IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING WORLDVISION 40 AND WORLDVISION 41


For WorldVision 40, we are hosting a "Q&A" session. Telegram your questions to the WorldVision Committee during the sign-up period and we will endeavour to answer as many of these as possible.

WorldVision 41 will see the Committee elections, which take place every five editions (the last such elections being at the end of WV35; we have moved this from the end of WV40 to the sign-ups for WV41). If you wish to be considered, you will have to write a manifesto and post it in the sign-up thread during WV41. YOU MUST TAKE PART IN WORLDVISION 40 TO BE ELIGIBLE TO BE A COMMITTEE MEMBER. The finer points of the election will be announced later.

A beginners guide...

The WorldVision Song Contest, based on the Eurovision Song Contest aims to provide and unite nations from different parts of the World through music. The WorldVision Song contest is an outlet to showcase the popular or native music of your nation. As with every contest, there are a few simple regulations that need to be adhered to.

  1. The contest is based upon the Eurovision Song Contest: nations will "perform" their song whenever they choose, and after the deadline and any interval act if appropriate, nations vote, ranking their top ten songs in the following format: 12-10-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. Nations may not vote for themselves.
  2. No real-life song can be entered into the WorldVision Song Contest; of course, the melody can be used but at least 80% of the lyrics must be re-written. Translations of real-life songs will result in immediate disqualification.
  3. Nation's are free to choose to host a national final or internally select their representative.
  4. It is compulsory to vote. Failure to do so will result in a one-contest ban.
  5. Each nation may enter ONE puppet nation; the master nation must confirm their puppet. Should a nation is found to be in breach of the one-puppet nation rule, sanctions and a disqualification will be put in place.
  6. A debutante nation cannot bid to host the WorldVision Song Contest. A nation must have entered and completed one Contest in order to qualify to host a Song Contest. Furthermore, a nation that has put a host bid CANNOT vote for their own bid. This ensures a democratic, and fair result.
  7. If a nation enters a puppet nation, the maximum amount of points that can be awarded to each nation is up to five points thus ensuring a fair and more equal chance for all nations to succeed within the Contest. If a nation is found to have awarded a higher amount of points, the committee will first allow said nation to alter their votes. If said nation fails to adhere to Committee reminders, the votes will be rendered void and will result in disqualification.
  8. If you suspect another entry to be either wholly or mostly plagiarised, please telegram the WorldVision Committee with your concerns. The committee will then review the entry before making a judgement. If your entry is disqualified for whatever reason, you will not be reinstated even if you edit your entry.
  9. Only the current host of a Contest or the WorldVision Committee can reveal results during the voting process.
  10. Under no circumstances will bullying, offensive and/or intimidating language or provocations of any form be accepted within the Contest, within both IC and OOC threads. WorldVision promotes peaceful and friendly environment. Failure to comply will result in disqualification. If at any point, you feel you are a victim, or feel someone has been victimized by another nation, contact the Committee, or a member of the Committee immediately. The Committee will ensure anonymity/confidentiality at all times.

Hi. The weirdest act in WV history will represent us... The Ownerist Fonzy Bear Band will be singing The Owner is Here to the tune of Hallelujah by Gali Atari and Milk & Honey. What, you've never naked teddy bears before?

ETV has announced that Elejamie will return for the 40th WorldVision Song Contest, as will Cerin Erali and Flynn Taggart as commentators. Despite dropping out of WV39 due to poor results and poor viewing figures, ETV are also hoping that Elejamie's entry for this contest (see next paragraph) will bring them their first top 10 finish.

Entry: Renford Boys (featuring King K and Amili Jamuri) - Pimps at WorldVision
Elejamie (English); Elejamia (Spanish); Elejam (Iyilim) - Denonym: Elejamian - Pronounced (English): Eh-leh-jah-meh

OOC: Just some guy who does stuff.

Chámelíyá signing up. I've got some ideas of what I might do so there may or may not be a national final. Also, I'll be in Germany for the I first part of the contest so don't expect too much from me this edition.

And just so people know my intentions, I am interested in running for the Committee next edition.

Dating back to WV36....

Ekoz wrote:I know it's a long way off, but I was thinking, for the 40th edition there should be a Congratulations: 40th Anniversary show as well as the contest with previous winners battling it out?

The songs could be shortlisted during the 39th, so it would be easy and wouldn't interfere with any song-writing or bids etc. Just a suggestion, but I think it'd be pretty cool to commemorate 40 editions.


Doing something like this, for WV40, would be interesting and fun to do imo....though we better plan it like right now if we want to get there eventually.

Stargazer is a national singing competition show run on Vettrera Central Broadcasting. In honor of the 40th edition of the contest, the 6 semifinalists have been allowed to produce a song, with the song with the most votes being chosen to represent Vettrera in the Worldvision Song Contest. The runner-up is also likely to represent Vettrera in the World Hits Festival

(OOC: Because I will soon be leaving home for a month, I need to prewrite this entry. That means voting will not be open as long as it usually is. A date for voting to close will be posted later. Please vote in the standard format where 6 points are awarded to your favorite song, 5 to your next favorite, and so on and so forth.)
