UPDATED: NEWh3re 2022 Song Contest

The NEWh3re concom is delighted to announce our 2022 Song Contest!

This year, once again the winner will be determined by popular vote. We will be collecting submissions to the song contest before the con, and voting will take place Friday (June 10) and Saturday (June 11) during the con. UPDATED: Submissions have been extended through to 11:59 PM Eastern time Saturday (June 11), with voting to open Sunday morning. The winner will be announced at the Closing Ceremonies.

The theme for this year’s contest is: “Third Time’s the Charm”!

Rules for Contestants:

    1. The deadline for submitting entries to the song contest is now Saturday June 11, 2022, 11:59 PM Eastern time. Entries may be submitted beginning now.
    2. Submissions should be sent to nefilk.tech@gmail.com. Each submission must include a lyrics sheet and may be accompanied by a link to a video or audio recording (or by an attached recording if the contestant has no way to host it elsewhere). If a recording is included, it does not need to be performed by the same person who wrote the song.
    3. To be submitted for this contest, a song must have been written within the past year (i.e., completed since the end of NEWhere 2021), and must be either written or co-written by an NEWh3re 2022 attendee. (Partial attendance counts.)
    4. Only one entry per person is permitted.
    5. The winning entry will be determined by popular vote. See below for details.

  1. “Schedule grid is up! [UPDATED June 17, 7:20 PM Eastern]”

    I don’t think so, unless it’s last year’s— in which case it’s pretty useless except archivally, not something to trumpet right now. You do know, I assume, that today— well, the day I saw that and am writing this— is June 8.

  2. Are the entries listed on the web site? It says they will be, but I can’t find them. Do you have to join the discord to vote? Thanks.

    1. Sorry for the confusion! The submission period was extended and voting has not opened yet, and this post has not yet been corrected. Voting will most likely open Sunday morning.
