i was wondering if u could make some kind of music competition where u can perform an anime op or something like that.
or maybe create a transcribing comp  
cos i want to enter more that one coz right now im only doing doodling contest ^^
i dont have time for the themed art or digital art one ><
or u could make it like some kind of concour thingy like la corda ><
this is just a suggestion coz i wanna enter more comps ^^

We do have the karaoke competition and that's the point at which you could perform an anime OP. Unfortunately entries for this year's competition have already closed, but you're most welcome to enter next year!

As much as I would also enjoy a transcribing competition, being a musician & singer for 20+ years myself, I'm afraid that that type of competition would be too exclusionary. Only people with longstanding training in musical skills would be able to enter or have any chance of winning at all. The current competitions we have on offer are much more flexible to everyone of all kinds of skill levels, so I encourage you to just choose all of the ones you might enjoy and enter as many as you wish / have time for during this year and the next!

or like performing ops by arranging music that has been transcribed for one instrument ;D i find it ok coz im only 13 years old n in high school yet i can do that coz i find it pretty fun(i arranged tsuna awakens the ost from piano to piano+violin+flute+oboe)   or performing on an instrument. OR ppl could just like find music and perform it coz yer i dun sing i mainly play instruments n its my thing ;D  soz bout that just asking >< thnx anyway

Again, unfortunately only musicians and people who play instruments would be able to enter a competition of that type. We prefer our competitions to be more friendly and open to everyone of all kinds of skill levels. So I'm afraid that sort of thing would be too exclusionary. Thanks for your enthusiasm though!

Ohay, for the doodling & art comp, will you post all of them or just the winners?

Like, i know that there will be joke ones, and you may not want to post some of them, but the serious ones would be good.

Thankyou to all the people who came to my table!!! I was at table no.15, sharing a table with Chuc (SMASH posters). Thanks for all the people who came to say hi and/or bought something! It has been a great first experience and I will definitely apply next year!
