Hi all,

We know you've all been working hard on your Covers Comp entries, and really do appreciate the time and effort involved. You've done us proud again! laugh

In order to do the judging justice, we have taken the difficult decision to delay the end date by a few months, to February 28th 2006. We are still hoping that Warren will be able to judge again, but if he's not able to at this time, it will give us the chance to find a suitable replacement for this year's comp.

On the upside, it will also give you the chance to get more entries in (for those who said they needed a little more time) or to give final polishing touches to already-submitted tracks, should you so wish. smile

We hope this isn't too disappointing for everyone geared up for the end of this month, but we feel it's the best decision to make.

So - keep on submitting those tracks, folks! There will be an update of newly submitted tracks in the next day or two, and you now have until February 28th 2006 to make further submissions.

Have fun! excited

Hi!
That's good for me, so I think I will be able to compete. Not much time during the summer-months :rolleyes: .

Probably a good idea to delay it - there doesn't seem to be too many entries at the moment, so hopefully the delay will encourage a few more people. I might even have a go at a couple more remixes over the next few months.

This is definitely welcome news; I've been considering doing something. But between being so busy at work and distracted by ideas for my own tracks when at home, I've not gotten around to starting something for the competition. I should take advantage of the additional time...

That's never stopped other people on here submitting tracks...(& before someone starts, not aimed at anyone in particular ok!)

Why don't you submit them as instrumentals instead? bemused

I've done a couple of versions of "One Small Day" so far. Can't decide which one to submit, though.

If I do feel so inclined, since there'll be time when we get back home, I MIGHT submit an entry. Not sure if I will yet. :p

Oh my God! I'm sorry I didn't see this! I haven't been paying as much attention to the forum as usual. nervouslaugh

Thanks for posting the link to one of my entries from last year! I didn't know you cared... kiss wink I'm not sure it really shows my true talent (there's always room for improvement), but it's pretty good. What about my other one though? laugh
