As the title says, it's a song contest. Basically the main idea is similar to Eurovision Song Contest (ESC). Ofcourse this is an online song contest and is also a bit different than the ESC.
The idea was born in Summer 2005 if I remember it right. Back then I was an active member of several song contests. I loved the idea of listening to music from almost all over the world. That's why I wanted to make my own song contest. I wanted something simillar to other song contests, but at the same time something completelly different. I often feel like not fitting into this world. So I got the idea to create my own world, my own planet. Jollyplanet was born and also a first country, Jollyland. To be honest, when I started with this online song contest, I thought that noone will like the idea. But I am glad and proud that I was totally wrong. On Jollyplanet almost 100 countries were created. Not all of them compete now. But they are still a part of Jollyplanet and will always be.
How exactlly does the Jolly Song Contest (JSC) work? If you want to start competing, you need to create your own country. For a start the name of a country and a flag would be enough. Ofcourse you can create other things too (maps, anthem, currency, language etc). You need to send me the infos to my email, which is written below. To start competing you need to send me a song. What kind of song? You can read more under 'rules'. But basically almost any song that hasn't competed at ESC will be good. So far we have had almost all kinds of songs. All sorts of styles, instrumental songs, covers, players singing the song etc. On a specific date of a running edition I will upload the songs to this page. You will download them, listen to the songs and give points to them. When you're done, you'll send me the points/votes. When the voting period will close, I'll publish the results and announce the winner. You can read more under 'rules' which are written in several languages.
