Default Crazy Mix Contest 2011 - till march 13

Hi Protools users,

The 3rd edition of the Crazy Mix (Mixage Fou in french) contest is open for 3 weeks (until March 13)
You have to make a crazy mix from the 10 sounds available on the website (all the effects are allowed):

http://www.mixagefou.com

The only constraint is the duration: 80 seconds (you do not have to mix all the sounds, you can only use one part, but it is forbidden to use other sounds)

This year you can play in 2 formats : in stereo 2.0 and in surround 4.0. So each participant can play 2 times.

There are some nice gifts to win including Akai controllers and a 3-day stay in Cannes during the Cannes Film Festival 2011.

There are 15 partners (juries) this year who each choose freely their favorite Crazy Mix (no 1st prize, no 2nd prize ... but the independent choice of each jury) There will be at least 15 gifts and probably 15 winners.

This contest is organized on a voluntary basis and receives no money in order to exist. You can help in giving this information to your friends around you.
I remain at your disposal.........

Good contest

I find it hard to register when it's all in French (I think)

Have you read the contest rules, and filled out the form? Here's a snippet...

Quote:
One creation by category is permitted, after filling out the form "deposer son mixage fou"
Click on "deposer son mixage fou" at the bottom, and what happens? That's right - something French (again...I think).

No, I didn't bother going that far. Just looking at the website hurts my eyes. Looks like something created on a computer from 1985. Very unprofessional looking.

Yeah, you're right. I got the '80s vibe for sure. Still, could be cool to whip up a remix.

For the 85 looking it is the graphic direction, no problems here (just personal tastes).
Don't be too cruel...I make this contest with lots of efforts and not many help (some students had helped me on the graphic aspect, all people are volunteers and no money come to make this happen, I think AVID can learn from it...).

For the registering process the translation is coming soon but I can make it here to help you upload your creation now :

"Please fill out all the fields in order to validate your paricipation. You will be contacted in order to receive your gift.

Name...FirstName...Age...
Email...Activity...
Town...Country...
I can come to Angoulême (France) to take back my gift (yes/no)
I can come to Cannes (3 days between may 11 and may 22) for the surround prize (yes/no)

Stereo category
MP3 format : CBR 320kbps, 44100 khz, 16 bit, stereo 80 sec maximum, 4Mo maximum per file
Browse for your file...

Surround category
Same format
Browse for the front stereo file...
Browse for the rear stereo file..."

Hope this helps
