Microvision Song Contest
The Microvision Song Contest is held between active micronations, by analogy with the Eurovision Song Contest. The purposes of the Contest are strengthening of international relationship, establishment of friendly exchanges, and cooperation in the cultural sphere. Also the Contest enhances the prestige of micronations in the world, attracts attention of the world community to the development and life of micronations, which is important for the fragile micronational world. The founders of the contest are two actively developing stable micronations – the Republic of Lostisland and the Mnoer Empire. The Rules of the Contest are easy and clear, the participation in the contest is open for all micronations.
The full Rules of the Contest are available on the Official website of the Contest. The most important points of the Rules are here:
- a micronation, which would like to participate in the Contest, should write an application to the Organizing Committee. The applications for participation will be accepted until November 1, 2011. After recieving the Confirmation of Participation, the micronations should start the national selection - period from November 1 to November 10, while each micronation should choose the song which will be represented on the Microvision Song Contest. Differently from the Microvision Song Festival 2011 - on the Microvision Song Contest can be presented any songs, not obligatory performed by citizens of the participating micronations. The represented songs can be even performed by such famous singers and groups like the Beatles, ABBA, Queens etc.
The choise can be made via Universal voting, when all citizens of the micronation can offer the song and it will be voted on the Universal voting, or personally by the Head of State. The song either can be written and performed by the citizen of this micronation, or by foreigner;
- after choosing the song, which will be presented on the Microvision Song Contest, it should be sent to the Organizing Committee as a audio- or videoclip. When all micronations - participants will send their clips, the Organizing Committee will publish a videoclip with all presented songs, so that it could be voted on the International selection;
- the International selection will start at November 1 and end at November 10, 2011. During this period all nations - participants could make votes for the presented songs using the score system where 12 scores is the maximum mark, 0 - the minimum;
- after the end of the International selection the Organizing Committee will count all the marks and determine the winner. The winner is considered the micronation, whose song gained the largest amount of scores.
