Attention music artists! Get your music making skills ready because Pony.fm is launching a special contest for the Christmas season! Do you think you can produce the best Christmas/Hearth's Warming song? We’re holding a song contest to find the best Hearth’s Warming songs this season. They can be original songs or remixes of some of the show’s songs from the Hearth’s Warming episodes.

 

To submit, just upload a track to Pony.fm between now and the 18th of December and make sure to check "Submit to Hearth's Warming Contest" in the track editor.

 

The best three songs made by you will be featured on the homepage of Pony.fm on the week of Christmas and you’ll be receiving an Amazon gift voucher ($50 for 1st place, $25 for 2nd and $10 for 3rd). Songs that are not featured in the homepage will be put into a Hearth's Warming playlist for all to enjoy.

Submissions are open right now! We’ll close the submissions on the 18th 20th of December and the winners will be announced a few days before Christmas. Please be sure to read the official contest rules. If you want to collab with other composers, feel free. So, what are you waiting for! Get out there and start making some great tunes!

 

EDIT: We've extended the closing date to the 20th!

FAQs:


Will you accept Winter Wrap Up Remixes?
No. They take place canonically after Heath's Warming and are not accepted. We're looking for Hearth's Warming related songs

Does it matter when I started working on the song?
Nope. You can submit existing songs or brand new songs. You can even submit songs that are already uploaded, just open the track editor and check the submit box

I don’t live in the US, can I still win a gift voucher?
Yes! We’re quoting the gift voucher amount in US Dollars. However if you live outside the US and win the contest, we’ll try to get you a gift voucher on your country's Amazon website of equal value. If you live in a country where Amazon doesn’t operate or doesn’t provide gift voucher codes or we can’t get you one for other reasons, we’ll try to find an alternative prize of equal value

In case you haven't seen, Poniverse just announce Making Christmas Merrier V, our fifth annual charity drive. We're aiming to raise $3000 for Charity: Water. MCM is our big annual charity drive for the holidays. If you're interested you can check out the thread over here to donate.

 

Oh and as we raise money, we'll be announcing some stretch goals. No hints or spoilers, but some of them do involve some staff doing some very embarrassing things :) The only way to find out what they are is to get out and donate!

Sorry man :( In order to keep things fair, there's a clause in the terms, specifically this one "Members of Poniverse are allowed to enter this contest with the exception of those who are directly connected with the administration or development of Pony.fm and/or administration or judging of this contest." So anyone who is involved with Pony.fm can't compete, want to avoid suspicion of rigging

I'd really love to participate, and be it just so I can finally use all those Christmas cliché sounds I've got at hoof. I've always wanted to make a Hearth's Warming song, at least ever since I acquired that Yamaha FM expander.

 

However, I don't know whether I'll make it in time, what with three more pieces of music that have to be completed and released before the end of the year. (That kind of deadline that really forces you to finally get something done...) My way of making music is quite time-consuming. And I don't even have a solid idea for a Hearth's Warming song yet.

Thank you so much. I wasn't able to start until this weekend, and it makes me feel a lot more comfortable knowing that I have a little more time to tweak my composition instead of having to rush the whole thing quite so much.

 

EDIT: just for clarification, to qualify, I must submit my track at or before 11:59 pm GMT on the 20th, correct?

The submission box on the site will disappear at 11:59:59 pm GMT on the 20th. As long as you check the box and hit save before that time you should be good

It's definitely been submitted, I'm listening to it right now. It appears your user account has been disabled, do you want me to re-enable it for you?

 

EDIT: Ah I see why. You've got two accounts, https://pony.fm/electron and https://pony.fm/electron-disabled You've submitted the track using the disabled account
