UPDATE**

Contest has been re-launched here:
http://theocarinanetwork.com/topic/7485589/1/?x=0#post8388052




Due to some arrangements to work out regarding the contest, we have put it on hold until further notice.
It won't be down for long - we will swiftly reboot it so the Christmas cheer can live on.

If you have already prepared an entry (or currently working on one) do not worry. The requirements for participants will remain the same.

How many submissions are we allowed? 1? 4?
RULES: To be eligible to win participates must:

-Be a member of The Ocarina Network. Creating an account is absolutely free of charge!

-Create an ocarina performance video playing any Christmas or holiday song on Youtube.

There are no restrictions on how many ocarinas that may be used.
Backtracks and other instruments, including your voice, are welcome.
The ocarina must be the main instrument of the video.

Collaborations are allowed, however, if there are several members from TON that are participating in a single video that video can only be submitted once by only ONE member. The member that chooses to submit the video will be the one representing that entry.

Images are also welcomed for those who are camera-shy or simply do not have access to video recording equipment.

One entry per member.

*drool*....... That bass SHALL BE MINE!!!!!! :rofl: I've been practicing for a month for this!.... actually, all that time was spent trying to match an ocarina to a predetermined backtrack. :facepalm:

One question though: If someone says they don't want the basket, can they give it to the 2nd place winner?
(I'm only asking because some people have allergies.... like me. :giggle: )

Sure! That's absolutely no problem. If the first place winner chooses to opt out of the holiday basket it will automatically go to second place.

Also we know that you have been very eager for this contest and we're glad to hear that you have been practicing, Zero! We will greatly be looking forward to your entry! C:

I have a question!

Is it possible to record a song that isn't a Christmas carol, but is from a Christmas movie? The one I have in mind falls under that category; if anyone needs to know what I specifically have in mind, I can send a PM...

The rules say "Christmas or Holiday song". I'm thinking of doing a non-traditional song.

Well, I would advise to keep it Christmas/Holiday related. It doesn't have to be a traditional Christmas song, but if you're in doubt then you may PM me to make sure it qualifies. :)
Jon, I hope that you'll be able to join in as well. :) Maybe you can even make an ocarina /hangdrum video. :D

Well, Frozen seems like it's intended to be a holiday video.... Kinda. xD Well, I suppose that's alright.

Really, I don't wish to be very strict, but let's just keep it to a Christmas/Holiday related theme though. (^_^;) This is meant to be a fun contest the whole community can take part in, so no stressing and most importantly HAVE FUN! :D

I have my song and my plan! Now, the only questions is whether I an execute it in time. Retirement on the 20th, three kids, two spouses, two grandchildren arriving on the 24th, a bunch of people in a tiny house, it will be close! And if I can remember how to use Final Cut Pro, it has been so long since I fired that puppy up!

In the spirit of Christmas, I thought I'd share some of the holiday sheet music that I've transcribed for my students, and we'll also be playing this music at the December ocarina meetup in Dallas:

A Silent Night Duet (the first part is the melody, and the second part is a harmony part)
http://www.noteflight.com/scores/view/d3e47303edfe6fe8b481f268e29ea3076e33a86e

White Christmas
http://www.noteflight.com/scores/view/be529c806a12026c7063d8db55b5d8785c267750

O Holy Night
http://www.noteflight.com/scores/view/5a8fbf9a3e6cb7a51f2b800f6c04d11eb085a3c5

Enjoy, and have fun in the contest! :)

The answer: Yes.

Holidays songs such as non-traditional Christmas songs, Auld Lang Syne, music related the winter season are all acceptable. :)

Hi Siki, sorry the late reply but I am only now come back from a long drive here were almost 700 Km I drove it again today . I know that everyone has a lot to do around Christmas but believe me the least have the stress I have currently.
As you all know I am very generous with prices here on Ton, and I have donated this Ocarinas as prizes for people who do something for it, make films or whatever the contest is designed ( if it's a painting contest you have to draw pictures ) I am a little ignored with the raffle if you had have asked me before I would told you what I think of that.
The people that donate the prices should be a little informed what happens to the prices.
For me, the idea was to donate more prizes to make the contest more interesting and not just to give away Ocarinas for nothing.

So if I donate these prices, and those are very nice prices, as the alto B3 Ocarina this is one of the best B3 there are. And the birds ar very nice and play very well.

People should do something for their prices, only then it is a good Contest
A.) To win the B3 Alto Ocarina you have to send in a Video with a 10-hole Ocarina played!
( not with a 12-hole or other Ocarina )

B.) To win the 2 birds you have to send in a video with a 7-hole Ocarina playd !
( not with a 12-hole or other Ocarina )

The submitted videos you can judge, however you want.
If you agree with A and B I'm happy to donate the prices,

Please also remember only to send the prices, the costs is over $ 100

Greetings Hans

Hi Hans,

My apologies for misunderstanding. I had sent an email notifying you about the raffle Sam and I had come to an agreement on. I had no idea there was a certain way you wished to give these ocarinas away. Of course their your ocarinas and I want to respect your wishes. If I had known I would never have offered these ocarinas as raffle prizes. I assumed that since you had not answered my email that you were okay with this decision. That was my mistake of course. Previously I had asked how you felt the contest should be handled and since you said it was for me to decide I kept going on with that logic. My apologies, Hans!

I will gladly edit the original post later because right now I'm at work and busy. Sorry Hans and everyone for the misunderstanding! :(

If you already have a 7 hole ocarina in your collection, why would you enter a contest to win another one?

They aren't as common as 10 hole or 12 hole ocarinas, so getting your hands on one in order to make a video is going to be tricky.

But Hans is our generous donor so it's only right to follow his wishes. :)

My ocarina has no hair...either

Hans' 10 hole alto B3 is one of the very best ocarinas I own. It is definitely worth trying to win. It has my highest recommendations. I would love to have the bird ocarinas. Would we be eligible for all the prizes if we include a 7 hole ocarina and a 10 hole ocarina in our performance?

Hahaha! This idea struck a funny bone with me. We could just as easily say "Why enter to win a 12 hole ocarina if you already have one...or a 10 hole ocarina?" We can never have enough!

Yes, I know. It's ironic that I would say that considering I have well over 50 ocarinas. :grin:

I meant that in the sense of just having a 7 hole ocarina in the first place. They aren't as typical as most 10 and 12 hole ocarinas so it's harder to find tabs for them. Of course, if you can read music then that's not an issue.

I'm wondering if Hans would consider prizes for people submitting pendant ocarina videos? I've seen some nice Mozart pendants on his website that I wouldn't mind winning. I'm always up for getting more pendants for my collection.
