Aarin Idol 2010~ *ENTRIES NOW CLOSED*
Back by popular Demand is the Aarin Idol Contest!
unlike previous years, this year we will be holding it in two different categories~
AUDIO and VIDEO!
Both will be held independently of one another and will be judged by our panel of judges (which includes me and aarinfantasy) to be put up to you guys to vote for.
All contestants will get points for entering the amount is 100000 points per entry
The competition will start officially from now, and all entrants from this date will be accepted.
the way the contest run is that each entrant will be listened / watched by our panel of judges and select a number of entrants (dependent on how many entries we get)
theses entries will then be put up for voting, and this is anonymous, so the voters will not be able to determine who is singing what.
The winners will receive the points listen below and the winner of the Audio category will be encouraged to record a full song or songs to be made into a digital single available for download in our forums.
1st prize - 25m
2nd prize - 15m
3rd prize - 5m
this will be awarded to the winners of each category.
How to Enter

- Though discussion can take place we do not encourage members to try to sway others to vote for a specific contestant. Votes should come genuinely from the members after they have heard for themselves.
- You can only enter each category once, so please do not send multiple entries to me as I will only accept the FIRST one you send in for each category.

Good luck and all the best!

Since I don't have a webcam is it okay If I put anime pics instead when I'm entering a video entry?
Also is there any possible way to make your song karaoke so we don't have to listen to the singer in the BG?

As for the first question ref. the sideshow video, chewy will advise later.
As far as removing vocals from songs/mp3... it should be possible. I'm not proficient but the recording application I use for various projects is an awesome Open Source program for Mac, Windows and Linux called Audacity.
With Audacity, it should be possible to do what you need but I don't know how. This youtube video seems to be a demo on how to do it. This guy does a lot of video tutorials, so it might be of help:

if you do not own a webcam you should enter the audio category only, the video category is primarily for those who want to showcase themselves as well as their singing abilities(for example their dance moves )
so sorry I will not be accepting sideshows for the video entries.
Sorry for the confusion
Also as Miko has suggested there are a few programs available for you to remove the singing on tracks, some tracks may even have an instrumental versions so have a search around.
Of course you dont have to have backing music acapella is fine

How about this, I wouldn't make a slideshow but how about me making an AMV with me singing in the background, would that count as a video category?
im afraid I must decline that request, as this is not an AMV competition. There is still nothing barring you from entering the audio catergory.
