Hi all,

A lot of us might remember our (almost) most popular competition so far: 'The Kitchen Cover Competition (2016)'
We're going to start the 2nd edition when voting for the Beatles Comp (@ May 14th 2017) ends. Btw, if you haven't voted yet: go go go listen and vote here: https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/competitions/18/the-beatles-competition-voting-thread/3064/ !

The Kitchen Cover Competition assignment was/is: 'Cover a song of one of your fellow kitcheners in your own preferred style'. Solo and collaboration entries are allowed.
Back then we figured this kind of competition:
-Encourages to listen to each other's work (searching for a song to cover), which will contribute to our involvement with each other (and feel free to comment to any thread of any kitchener, bumping it up and give it some extra attention, while you are searching for a song you'd like to cover!)
-Encourages to share the progress of the cover and get live feedback from the community at any stage of the development of your cover and help each other improve (post your creation at any stage!)
-Helps to get to know each other better
-Contributes to the feeling we are all stars, which we are!!  8) 8)
-Encourages promoting songs of fellow kitcheners on Social Media (the original creators will be credited properly, thus it's very likely some traffic will be drawn to their original song as well)
-Results in many surprises especially for the one's who are BEING covered. Just imagine how nice would it would be to hear a completely different version of one of your songs, covered and performed by a fellow kitchener?
-Results in fanTAStic submissions, I'm still so proud of our last year's entry list..

We'll start the competition May 15th and it will run until the 15th of July 2017.

The rules:
-Cover a song from a fellow kitchener (doesn't have to be someone who also entered this competition), in any style you prefer.
-You are allowed to enter solo, or team up with another kitchenaut/other kitchenauts
-The song needs to have the same lyrics as the original (small changes allowed).
-Competitors must ask permission to the writer of the original song, this is really important. Only cover a song when you have that permission. So go ahead and start lobby-ing!!
-Competitors are allowed to put their cover on SoundCloud, but then they MUST mention the original writer in the SoundCloud decription of the cover track using the '@' tag.
-The competition will run from the 15th of May to the July 15th 2017. Final results should be submitted before July 15th.
-Please add the text Cover Comp to the subject title of your submission, so I can easily query the results and put together a nice list in the end. It's your responsibility your song is listed in the #2 post in this thread. Should I have missed your entry, (when it's not listed in the contributions list (#2 post)) drop me a PM BEFORE voting starts please. There's no way to correct when voting has already been started...  ;)
-All provided links to entries should be working when voting starts as well. If we don't have a working link when voting starts, the song will be disqualified.
-Every contestant MUST vote, and self-voting is not allowed. I'm programming the forum software to improve detecting violations. Our @DishWasher will help you when he's notified of violations. He's not a nice guy with all his negative karma...  ;)

Here's the thread from last year: https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/competitions/18/the-kitchen-cover-competition-2016-is-closed/1930/
Here's the amazing results (and ranking): https://www.songwriter-forum-kitchen.com/forum/competitions/18/the-kitchen-cover-competition-2016-results/2198/

So now who's in? Please let us know, we'll reserve the next post to collect the contestants. Also: when you'd like to be covered: let us know as well (and be specific which songs are allowed to be covered)!! I'll collect your data in the third post of this thread.

The prize will be the same as last year. The kitchen will give you a free master of one of your tracks, done by a semi-pro studio, if you manage to win!! As a bonus we'll add a Kitchen oven glove for the runner up!
Of course, as always, the winning top-5 of songs will be shared on the kitchen SoundCloud page ( https://soundcloud.com/songwriter-in-the-kitchen )
I hope we'll make this the biggest competition ever! Spread the word, offer your songs and/or start covering, and have fun!!

Cheers!

Yup.  There are a few unfinished acoustic takes on there too that might be primed for this.  I also wrote all of the songs on this SC too.  www.soundcloud.com/eaglevsfalcon

Either can be fair game ::thumb::
