I'm new to VI control so I can't post links :) That's actually a smart decision from your moderators.

I don’t use Facebook. Can I still enter the competition?
The contest is technically for members, but we don’t have time to police and make sure the entries are submitted by members. So if you just want to email your entry, I suppose that’s fine. BUT- I do highly recommend making a Facebook account specifically for this contest so that you can stay up to date on all the announcements...like the celebrity judge we’ll be announcing tomorrow...

Cool! What's the format? Anything midi or strictly adhering to the orchestra?
all midi - no live instruments. If you make your own Kontakt or other sampler instruments, then it needs to be a product that's available to the public for free or purchase, no private libraries. It's definitely orchestral focused, but anything goes. BUT - keep in mind, one of the judging categories is "orchestral realism." So, an EDM only track wouldn't score well in that category...but if you added a great midi violin on top of that EDM, you could end up scoring very high... hope that helps and makes sense.

Question:
What does Midi Only mean(Im from Germany)?
Only the midi piano sheet or the midi notes of each instruments
It means don’t record live instruments. Only virtual instruments. Export your finished track as you normal would as a WAV or MP3, upload to SoundCloud and send the link. Does that answer your question? We’re definitely not looking for midi data.
