The contest is DONE!! 162 entities!! Winner will be announced soon.
Here is link to all but 1 entry
Welcome one and all the first video contest that Ukeeku.com has ever held, and like many other things it is being done a little differently.
Small Rule Change
The premise is simple; take a classically electric song (Guitar, Keyboard, violin, digiereedo…) and do it on an acoustic uke. Simple right?
- You can use as many instruments as you like, the acoustic uke has to be the prominent instrument
- Any style (Blues, rock, country, metal, punk, hip-hop…)
- Sung, instrumental, mimed, signed…..
- You can enter as many songs as you like, with as many people as you like
- Either say, have a sign that says, or some nice intro screen “Ukeeku.com Acoustic Challenge 2012”
- Enter by Posting your video Here, it is on Ukuleleunderground.com’s Forum *This CHANGED Jan 11,2012
- Submitted by February 14, 2012 midnight Central Time
- everyone can enter, if you live in the CONUS I pay shipping. Outside of that we split it.
Yes I will judge you, along with some other people that I deem impartial. THIS IS NOT A POPULARITY CONTEST. It does not matter how many views you have or how “cool” you might be. We are going to choose the best video based on song, composition, video editing, and all that jazz. A simple video is nice if done well. Be creative, lively, and just have fun.
One Grand prize winner wins: Eleuke acoustic (EAS-C), Kala Round-about amp, Zoom A2.1U Acoustic Pedal, Cooper Stand, G7th Ukulele Capo. Worth roughly $550 US
What about the losers? Sorry I mean runners up. What do you get? I always feel bad for those that put their hearts and souls into videos and go away empty handed. So everyone else will be entered into a random drawing (1 Entry per song) for the other Eleuke acoustic…and a ton of other things like other stands and cases, shirts, and things I may get at NAMM 2012.
Go crazy and spread the word.
