No politics. No religion. It's all about the music, people! So keep it clean, polite, and be sure to read our Community Guidelines before posting in the forum.

Ho, ho, ho, it’s that time of the year again!  And what better way to bring in the holiday cheer than with a new challenge. 

As with all the challenges, we like to keep it simple and fun – not too many rules or stipulations. 

The criteria for the 2018 Holiday Challenge are:

  1. The song must be holiday themed, i.e. Christmas, festive, winter, merry, spiritual, etc.
  2. The cover art must have the colors red & green in it.
  3. The song must be at least 2:00 minutes long, so no snippets please.
  4. The song must be completed into the Music Store by December 22nd, 11:30pm.

That’s all, easy breezy!  The song can be a ‘standard’ song, spoken word or instrumental, whatever you like.

We’ve incorporated a new feature for everyone who creates a project for one of our challenges, so please make sure you follow these easy steps.  

How to enter: 

Once you create your challenge project, go to the ‘Project Settings’ on your project page.  Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page.  You’ll see ‘ProCollabs Challenge’ – just click the down arrow and choose which challenge you’re entering, and 'Save'.  That’s it; you’re all done & now entered in the challenge!

This is a challenge not a competition.  Everyone who participates will receive a prize.

  1. Projects with 3 or more collaborators will receive a $10.00 credit and a 2018 Holiday Challenge badge.
  2. Projects with 2 collaborators will receive a $5.00 credit and a 2018 Holiday Challenge badge.
  1. A solo effort will receive a 2018 Holiday Challenge badge.

The whole idea behind these challenges is to have fun, of course.  But, it’s also a way to encourage ‘collaborating’.   So reach out to other members, send invites, and ‘pimp your project’ to get others involved. 

Remember, the deadline is December 22nd, 11:30pm.

Hey Daniel

Doing a remix is fine. Though, just be aware that when you put it in the store, you can't put a price on it without having the necessary license. Other than that, covers/remixes etc. just for fun should be fine.  Though just be aware that there are potentially copyright issues which you should make yourself aware of. 

Have a blast!

Ok this is cheating a bit (actually, a lot)............ this track was from a previous Christmas Challenge and has been reworked as a reggae version, we’re looking to create a “choir” sound towards the end.

Be great to get as many people as possible to create a ProCollabs Xmas Choir...............

Happy Place does not load from the link above. Is it gone?

You’re right the link doesn’t work......I had a look at the active projects and in the music store and can’t see it which would suggest it’s been removed!

The deadline is tonight @ 11:30pm - so make sure to close & complete your projects into the Music Store by then. :)
