Hey Guys!

Just letting you all know that we’ve extended the deadline for submissions until Friday 2nd of July. Keep in mind when deciding whether or not to enter, that if you win, you will receive credit each time we publish an episode. So long as we’re still using your tune, you’ll get a mention at the end of each show & in the show notes. This is great marketing for your file and for your portfolio as each episode is downloaded by thousands of people.

If you have any questions, just ask! Otherwise we’ll update you all on Friday. :-)

Cheers, Scott, Drew & Jords.

Community Podcast Theme Tune Contest

As mentioned in the latest edition of the Envato Community Podcast, Support crew Jordan and Drew are offering you the chance to compose and produce new music for the Community Podcast! Not only will the winning music be used in future podcasts giving you lots of exposure and extra bragging rights, but here’s what else you will win:

Prizes

  • Won a Competition Badge
  • Featured in a Podcast Badge
  • 6 month Tuts+ Subscription
  • $29 Rockable Press e-voucher
  • $25 Marketplace credit

Dates to Remember

  • Monday June 14th – Contest Begins
  • Friday June 25th – Contest Ends
  • June 28th – July 2nd Community Votes for their Favorite Music from all Entries
  • July 3rd – Top 3 Finalists Announced
  • Next Podcast – Jordan and Drew will choose their favorite from the Top 3 Finalists and announce the winner on the podcast!

Submission Instructions

  • If you haven’t listened to the Envato Community Podcast yet, listen now! The podcast contains music to give you an idea of how we will be using your music throughout the podcast.
  • You need to create 3 pieces of music:
  • Intro: Your intro should be approximately 20 – 30 seconds
  • Break: Your “break” will be used during the podcast to provide a break to the conversation. It should be shorter than your intro, approximately 10-15 seconds in length, and it should be based on the same tune/melody as your intro.
  • Outro: Your outro should be approximately 20 – 30 seconds and it should be based on the same tune/melody as your intro and “break”.
  • After you have created all 3 pieces of music, upload them to the Music category (you can choose any genre you wish). Your main .zip should contain all 3 pieces of music in .mp3 and/or .wav format and your watermarked preview should contain all 3 pieces of music.
  • Only files accepted into our library (normal upload instructions apply) will be eligible for the contest.
  • Important: Only ONE entry per author is allowed. We’re looking for quality, not quantity! :)
  • Think about the genre, mood and tempo of music that might work best for our podcast. Ask yourself whether the end of the intro and “break” should be trailed instead of ending abruptly to allow the podcaster’s voice to appear over the top of the music. These are not requirements, but just suggestions for you to think about before you create your music.
  • After your submission has been approved by the reviewers, you must post a link to your track in this thread.
  • Don’t forget to post your entries no later than Friday June 25th.
  • Voting

    Jordan and Drew will be providing more information on how to vote after the submission deadline has ended. Stay tuned!

    GOOD LUCK !

    We’ll get it! Post a link here once it’s approved :-)

    @DanielKeller and anyone else. If you submit your item by the end of Friday (US time), even if it’s still in the queue we’ll make sure it’s included. Just send me a message if you’re concerned about the amount time it’s taking and make sure to post a link to the approved item here in this thread! :-)

    Everything sounds awesome so far guys!
