Spoiler: show
The rules set for this competition is a bit different from the one in last year. Please read them carefully. If you are unsure about anything, please ask in this topic or PM the managers to clarify. DO NOT ASSUME !! Thanks :shuai:

RULES
For this competition, only the Competition Managers and the Judges are excluded from entering (which are Fowlergirl, Agitjob, and the Judges), all other colored members of APC are free to join, including the designers and promoters.

All the date and time mentioned in this post belongs to the Eastern Time Zone (UTC-05:00) (New York time). Please convert them to your local timezone to prevent confusion.

ALL Entries will be sent to Fowlergirl or Agitjob in APC ONLY (Not Facebook nor any where else).

In total, we will have 3 rounds in this competition, which includes:

- First round: "Acapella Audition" (Oct 15th - Oct 31st)
Goals: Choose about 20-25 contestants to proceed further.

PM us with the below information
Title: [APC Idol 2015] Solo audition entry
================================
- APC Username :
- Youtube channel (optional):
- Stage Name (optional):
- Age:
- Country:
- Audition Song (Title by Artist):
- Audio/Video Link:

For video, please strictly use the provided Intro and Ending constants when you make video: https://app.box.com/s/0f3jafm3lc2dg59240dwuuh08740awuo

Guidelines:
- Every contestant sends in 1 entry ONLY for the audition. If you send multiple ones to different managers, the FIRST one you send in based on the PM timestamp will be your competition entry. Please note!
- The entry MUST be a solo raw vocal - that means no harmonizing, no overlapping, no doubles, and no adlibs in the background; also no effects applied. Imagine how you do audition in real life in front of the judges, you can sing 1 track/melody only, no harmony or overlap. That is how it works. If you break one of those, your entry will be disqualified.
- Noise removal, however, is ok to use but not recommended.
- The entry MUST be an acapella track. NO background music or any of that sort is allowed.
- Your entry must be at least 45 seconds in length and not more than 1:30 min long. Give us enough time to get acquainted with your voice.
- Song choice is up to the contestant, it may be a song in any language.
- Strictly NO foul language in the lyrics. Edit them out if any.
- Submit before 11:59 PM on October 31st, EST (Eastern Standard Time - New York Time)
- Make sure your audition link works until the results of 1st round is announced. We won't be responsible if the link is not available or deleted.

Tips:
- You want to choose a song that shows us the best of your voice and the things you can do. Whether you can advance to the next round depends on how well you perform in this entry. You only have ONE chance. Choose the song wisely to impress our judges! ^^
- You don't have to follow the exact same approach as the original artist in the song. A little improvisation makes things interesting, whatever that may work to your advantage in your submission.
- Refrain from submitting your entry at the last minute in case the website or your network is slow to avoid missing the cut off time on the day of the deadline.
- When sending in your entry and after you hit "Submit", make sure that the pm appears in your "Outbox" folder. If it is not there, it means that your pm hasn't been sent and you need to send again. We won't handle any problem regarding the missing submissions.
- A list of received submissions will be provided and updated constantly in this post, so everyone can follow

- Second round: "Vocal Battle" (Nov 8th - Nov 22nd)
5 SOLO entries and 3 Group entries will be chosen to advance to the Final round.

Hi! For the first round of auditions, can I two different songs on two different takes? I recorded about 30 seconds of a song that I wanted to do, and didn't have the idea of what song I wanted to use to fill up the rest. Unless 30 seconds is okay LOL T__T

Since this is like supposed to kind of like singing in front of the judges love.. If I prepared two songs for an audition, I would break in between / sing a different take, right? :O :clueless:

Ah this is kinda... never happen before xD but thought it doesn't break any rule when you sing 2 song. Just go for it. But make sure to make the transition between 2 songs nicely so the judges won't be shocked =))

Hello, you can actually add a rap part to whichever song from the list that you choose to sing. Making it a little different is interesting too. But please notice that the part that is added in must align to the general rules in APC, means must not have foul language nor sensitive content at all ^^
