NEW YORK, Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- VeeWall Vocals is a groundbreaking new vocal performance competition, featuring original, uploaded performances from ordinary people. VeeWall.com, an online platform for user-generated video media, is sponsoring this contest. The winner will be decided by fan voting and will take home a check for $100,000.
The VeeWall.com Vocals contest seeks original vocal performances. No cover songs or otherwise copyrighted material is acceptable. The contest also prohibits layered, altered or auto-tuned vocals. The uploaded performance must be no more than three minutes long and contain the voice and image of only one person - the contest entrant. The video must have been made exclusively for the VeeWall Vocals contest and not used for any previous contest or promotion.
Legal residents of the United States, except Florida, aged 15 or older at the time of entry are eligible to participate. The entry period for the competition runs from October 22 through December 9. Voting takes place from December 10 through March 22. Contest entrants are encouraged to drum up support for their videos through all available social media channels. Total vote count will be the sole determination in selecting a winner.
Contest voting is open to all registered users of VeeWall.com. Votes are limited to one per person and per email address, per day for each submitted video. Automated voting or any other form of vote manipulation is prohibited. In the unlikely event of a tie, the contest sponsor will cast the deciding vote.
The mission of the VeeWall Vocals contest is to reward exceptional but previously unknown talent. The recent explosion of social media has made this kind of grassroots talent scouting possible. Rather than traveling to a distant audition, which requires an investment of time and money, VeeWall Vocals lets users show off their skills without leaving their home. The rules of the contest ensure that each entrant displays their natural abilities. An extended voting period gives participants an opportunity to build interest and buzz around their entry.
"Our mission is to provide vocalists an outlet to showcase their talents without the drama and story lines that other competitions so heavily rely on," said CEO Cory Kwon. "The music world has evolved to a 'do it yourself' attitude and VeeWall Vocals will push talented performers to market their original content to America. The beauty of this competition is that everyone has a chance."
In addition to the singing competition, VeeWall.com provides a secure hosting environment for a variety of user-generated video content. Users can upload anything from funny kids moments to their own music or news videos. VeeWall merely asks that users refrain from uploaded copyrighted material.
VeeWall is a new online destination for audiences who are looking to explore the world of video entertainment. The site creates platforms for users to share original videos with their families, friends and fans. VeeWall's mission is to provide a virtual stage for performances, presentations and demonstrations, all within a secure and positive environment that fosters creativity and social connection. The VeeWall Vocals contest, which will select one lucky winner in 2013, is the first major event for the community.
