Proposal Forms and Entry Forms

"Stir up the gift that is in you," and please keep on stirring until your song, story, or meme is finished and submitted. You keep working and we will keep praying.

Proposal Form -- Song-writing, English

SUBMIT BY POSTING IN FACEBOOK GROUP

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Download and complete the Proposal Form above. Post it as a file attachment in the Facebook group, “SYNC 2020 Contests.” This is a private group, visible to other contest entrants but not to the public. (If you object in principle to participating in a Facebook group, write SYNCx2020@gmail.com to discuss an alternative.)

 

How to join the group so you can post your proposal there:

  1. In Facebook, go to your home page and click GROUPS under EXPLORE in the menu.  

  2. Type “SYNC 2020 Contests” into the SEARCH box.

  3. Click the button “ + JOIN GROUP” at the left side under the group’s banner. We will approve you, and you’re in.

 

After joining, you will be able to post your form and see our comments on it. You will also see other people’s forms, and they can see yours. This contest is not a secret process but a collaborative learning process.

 

CASH BONUS FOR EARLY BIRD PROPOSALS -- $10 or $25

 

If you post your song proposal soon, you help build momentum for the collaborative process in our Facebook group, and we will reward you for that. 

 

If you submit your Proposal Form by February 29, 2020, and we approve it, you will receive either $10, if you give us a PayPal account where we can transfer it, or a $25 gift card if you pick it up in person at the Global Consultation on Music and Mission in Dallas in July 2020. Consider the extra $15 a contribution to your trip expenses. The early bird bonus is for your Proposal, not for the actual Entry Form that you will send with your completed song by April 30th.

 

APPROVAL PROCESS FOR PROPOSALS

 

We normally post responses to proposals within three days. If your proposal’s first draft is not approved, we will try to ask questions and/or suggest adjustments that would make it acceptable. You may then re-submit it or submit a different proposal. Each song-writer is limited to one active proposal at any one time and, at the end, to one Entry Form.

 

After your proposal is approved, your name gets added to our “approved” list. We will pray for you and encourage you occasionally by e-mail. We want your song to get finished, videoed, and put up on YouTube. Don’t let your fire die out when your song is 50% or 75% done!

 

MOVING ON FROM PROPOSAL FORM TO ENTRY FORM 

 

When you eventually submit your Entry Form and your song, I (Stan Nussbaum) as gate-keeper will do a final check to verify that the song is in line with your proposal that was approved. Then the song and the Entry Form will be passed on to our panel of judges, who are not members of the Facebook group and will not see the discussion, so no question you ask can reduce your chances of winning.
