Moderator(s): Have I posted this here before? I honestly don't remember, and since I don't see it, I either haven't posted it, or it was pulled.  I'm not sure which, so I'm taking a risk.


Are you a musician of Asian heritage?  If so, we would like to invite you to participate in our online contest.

Grand prize: a chance to demonstrate your musical talents in front of a live audience and music industry professionals

The Vancouver Asian Film Festival (VAFF) aims to support and promote North American-Asian artists.  While in the past our main focus had been on filmmakers, we are now officially launching a new event in partnership with Arc2 Intertainment to support singers/songwriters of Asian heritage.

The contest steps, rules and regulations are listed at the link provided.  Basically, you have until August 10th, 2007 to post a video of you performing original music onto the VAFFmusic YouTube Group here:

http://www.youtube.com/group/vaffmusic

where YouTube voters will have a chance to pick their favorite 3, and the final winner will be chosen by ARC2 judges.

Remember, the earlier you post a video, the more votes you may be able to generate!

The contest is free.  All entrants will gain exposure and the notice of ARC2 Intertainment talent scouts.  The winner will perform 3-4 original songs in front of a live audience and music industry professionals at Arc2 Intertainment's summer "Stripped" Benefit Charity Concert in downtown, Vancouver on August 30th, 2007.

Venue: Performance Works, Granville Island, Vancouver, Canada.

[Sorry, due to a very limited budget, we cannot cover any travel or accomodation costs.]

Looking forward to seeing your video!  Good Luck!

The Top 3 will be announced, and these participants must be able to travel to Vancouver (at their own expense) to meet with Arc2 Intertainment's event judges.
