First of all thanks very much to those who entered. We want to make this a yearly thing, so thanks for getting the ball rolling; you have the honour of being the very first entrants. I'm about to post a thread asking for ideas for next year's contest - we want to make it bigger and better, more inclusive, with fantastic prizes, perhaps even getting guitar magazines and companies involved to promote and donate. We're ambitious and we want you to be too. smile.gif So thanks for entering and join us again next year. smile.gif

Now then. The winner, which you have all been waiting for! It was a great effort, well recorded, ladies and gentlemen the winner is testify with 'Single Handed Sailor'! smile.gif Well done testify. You win lots of cool prizes - I've PMed you. Hon menshes also to Graeme and tml, whose efforts the judges also liked. We want more entries next year, so don't sit on your hands. Testify will testify (boom boom) to the great prizes on offer, and next year we'll have different categories or 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes - so no need to be put off from entering if you don't think you'll win. We want this to be part of the GTU community, an inclusive and fun contest, where everyone can take a role organising and voting if they wish. You've gotta be in it to win it. smile.gif

Well done testify. You may go forth and put 'Winner of GTU Song Contest 2007' in your signature. (Make yourself a banner if you know how.) Prestige and fighting off girls with a big stick shall follow.

Lol, Ive never used that one before, I was actually looking for a clappy one but there aint one there!

Seriously though, well done testify.

Here's hoping that next years contest gets more entries though, all the great artists on here deserve to be heard.

Once again, well done testy.

How about a singer songwriter contest for 07? like judge on the ability to come up with your own original stuff. and put it together into a song?

I have got all the prizes together, and my landlady who runs an engraving trophy shop is going to make a small trophy instead of a plaque. Should look pretty cool. Hats of to all that participated and testify your prizes will all be sent out next week, congratulations

So wasn't this the contest Rob started about songs to help our cause or some such? Or is this something else completely random.

And you should post the winner links in this thread because I'm far too lazy to look for them elsewhere.

You came last, Derm. Just kidding.

Jenn, this is contest that 4000HolesInBlackburnLancashire started ages ago, and then stopped going online for ages. I got people asking me if the contest was still going, so as a moderator, I ressurrected it. I didn't judge, I just... oversaw things. Makes no difference to me who wins, though it'd be lovely to see more participation next year. Thanks to all the entrants, to 4000Holes for the idea, and to Joe, Quinnfrie and Billiards for judging. We're open to ideas for next year's, how to make it better.

And SOG, yes we want to make it yearly but we'll be posting about it in plenty of time so people can be working on recordings.

I have not had much time other then to eat and sleep. I got the trophy on Thursday, and finally found time to take a picture. Here it is with all the other prizes,







As soon as I possibly can I will get everything in the mail.

Maaaan. I really wish I would have gotten access to an acoustic before the deadline.


We should have more contests like this.
Hey hey I'm in Rock Band, so go download my stuff out of the Rock Band Network store or whatever. Search for Single White Infidel

You'd be better suggesting that in the....'songwriting' forum
