Can you hear ALT in space? Audio design contest

Alternative Party needs your audio design skills. Design a theme song for Alternative Party 2010. It should convey the space theme of the event and take listeners on a journey of space exploration. Whether this musical voyage goes far beyond our galaxy or stops right here on planet Earth is totally up to you.

The theme song will be played in the actual event before and after live gigs, presentations and demonstrations on the stage. Winner of the contest should be able to provide a shorter 5 second jingle version of the song as well.

The prize is 500$. In addition to winner receiving the prize money, winner will also be awarded with event tickets. Traveling fees are not included. There will be a prize award ceremony for the winner at the event.

The contest can be found from AudioDraft contest page


There will be more contests. Stay tuned!
