short and full version? Or only need one version of the song?
You can create multiple edits/variations for your item as per normal guidelines. But for the purposes of the contest, and should you win, we will only be considering (and using) the vocal version. Hope this helps.

Sorry, it’s not 100% clear for me.

Do you mean we can upload a Christmas ‘Song’ together mith instrumental variations even if it’ll be the song for the contest, right!?

Hi Udo!

Here’s what our announcement says:

http://marketblog.envato.com/competitions/win-share-750-christmas-song-contest/

Can I include an instrumental version with the submission? Yes, but this is optional.”

So to be eligible for the contest you obviously need to include a song with full vocals. If you want to include anything else with it, then that is optional and at your discretion.

Hope this helps clarify. Best of luck! :)

I’m confused, so a song that was just approved for sale on AJ this November, can not be submitted to this contest?

Is a song written and recorded just 2 weeks ago really “pre-existing”? I consider that to be “brand new, just released.”

I see no logic in that thought process… Why would those tracks be excluded?

Hi Zineb,

Sorry, anything pre-existing the contest announcement is not eligible as per our terms and conditions – “Your item must be brand new, your own work, and must not have been previously submitted to AudioJungle.” Contests are harder than you think to plan and execute and having very clear and fair rules makes it as fair and enjoyable as possible for everyone. Thanks for understanding.

8-) Hi Scott, what’s the minimum song length allowed?

Hi!

Working on something right now :-)

Is there a minimum time for the track e.g. 2mins or above.

Cheers

Joe

Hi guys,

No, there’s no minimum, but be mindful that to be considered a true “vocal song”, it’s probably going to be around the 2 minute mark (or longer). Here’s an interesting article on song length by the way. :)

One question: Is it possible to delete an uploaded music, change, sing vocals and re upload? It will be like a new song … Best regards.

No, sorry, not permitted. Brand new entries/songs only please.
