Welcome to Britonisea!

Hello and welcome to my home country, Britonisea - the country that will host the upcoming diamond edition of the World Hit Festival. Britonisea is hosting thanks to their first win in seven editions as Josh Morris took the trophy home, winning with 42 points (or just about 50% of total available points) - fifteen points clear making his win one of the most convincing with his song "Mine", which came third in the Britonish National Selection. With yet another decade of the World Hit Festival over, it's now time to celebrate a new one - the 60s! This edition will be very important as we see the ongoing Junior World Hit Festival bidding process and the new Overseership Election this edition too!

Well done to the Achaeans for hosting your second World Hit Festival - we can always count on you for a fruity and sweet production. We now arrive to Britonisea for the eighth time in World Hit Festival history - this time to a new location. Aronyk is Britonisea's seventh-largest city, with over 1 million people living within its city limits. It's not too far away from Josh Morris' home place, Luton, and from other major cities such as Quickenden, Tonesk, and Junterapten. BVC is promising a faultless edition of the World Hit Festival - let's see whether they can deliver just that!


Guy Autriche
World Hit Festival Overseer


What is the World Hit Festival?
The World Hit Festival (WHF) is a multiversal song competition. Each nation shall enter 1 song and 1 artist, and it shall be 'performed' via roleplay. Most nations tend to use a real-life tune as a musical backing, but every entry submitted to the World Hit Festival is required to have original lyrics (ie. if you submit a tune, you must re-write the lyrics), so this does mean that instrumental entries are blocked from entering the contest.

WHF operates with three threads, the OOC, Draft, and IC threads. The one you are seeing now is the OOC/Sign-ups thread, the main place for you to discuss the contest, reveal your entrant, etc. All OOC chatter goes here. The Draft Thread, opened by the host, is the second thread opened up during a WHF contest, and this draft thread is where nations will post and work on their entries until a deadline determined by the host. The IC thread, also opened by the host is the third and final thread attached to a WHF, and it is where the host will transfer your entries.

The World Hit Festival has had a very long history in NationStates, and a thread by the second overseer (Euskirribakondara) has been created to compile this long history. Click here for a thread with links to every OOC and IC thread of all World Hit Festivals so far (updated to WHF53). Click this for a statistical database of all WHF participants. For winners, click here to see a full list of all WHF winners with links to their entries.

Below you can find the rules of the 60th World Hit Festival!

Rules and Regulations...
ENTRIES
  1. For an entry to be accepted, must have at least a tune and a complete set of lyrics but must meet Acceptable Entry Standards for the World Hit Festival in order for it to be accepted. This includes information about formatting and things the Host and Overseer will do to ensure your participation. *1
  2. Reserved RL Tunes Nations must not send a reserved tune from this list. Songs that have been reserved are those that have placed in the quintile of any participating Festival, including Junior World Hit Festival. Songs that do not place in the top quintile are reserved for a year from the IC date of the Festival. You can find all information, and more, by browsing that link. The Overseer will be responsible for checking tunes, with the host double-checking before transferring the entry to the IC.
  3. All or at least most of the written lyrics must be original. Should any user spot any concerns, don't hesitate to let the overseer or current host know.
  4. In order for Semi-Finals to be initiated, there must be enough nations for there to be 13 nations per Semi Final. The number of participants before Semi Finals are initiated will be dependent on circumstances.
  5. The maximum amount of nations that can participate without more than one automatic qualifier (ie the host) is 18 nations per Semi-Final. Once this number has been broken, the top 6 (including the host) will automatically qualify to reduce 18 nations to 15 in each Semi.

CONTEST
  1. A nation is allowed to submit 2 puppets maximum to the contest, meaning that a user can be controlled at most 3 nations in the contest.
  2. Users must send a full ranking of all nations on the IC Thread to the host of the competition when the voting opens. If users usually split their rankings across multiple participating nations (master and at least one puppet), they are free to provide only one ranking - provided it directly aligns with how many points given out across the user's participating nations. Otherwise, the user must send a ranking per participating nation they own. Rankings should not be displayed by any given user until after the Festival has been completed.
  3. The nation ranked first will receive 5 points, the nation ranked second will receive 4 points etc. Nations ranked 6th or below will not receive any points.
  4. When participating with multiple nations, users can only give themselves 8 points maximum. Votes will not be accepted if users give themselves, through any of their nations, more than 8 points.
  5. In the event of a tie, the countback system goes as follows: Amount of nations - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 - 6th places, 7th places etc.

HOSTING
  1. The winner of the competition will automatically be given the right to host the competition. The winner will have 72 hours (maximum) to announce their interest in hosting the Festival to the Overseer.
  2. The host can reveal they will host the World Hit Festival after talks with the Overseer on when to do this. It will still officially be announced on the WHF Network.
  3. If within the first 72 hours, the host either doesn't announce their interest in hosting the proceeding contest or declines hosting rights, the nation who came 2nd will be asked and so on until it reaches the Overseer. The Overseer can give hosting responsibilities to a user placed below them if they are willing to host.
  4. If the host abandons their host duties, the World Hit Overseer will be responsible for what left needs to be done.
  5. We would like to ensure all World Hit Festival hosts can host the competition to the best of their ability. If you have any concerns about hosting if given the opportunity to, don't hesitate to speak to the World Hit Overseer.

6th World Hit Festival Overseer Election

Postby Britonisea » Sat Jun 26, 2021 4:03 pm

6TH WORLD HIT FESTIVAL OVERSEER ELECTIONS
[1st elections][2nd elections] (cancelled, announcement of third overseer) • [3rd elections][4th elections][5th elections]

What is the Overseer position?
The position of the World Hit Festival Overseer is the most critical position in the Festival. The Overseer's responsibility is to coordinate with hosts edition-to-edition, set up the OOC thread, make sure the hosts are on track with their responsibilities, and also make sure that the rules are enforced. As there is only one Overseer in any given term, being elected into this position means you have the power to change this festival as you see fit. Being the World Hit Festival Overseer is an extremely difficult task as you are the only one responsible for the running of the entire Festival (instead of having a committee). Each term of the Festival is approximately a year and a half.

The current Overseer will be working on a guide to the World Hit Festival to help aid the newly elected overseer.

  1. Maintain the World Hit Festival's OOC thread and coordinate sign-ups.
  2. Be in contact with the host throughout the contest to ensure the contest is running smoothly.
  3. Write and enforce the rules of the World Hit Festival, making sure it's up to date and transparent.
  4. Make sure to keep the World Hit Festival and its Junior version active and on time.
  5. Focus on the growth of the Festival, making it increasingly attractive for prospective new users.
  6. Be active and alert, articulate, and not afraid to handle confrontation or enqueries.

Schedule
Open Application Deadline: 11th July 2021
Invited Application Deadline: 18th July 2021
Voting Deadline: 25th July 2021

Over the next couple of weeks, users who wish to assume the role must complete and post the following form:
Code: Select all
[align=center][b][color=#FF0000][u]< < < < < < < < < < I WISH TO BECOME THE WHF OVERSEER > > > > > > > > > >[/u][/color][/b][/align][box][b]Nation name:[/b]
[b]Debuting edition (as user):[/b]
[b]Total number of participations (as user):[/b]
[b]Leadership/hosting experience:[/b]

[b]Why I should be elected:[/b]
[b]How I can make WHF better: [/b][/box]

< < < < < < < < < < I WISH TO BECOME THE WHF OVERSEER > > > > > > > > > >
Nation name: self-explanatory
Debuting edition (as user): Use the edition you debuted as the user not as your nation. For example, if I debut in WHF15 using Izmedu but was now another country in WHF40, I would list my debut as WHF15.
Total number of participations (as user): Total number of editions in which you've entered any one country.
Leadership/hosting experience: Put any experience you have here with either hosting or leadership positions. Your WorldVision experience absolutely counts here if you are a committee member/former host. Additionally, former hosts or overseers of WHF are free to put their experience here. If you do not have direct WorldVision or World Hit Festival experience, feel free to put in whatever experience you think could be comparable and transferable to this position.

Why I should be elected: Basically put your manifesto here. Explain why you think you should be elected as the new overseer of the World Hit Festival.
How I can make WHF better: Similar as the above but emphasize the parts that you wants to see improved or even new things you'd like to see. If you have a vision to how to make the WHF better, describe that vision here,

How will this work?
The way this election will work will be similar to the 5th WHF overseer elections. You will have two weeks to complete the form above. The initial period is the Open Application, which means anyone that has successfully participated in either the 58th World Hit Festival or the 59th World Hit Festival is eligible to apply and post the form above. I encourage anyone who is interested in running right now to try their hand in running for the position. The Invited Application will be the Overseer DMing people who they believe would make a good overseer. They will be given an extra week to submit an application to be the WHF Overseer. Anybody who has participated once over Britonisea's reign as Overseer will be welcome to vote, as long as they sign-up for the 60th World Hit Festival before voting lines open.

Additionally, the current WHF overseer will also have their name on the ballot. To clear up confusion from the previous Festival, there is still a willingness to be the Overseer from the current one and as such, the current Overseer will outline their plans for the 60s decade at the festival.

Both open and invited applicants are required to fill out the form above. After there are enough users who have applied, voting can then begin in earnest. A ballot will be sent out with the complete list of applicants and links to their applications. Users will then be asked to send a TG to the overseer ranking their preference, their first choice being their most preferred down to their last choice being their least. When the new overseer is elected, any remaining time will be spent from JWHF9 and WHF61 training the new overseer. The new Overseer will put their first thread up for the 62nd edition.

The current overseer wishes you all good luck and encourages as many nations as possible to apply. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to TG me or Discord DM me.

WHF59 Round-Up + Rule Change

Postby Britonisea » Sat Jun 26, 2021 4:04 pm



You are able to find the complete breakdown of each national vote in the below spreadsheet. Who missed out on a point? Who rated you the LOWEST? Find out here...



Thanks for an awesome edition, Achaean Republic! It's now onto Britonisea once again to host the competition... Should we take a look at what Aronyk has to offer? Coming right up but before we do that...

Rule Updates!

Old wording...
1. For an entry to be accepted, must have at least a tune and a complete set of lyrics. Incomplete, inappropriate or disorganised/unclear entries will not be accepted at the discretion of the host and the Overseer.


New wording...
  1. For an entry to be accepted, must have at least a tune and a complete set of lyrics but must meet Acceptable Entry Standards for the World Hit Festival in order for it to be accepted. This includes information about formatting and things the Host and Overseer will do to ensure your participation. *1


Whilst I didn't believe there was a need to elaborate further on this rule, I have done so in a cute little document. Most of you will not need to read the two page document as most entries are completely fine but for those of you who are unsure on what qualifies as an entry that meets the standards at the Festival, please feel free to click on the link to find out. Basically, it lists that the Header is a necessary part of the Festival now (especially since it provides information needed for the postcard) and cases in which Stage Directions isn't needed - which perhaps wasn't detailed before. I hope now that there is a criterion the Host/Overseer (who in this occasion is the same person) will follow, the decisions made can be transparent and clear for everyone participating.

BVC | 60th World Hit Festival | Aronyk, Britonisea

Postby Britonisea » Sat Jun 26, 2021 5:17 pm


For the first time since the 53rd World Hit Festival in Bovingdon, Britonisea will be hosting the World Hit Festival with as much ambition and passion as our last hosting which was highly regarded as one of the nation's best hostings. Going into the 60th World Hit Festival, we hope that the organisation of this Festival will be even better than that edition and hoping that through celebrating the diamond edition of the World Hit Festival together, we can make this a very memorable one. Alongside the 53rd World Hit Festival, Britonisea has had the luxury of hosting the World Hit Festival on six other occasions, the 27th World Hit Festival was our first hosting in the cultural capital of the country - the city that went on to host once again twenty editions later at the 47th World Hit Festival with both editions seeing new winners rise to the top and going on to host the next edition afterward. The 35th World Hit Festival was hosted underneath the Junterapten lights, later sung about in Britonisea's entry for the 39th World Hit Festival. The 38th World Hit Festival was held in our capital city, Doportedas and while it was our smallest event with only 11 nations participating, it was our largest arena! The 43rd World Hit Festival was the first Britonish hosting that was no hosted on the mainland, with it being hosted on Ghiezland - a large island with over two million inhabitants. Finally, hosted with our Western allies, Estogium, we hosted the 49th World Hit Festival in Alshkan. While the 60th World Hit Festival has been the longest wait that we have had since the wait between the 27th and 35th World Hit Festival, we believe that we have gained enough experience to host a faultless edition of the World Hit Festival, providing supreme quality and entertainment throughout the duration of the Festival which will be outlined in these official details regarding the 60th World Hit Festival.




Image


We're excited to bring you back to Britonisea for the upcoming World Hit Festival! This edition we will be heading to the city of Aronyk (pronounced Aaron-Nick), which is the secondary city in the the Quickenden Authority. Aronyk is Britonisea's seventh-largest city with over 1.24 million living within its borders. To put that into perspective in comparison to other cities that you may know, the city is around the same size in population as Kyvivre, Machievelihe and Burgendore (there are quite a few cities that have 1-1.25 million people within its city limits), but is around six times more populous than the recent Britonish hosts, Bovingdon and five times smaller than our capital city Doportedas. Junterapten is double the size of Aronyk. Apart from its recent picking to host two group matches at the IBA Football Champions League, Aronyk has remained largest unknown to the wider international community, but is one of the major hubs as it sits on the Wolfrenian-Britonish channel. Despite Aronyk being a rather industrial city due to it being a major hub, there has been much need to improve Aronyk due to its rapidly rising population, which compromises of a lot of people who come to the city to live due to trade. The city lies on the Southern shore of the country making it very pleasant during the summer, with people being able to enjoy temperatures such as 23 degrees celcius to 27 degrees on a normal August summers day with a cool breeze from the channel but depending on whether you catch the city at the right time, the city could reach a sweltering 30 degrees or more! Enjoy your time in the warmth of Aronyk for the Diamond Edition!


Image


As previously mentioned, the Arena Aronyk will host the IBA Football Champions League matches from the 27th June to 10th July before we prepare for the World Hit Festival which means that it's all systems go for Aronyk who is already busy with football fans filling the area. On the 11th July, the builders will move in to work on the stage in super-speedy time but in the case of Semi-Finals, it is likely that another city will host the Semi-Finals - but this will be spoken about in more detail below. Arena Aronyk has a festival area to the back of it which, similarly to what is happening for the IBACL 2021 event, will be turned into a Fan Zone for those who aren't allowed to go into the arena due to not having a ticket. There will be multiple screens, speakers and food stalls so people can entertain themselves throughout the duration of their stay. With performances throughout the event, including from the artists themselves who will be given a chance to perform other songs from their discography, it will really give the true Festival vibes we created so well at our last hosting in Bovingdon.




The stage is a rather simple design that includes five LED panels that makes up the back wall. The LED panels have lights behind them and can turn on its axis meaning if delegations wanted a lights backdrop instead of an LED screen that is possible. Around 4 metres in the air is a large object which is covered in OLED screens which bend around, as you can see in the picture. The "Tube" as it is called which looks a bit like a toilet roll has another screen around it that comes up and down (its similar to the Russian Eurovision stage, I believe). Ideally, a nation's name would be shown on that screen before each act so that can be added into RP. There are also other LED screens that flank the main five panels too which can be used as well. The stage is not a 360 stage, but does have a catwalk out into the audience so if they wanted to be surrounded by people - that is something that they can do. As you can see in the additional images of the stage, there is an LED both on the main stage and the two catwalks (which we're going to say are longer - both catwalks - and stretched down the entire arena to the Greenroom for one of them) that leads to the Greenroom where all the acts will be placed. There are also lights on either side of the stage which are shaped in a diamond formation, of course lending to the theme of the diamond edition. The stage has all the necessary pyros, including but not limited to plumes of fires around the whole stage and the catwalk, golden waterfall at the back of the stage, geysers and smoke machines, industrial fans etc. As holographic material is becoming increasingly common at the Festival, we have the facilities to bring holograms to life, but this would come as a higher price for a delegation to use if that is what they would like.


Image


For the upcoming World Hit Festival, we realised that if we're judging how many nations could participate at the past two anniversary editions at the Festival, a lot of nations could compete. With this knowledge, we have armed ourselves with a fantastic bunch of hosts that will be taking us through the festival one step at a time. From left to right...

Rakesh Hayre (34) Rakesh Hayre is a television personality who, if it goes ahead will host the Semi-Finals. In the case they don’t, he will be our online presence, making exclusive content with all of the acts for you to enjoy throughout the duration of the Festival!

Favourite WHF59 Entry: “Well apart from our own, I’d have to say the song from Beepee – it was so feel good and awesome!”

Anders Duran (39) Anders will be the one of the main Grand Final host in Aronyk. As an musical theatre actor, Anders can sing and dance – but you will have to wait and see what he’s got in store during the Grand Final!

Favourite Non-Britonish WHF Entry: “That is a very tough question – there are so many great songs…I would say, if I had to pick one… it would definitely be Mercedini’s winner at the 34th festival – I know a lot of Britons loved that, we should’ve given that 5 points!”

Priya Thompson (37) Priya Thompson will be one of the two main hosts of the Grand Final in Aronyk. Priya has had some broadcasting experience and she presented the Britonish votes at the 55th World Hit Festival which took place in Fromulya.

Favourite WHF Moment: “I loved seeing ELIANA win the Festival – it was just so close and I remember thinking, will Estogium beat us? It was great fun and I hope we see more moments like that at the World Hit Festival 60!”

Jake Bachelot (30) Jake Bachelot will co-present the World Hit Festival 60 Semi-Finals if they go ahead. In case the Semi-Finals don’t, Jake will join Priya and Anders as the Greenroom host, working closely with Rakesh to bring you all the exclusive content!

Favourite non-Britonish Hosting: “I really like orchestral music and so Todlichebujoku did a fantastic job at hosting the special event a few editions ago – definitely my favourite show - hands down!”


Image


Without giving too much away, we have a star-studded lineup for the upcoming World Hit Festival 60 - including DJ Ash Kaplan who will be working with the winner of the 59th World Hit Festival, Josh Morris, working on a fantastic new song that will open the 60th World Hit Festival in style. Some of you may remember DJ Ash Kaplan as the man who opened Vha Mehlodhivestoile 2021's Grand Final. Josh Morris, obviously, is the reason that we're here in Aronyk and so his involvement in the 60th festival was always going to happen - no question! Zoe Wilkinson, who has participated in the Vha Mehlodhivestoile on multiple different occasions, will come to the World Hit Festival to perform! Zoe Wilkinson also provided backing vocals to a few nations at the 53rd World Hit Festival as well! Finally, Eleanora Buckingham will be getting the justice she deserves at the 60th World Hit Festival as she will perform the song she was meant to sing at the 75th WorldVision Song Contest - without the pressure! We cannot wait to welcome Eleanora back onto the stage. Depending on how many shows that are at the Festival, we may announce some more interval acts.

The Awards for the 60th World Hit Festival will not take place during the Live Grand Final, and instead will take place at the after party which will ICly happen the day after but will be RPed after the winner has posted their reprise. The After-Party/Press Conference can be a chance for us to RP, or you could provide pictures etc of what your act wears at the Awards Ceremony. I will open the IC thread for that sort of thing after the reprise is posted.


Image


The scoreboard is our sleekest design yet and whilst the above picture is the first final version of the scoreboard, there are still some improvements that we need to make until it is finished. As you can see, the scoreboard will see a nation's unripped flag in a square on the side of a nation's name in a white box (guess where that idea came from). When we do the points, it is likely that we will do the normal Britonish version of releasing votes which will be the 4-1 announced without seeing the scoreboard and then the five points one by one, organised in a way for an intense finish. For the five points, you will be able to see who the nation has already voted for so we don't get too confused. The final scoreboard will be revealed during the Live Show and we cannot wait for you to see it all. In the case of the Semi-Finals, we will also show you the scoreboard for the reveal where the top XX of nations qualifies to the final, live. We aim to have the postcards and that Semi-Final reveal be linked - but that is if that process happens and we will have to wait and see how many nations sign up in the first place! Currently, we are planning without but taking extra precautions just in case.


Image


Finally, this World Hit Festival will be focused on making it a great show and so for the host, it will mostly be a no-frills festival but will be of high quality. The Live Draw will happen within an hour of closing the Draft Thread and will ICly be broadcast on BVC One after the 10pm news and reshown during the day on BVC Two. Presenting that will be Anders and Priya - the two Grand Final hosts of the competition. The Live Draw will either determine whether an act will perform in the 1st or 2nd half of the festival or which Semi-Final they will perform in. If the former happens, we will be putting everybody into one pot. In the case the latter happens, we will be doing pots similar to the 53rd World Hit Festival - but also amalgamate this with the Achaean Republic method with Pot 1 being the nations that have performed the best, to ensure they are not all in the same Semi-Final like they were in the 53rd World Hit Festival. Britonisea, of course, will be drawn first.




Postcards designs are still being thought about and will be confirmed during the show, but we are asking for as much information as possible in the hope that it will be used during the show. Please keep an eye out. We will be asking for a picture of something made out of a precious material which includes statues etc and asking for you to choose between 1 and 35. In the case of Semi-Finals, there may be written postcards for those who make the final, but if there's no Semis, no one will receive written postcards.

There will be an emphasis on the YouTube page for this World Hit Festival as well so keep an eye out there!

This edition, we are heading to Aronyk city that, due to its rapid urbanisation, relies on precious minerals and metals to build the city up! What we would like to see from you is a way in which metals or minerals are being/have been used. Great examples of this are statues, large builds or infrastructure (whether that being transport or other), mines or mountains, power plants or even mineral water! It's up to you! Please can you avoid gemstones, however as that will form a major part of the postcards already! Could the image you use be no smaller than 720p, preferably 1920x1080p or and in landscape...

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

ACH for WHF Overseer #PersonalWHF

Postby Achaean Republic » Sun Jun 27, 2021 5:40 pm

< < < < < < < < < < I WISH TO BECOME THE WHF OVERSEER > > > > > > > > > >
Nation name:Achaean Republic
Debuting edition (as user): WHF47
Total number of participations (as user): 13
Leadership/hosting experience: I have hosted WHF54 in La Cañada after the victory of La Intermissión’s Quédate and WHF59 in Orongumilá after the victory of Itamar’s Pass Me By. In addition, I have also hosted the 7th Junior World Hit Festival in Urbania and Juana Díaz, and two editions of the WorldVision Song Contest in Corola (WV20) and Rosario (WV76). AS1 has hosted every editin of the contest alongside regional broadcasters Corolano TV (WV20), AFT (WV76, WHF59) and TVS (JWHF7, WHF54). I was also a member of the WorldVision Committee for WV76-WV80, and is currently one of the two members in charge of the International Broadcast Alliance’s Arts and Culture Division.

Why I should be elected:

During the past decade of the festival, it was my goal to win at least one edition to consider bidding towards becoming the next Overseer. Lo and behold, I was able to win twice with entries that highlight the spirit, identity and progress of the festival and its future. It was also the first time a Spanish-speaking, Latin American nation won the festival and we are proud of that fact! In every hosting, we do our best to provide an immersive environment for our performers to enjoy, and that is what I aim to bring as Overseer-a personal festival for you and me. Because the WHF is what you make of it, I aim to provide a new direction that promotes inclusivity, equality and opportunity for every performer and broadcaster.

How I can make WHF better:
  • I propose, starting from WHF61 onwards, an open competition to provide a permanent visual identifier for the competition in the vein of the Eurovision Song Contest logo. This, however, would not preclude nations from updating or modifying this identifier depending on the theme they would like to present towards the contest.
  • I would propose a serious inquiry towards updating or creating a televoting system unique for the festival, perhaps using the Junior World Hit Festival televoting as a starting point. This might be controversial, considering the WorldVision Song Contest already uses televoting, but I do believe this would increase the excitement and predictability to the contest.
  • I would also modify the triggering criteria for semifinals in the hopes of making it a semi-permanent feature. Currently, the rules allow for at least 27 countries to trigger semifinals. However, I propose to lower this to 25 complete entrants to allow 12 countries per semifinal and the host nation. Automatic qualifiers would be allowed after 30 complete entrants.
  • I propose to make the first senior edition of the year permanently affixed as the Orchestral Edition. Also, I intend to change the timing of the Junior World Hit Festival to twice a year, once in the (Northern Hemisphere) summer and another in the (Northern Hemisphere) winter, nearing Christmas.
  • The WHF is considered to be an experimental contest, and it should be treated as such. So I propose for hosts to, in conjunction with the Overseer, provide additional rules or restrictions for their editions as necessary. Want to include a language restriction for all entries? Go ahead! Want to make every nation send rock songs? You can do that! The goal is to have fun with whatever they can come up with—barring the Orchestral Edition, which would stay in place as allotted. And I must now declare—and not because I’m Achaean—that WHF69 will be a special edition, hehe!
  • I believe the rules may need to be reviewed further. While the current Overseer has done a great job in clarifying the expectations on a complete entry based on an unfortunate incident which happened the last edition I hosted, I do believe we may need to make revisions on other rules, such as puppet voting, the number of points each country can provide to entries, among other things. Not everything needs to be reviewed, but we should take the steps as a community to make the contest better.

I aim to make the #PersonalWHF much more inclusive, creative and above all, entertaining and unpredictable for everybody to compete.

Gracias!

Oh nice, welcome back!

Accepted above. Again due to COVID stuff happening in RL, delays might happen but it shouldn't affect when the draft thread goes up and whatnot.

17 nations have signed up so far for the World Hit Festival - it would be nice to have at least.....double! By the time the sign ups close in a week and half's time - I know a few people who are still yet to sign up so hopefully they pull through! As I said in the bid, I aim for this to be a very efficient and cool edition. It would be great for there to be large audience to see it come into fruition!
