Art-Inspired Music Contest 2017 (A.I.M.)

Contest Forum Thread: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1421358

What is it?:  It's a contest for musicians to help improve their skills with solid advice from experienced musicians as well as to have fun with this creative endeavor, searching for artwork in the Art Portal, whatever inspires you for an awesome song!  You then link to the artwork and your song, but take your time!  This contest goes on for almost 2 months, so you have plenty of time! 

Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch 2017

Countdown Clock: https://w2.countingdownto.com/1754190

Same goes for the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch Auditions thread!  Auditions for NGADM starts May 28th, so you can submit a new or old song you made starting then on the thread until June 25th whenever it gets posted, which will be here.  Last year there was no NGADM, but this year, we have restarted this epic tournament, be prepared!

What is it?: NG's most challenging audio competition to test the might of the musicians!  A tournament that tests the musicians that make it past the audition round to battle against each other to the finish!  This is indeed NG's hardest competition in the music department, alongside A.I.M. of course.

Talking Real: Resident Evil 7

Told you guys I would be talking about Resident Evil 7 in my next podcast episode, well, here it is!  I give my thoughts on my impression of the game and theories on what may be next for the RE series. Enjoy: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/727964

Looking For Game Programmer for NG: Zero Hour

Title speaks all.  I'm looking for a programmer to finish this awesome game that we started.  We have a lot of sprites already, but I want to establish a programmer first before I start looking for artists again (maybe calling some old ones back) who will help finish this game.  Check out the demo, and if you think you have the skills, show me your games, post a comment! (Note: Game works best on Google Chrome, doesn't play on some browsers)

Was about to listen to that podcast, but spoiler alerts hmm... oh, impressive plot twists?! I think I'll skip for now. :) Really looking forward to playing the game though, maybe I'll remember this when I'm done. The sixth was a bit of a disappointment, but I love the series otherwise, played pretty much every part - spin-off or not - since I caught up with the first three way back whenever they came out. Hyped to hear it's on the right track again, though Revelations weren't bad either!

RealFaction responds:

Definitely check the game out first, even if it' just a walkthrough, it's worth the surprises. I suggest looking for a cutscenes video. Yeah revelations is cool!

Can I upload music or my drawings?

(Updated ) RealFaction responds:

Huh? What do you mean? It's newgrounds...you can upload stuff here whenever you want xD as for the contests....what are you asking me? For the art-inspired music contest, you can't start working on music for it until the start date as listed, and you have until the deadline date to finish your music and you can upload inbetween those dates.

For NGADM, during the auditions as dates are listed, you can upload music and post the link in the forum topic when the link is posted here sometime in May, whether it's an old song you made or uploaded at any time really, doesn't matter old or new for the audition process, but if you get in, you must start making a song for NGADM Round 1 when it starts, then you have 2 weeks to make the song and submit it before the deadline.

But if this didn't answer your question, I'm not sure what you mean then...sorry xD hope this helps. Also, you can upload artwork and maybe someone will be inspired by it for a song, but you can't use your own artwork for inspiration, simply to encourage people to search for artwork on newgrounds.

I'm still fairly new to NG, do I have to complete the music by March 19th or is that when it starts? I have absolutely no chance at winning but it sounds like a fun thing to do

RealFaction responds:

That's when it starts. Refer to SmokeAvery's comment bellow. I thought i replied to this comment but I guess not. Never say you never have a chance, you never know. :) But it's not to win, it's to have fun, and to test your skills to the limit, and improve. To take what inspires you and compose something to your fullest. That's what I believe being an artist is all about to the core.

But yeah, don't start on anything until March 19th. I'll update this post with a link to the contest on that day. :)

Irish-Soul, That's when it starts. That means do not begin making anything for the contest until the start date.. And don't say you have no chance, do your best and be confident with it and of course have fun.

RealFaction responds:

Thanks! Totally thought i replied to that comment but i guess not.

Seems really cool, I'll make sure to participate :)

RealFaction responds:

Cool! Thanks!

I gotta start working again. It's been a while. Looking forward for the contest!

RealFaction responds:

Good luck! :)

Is there a link for the Art Inspired Contest? I never seem to find it on here.

RealFaction responds:

It's like I said, on the day of the contest i'll post a link to the forum and it'll be on the front page calendar. Tomorrow lol


2017-03-19 07:23:38

Maybe the most epic Judges-Anouncement ever :D

RealFaction responds:

thanks xD

Lol I Still can't w8 to join the NGADM. everyone says it's more hardcore than the NGAUC,

RealFaction responds:

It's the most difficult audio contest on NG, i'd expect it to be. First time me running it, kinda nervous, but hopeful. It'll be interesting.


2017-05-02 08:52:14

i want to enter compitition with this song

RealFaction responds:

It's too early. You gotta wait to post in the auditions forum thread when it comes out. I'll post an announcement about it this month later on and link to it when it's posted. Good luck.
