This is a friendly contest. There are no prizes, just the joy of taking part. It is not official or run by Media Molecule.
- All musical compositions must be original. No covers. No remixes of other works.
- All music must be made in Dreams. You can add musical accompaniment recordings into Dreams but they cannot be samples of any copyright material.
- All entries must have been created and launched between 1st April – 30 April 2020.
- All entries need to be tagged with #DSC2020 and the name of the country being represented.
- A collection will be made for all entries.
- All entries must be publicly shared. I cannot accept private creations with a collab request.
- You may collaborate. However individuals can only represent one country. So no collaborations on multiple tracks.
- All Dreamers are eligible to compete, including employees of Media Molecule.
- Each participant will choose a country to represent. One entry per country. This can be a real country or place from anywhere in the world or a fictional country. First to claim the country gets the right to represent. If a country is already chosen you will be asked to pick another. See list below.
- Music can be a song or an instrumental.
- Songs can be in any language including made up languages.
- Songs may not contain profanities.
- Music can be in any genre.
- You can enter with a track or a music video.
- Composition should not exceed 3 minutes and should be more than 30 seconds (this matches the requirements of the Eurovision Song Contest on which this is loosely based).
- Voting will take place by email by the participants to firstname.lastname@example.org between 1st May and 14th May
- Voting works like this:
All participants vote on their favourite 5 songs by country. They cannot include their own. They allocate 5,4,3,2, and 1 point to their favourites.
Every participant who votes gets 5 points added to their country’s score.
Songs in the Dreamiverse will receive likes by players. Those likes will be added up on final night after the last song is played, and the top 5 will be awarded 10, 8, 6, 4, and 2 points.
- The final will be live streamed on Twitch on my account LadylexUK. On Saturday 16th May at 8pm. All entries will be played and the results announced.
- There are no prizes. I am not participating in the contest personally and I will collate the votes to ensure fairness.
