I didn't see a thread on this yet....

So what does the contest want? Are we suposed to design cover art for a song or make a music video or what? If anyone want s to help me understand this I will love you until I find someone else to love.;)

And if you want this to stay....If you're doing the contest put up links to your stuff so we can all see it.

According to the contest info:

GMC viewers are asked to record an amateur video or cover of any Skillet song (old or the new single) and submit it to GMC before December 20th, 2006. GMC staff will judge the submissions to pick a winner for each level of prize package. Please send your submission via YouTube.com, YouSendIt.com, MegaUpload.com, or your own FTP site. You must provide the URL of the hosted file during the sign-up process.

So I guess you're supposed to make a video.

Not quite. I'm not sure of the rules, but all these contests I've seen require you to make all the music yourself. No copyrighted material allowed. So you will hear TerraSin doing a version of a Skillet song. NOT karaoke. NEVAR! :P

DarkestRose

It is like how people do videos of their bands performing a song that another artist has done. You can find those on YouTube.

So I believe the contest would mean you would be singing a Skillet song of your choice and probably doing the music too (not too sure about that part) and the video would be of that.

I'm thinking the network that is hosting the contest doesn't understand their own rules.

I've been working for several weeks now on putting together a song which I was going to submit tomorrow after doing some final touch ups and a mix down. However, they already removed their submission form for the contest even though it was suppose to end up Wednesday at 11:59pm. I am seriously irked at this because I put a great amount of time into this project and had to spend a good amount of time learning 3 new programs and rush through a recording process. I've sent an email, hopefully it will be responded to in the morning and put the form back up.

Heh, I did a version of Yours To Hold as well. I was impressed with everything except the vocals which were quite disappointing. I had to do over 150 takes on them because I kept running into coughing fits from being sick. In the end, I was having trouble holding my notes and the the overall sound was ugly. Other than that, I was impressed with the overall production in such short of time. Plus, the guy who did guitars only heard the song for the first time a day before. I was quite impressed when he started pumping it out.

So according to the Rules & Regulations of this contest, the winner should be picked by:
"4. Winner Selection: One (1) grand prize winner (the “Grand Prize Winner”) will be chosen by GMC on or around December 21, 2006, from among all of the Eligible Entries received. The odds of winning will be determined by the total number of Eligible Entries received by GMC."

And I guess the only way you'll find out who won is by doing the following:
"9. For the names of the Grand Prize Winners, send a self addressed stamped envelope to:

Gospel Music Channel
1895 Phoenix Boulevard, Suite 355
Atlanta, GA 30349
Attn: Marketing: Skillet Sweepstakes

All requests must be received by, December 31, 2007.
Please note on the front left hand corner of your outer envelope “Winners”."

Hey Terrasin, do you think it's possible that they never claimed a winner? It's funny, I always hear of these contests like "win an autographed guitar!" and NEVER hear the winner.

lol, you know, that would be hilarious/horrible (and just my luck). I bet you and I won 1st/2nd place, and we'll never know because we didn't send in a stinkin' self addressed (and already stamped) envelope! Oh well. You know, if I EVER get to actually talk to Skillet after a concert (which has been unlikely the past 4 times), but if I do, I'm gonna ask them about if they knew there was an actual winner or not.

But really, I remember reading in the rules that they would notify the winner by e-mail/phone from John, and if they couldn't reac them in 48 hours, they'd go to, I gues the 2nd place winner. But who knows? Seriously ::]

And just to clear it up, Skillet did personally sign the front of the lyric booklet (it's the real booklet, not an insert), unlike the "limited edition" insert that came with the pre-order of comatose.
