I wonder if there’s a fee? I wonder if it has to be video? Or could it just be audio? I wonder if there is any fine print I should know about before I commit? I wonder if I can find out without actually entering? I wonder what the annual rainfall is in Schenectady?

I listened to about 20 of the entries. It invites you to vote. I wonder if that’s how the winner will be chosen? Whoever can get the most unique e-votes. I couldn’t hear many of them. Many of them seemed weak as THE hook, the main idea of a Song. Some were instrumental and not exactly ‘hookish’.

There will always be another song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? http://www.garyeandrews.com

Hey Gary - thanks for your interest. There’s no fee whatsoever to enter, it’s completely free. The submission doesn’t need to be a video of you performing your hook, but you must at least upload the audio of your hook to YouTube and then submit that YouTube URL on the entry form at http://www.fiverr.com/thebighook. For fine print, there’s a link to the terms and conditions right underneath the entry form. For voting, the votes on the gallery page you checked out make up 30% of the final vote. The rest of the vote will be determined by our 6 judges that are featured on the contest page.

Hope that helps and you decide to enter!

Ben

Oh sure! Just gloss over the rainfall in Schenectady thing. That’s cool. My mom won’t tell me either.

Thanks Ben for the info.

Check it out folks! Could this be something to advance your dreams?

Ben, I’m still afraid to put in my email address. Am I ‘joining’ Fiverr just by doing that? What am I joining? Will I get a bunch of emails about who knows what if I join?

And thanks Gavin for the rainfall data. I’ll take a raincoat.
