Shoulda Woulda Coulda have launched a competition to win $500 simply by making a video featuring Polychord and uploading it to YouTube or Vimeo. The highest ranking video will be picked as the winner on October 15th.
Make a video that shows off polychord in some way. Use original material (e.g, don’t use someone else’s song/imagery unless you have permission). Upload your video to YouTube or Vimeo, including polychord in your title, tags, and description.
“We’re looking for a video that show the world why polychord is one of the best iPad music apps around. The only rules are that you show off polychord (and use it somehow in making your video) and that you don’t steal anyone else’s work (don’t use songs and/or imagery that don’t belong to you). Other than that, the video can be just about anything. It can be funny, beautiful, low tech, high tech, experimental, slick, cheap – whatever you envision.”
“Say you’re a songwriter – write a song with polychord and document the process. Perhaps you’re using polychord in a setup with a ton of vintage gear. Show the world how it works. Maybe you know polychord inside and out, and want to make a tutorial. There are tons of options.”
How will entries be judged?
Anyone will be able to vote on your entry. On October 15th, the video that is currently highest ranked will be declared the winner.
