Inspired by Song - April Contest Announcement!
Most people love movies. Perhaps you like comedies, or action movies, or romantic dramas. One common element that binds films is the music that sets the tone, both through original score and with the inclusion of songs that help to drive the story or to serve as a great backdrop during specific scenes.
For April's contest, the theme is "INSPIRED BY MOVIE SONGS". There are tons of possibilities here. The only requirement is that the song must have appeared in a movie or on a soundtrack. As usual, I have a few thoughts of my own on this topic, so I may try to get a post out in the next few days myself.
Please keep in mind that the post doesn't have to discuss the movie at all, just the song and why you like it.
So, bring out your favorite movie song(s) and share them in order to earn some guaranteed bonus points! As with our previous contests, the scoring is relatively generous for the winners (see all details below).
- The post must be tagged INSPIRED BY MOVIE SONGS. You can title it whatever you like.
- All entries must be submitted between April 20th and April 30th.
- Only one entry per person will be allowed, but you can use multiple songs if you prefer.
- Post your entry in the groups Inspired By Song! and Active Rain Addicts, along with any other groups that you want to use.
The judges will be the founders of the Inspired By Song! group (Adam Waldman, Paul Slaybaugh and Me).
Although the judges are free to comment on any and all of the entries, any comments made during the contest will not be an indication of the final results.
Grand prize winner - 1000 points
500 points for up to five honorable mention posts
200 points just for entering the contest (These points are in addition to the 200 points that you receive for every post, and whatever bonus points that you get for comments from Active Rain).
Let me know if you have any questions. I hope to see a lot of great entries this time!
