Rules of the game
The Thomann X-Mas Song Contest 2016 consists of two rounds. Round 1 starts today, on the 24th of November and continues up to and including the 11th of December. During the first round, you upload your own X-Mas song to YouTube. You can upload a video or if you want to just upload the song, you can use this image. Most importantly, you should add “ThomannXMas2016” to both your title, as well your tags, so that our jury is able to find your song. Your song can not be a cover and must be your own original composition. A personal video is also welcome, but is not a must. Whether it’s a metal anthem or a classical symphony – all musical genres are welcome!
Among all the X-Mas songs, 5 finalists will be selected by our jury. This year they will also be supported by BACKSTAGE PRO, the social network for musicians. Criteria include musical quality of the composition, authenticity, creativity and passion. The Jury will also consider your opinions. So vote and leave comments on the YouTube posts and support your favorites! Finalists will be notified personally on December 15th on YouTube via private message.
The final round will take place on thomann.de starting from the 16th of December until the 22nd of December. The official Thomann X-Mas Song of 2016 and placements of the individual finalists are expected to be announced on the 23rd December 2016.
Important note: All winners will be notified on 23rd of December 2016 immediately after the voting, via YouTube. After receiving the prize notification via YouTube, the winner and other finalists must contact Thomann by the 1st of January to confirm their acceptance of their prize, otherwise the prize will be forfeited and we reserve the right to pass the prize on to the next participant.
The Songs of the 5 finalists will be made public after which you choose by voting: who shall claim the main/first place prize. Additionally we will randomly draw among all the people who voted and give away five gift vouchers with a value of 50 euros each!
