The GetYourGrooveOn Jingle Jam-Off
Let's cut to the meat of it. You either want a 1GB iPod shuffle (valued at $90) and $10 iTunes gift card.... or you want $100 worth of iTunes gift cards. We want a jingle. It's simple, really.
Compose your best jingle about GetYourGrooveOn and add it to the site. The song has to be made public so that people can hear it and offer their comments. At the end of the contest (August 5th, 2007), the GetYourGrooveOn staff will select a winner.
We would leave it up to some elaborate voting system, but frankly we're too lazy to program one. We will be reading comments on the songs and take them into consideration, though.
Cool. What exactly can I win?
You have a choice of two prizes. The first is a (1) 1GB Apple iPod Shuffle, valued at $90, in the color of your choice. We'll also send you a $10 Apple iTunes Store gift card to get you started with the tunes.
Your second option, in case you already have an iPod, would be one (1) Apple iTunes Store gift card with a face value of $100. That's 100 songs!!
So how do I enter?
Glad you asked, omnicient heading question! It's simple. Write an original tune (due to legal reasons we can't allow covers), record an mp3 of it, add it to your GetYourGrooveOn account along with the lyrics, make it public, and then send an email to inREMOVEMEfo@bandnaREMOVEMEtion.com with a link to the song.
Once the contest is over, we'll be making rounds to the pages that contain contest entries and we'll select our winner. We'll be contacting you through the email address on your GetYourGrooveOn account, so please make sure it's accurate. And no, we will not spam you.
Why are you doing this??
Ok, so it's not really about a jingle. We want to kickstart GetYourGrooveOn and get musicians, such as yourself, to sign up and try out GetYourGrooveOn. That's about it. The jingle part is pretty cool though. (I came up with that myself!)
