Magnatune and ccMixter have generously offered their help to get this going. The Amarok project will award the winner with fame, glory and a load of cool prizes, including $100 US dollars in cash and cool Amarok swag. The 2 runners up take away some swag as well. Read on for the rules of the contest.
So take some songs from the Magnatune pool, get mixing and submit your jingle at ccMixter.org
Judgment will be done by a totally-biased panel of Amarok people!
A few boring words on licensing...
As this jingle will be distributed along with Amarok 2.0, by non-commercial as well as commercial distributions, the jingle needs to be released under the Creative Commons by-sa license.
Magnatune has allowed Amarok jingles using their samples to be released under this license. However if you use samples from any other source, they need to be under the correct licence or Amarok cannot use it.
Good luck in your efforts to help us make Amarok 2.0 rok the experience of music lovers everywhere!
