Calling all poets! You can get your poetry turned into a song!
Welcome to The Poetry Song Contest!
Do you have a poem that you would love to have put to music?
Would you like your poetry to gain more exposure?
WDC HAS THE BEST POETS! It's time to show them off!
GRAND PRIZE: Your poem turned into a song! You will receive an MP3 of your song. Your song will be featured on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook and also linked right here in this forum to be proudly displayed. Your selected poem will be awarded a shiny new awardicon.
SECOND PRIZE: You will receive a 50% off voucher should you choose to have your poem turned into a song, a Congratulations Merit Badge and an awadicon, plus have your poem featured on the special winners page.
THIRD PRIZE: You will receive a 25% off voucher to have your poem turned into a song, an awardicon, plus having your poem featured on the winners page.
HONORABLE MENTION: You will receive an awardicon and be featured on the winners page.
Some rules to follow:
1) The poem must rhyme.
2) You must allow me to tweak slightly if needed to fit into the parameters of the song, which may include removing or changing a word, repeating some lines, or arranging to fit in lyrically. You keep the copyright to the poem. I have the copyright to the music.
3) Please no swear words in the poem.
How to enter:
Post your poem in the forum using a bitem format. You may enter up to 3 poems.
