    two weeks. one for sound design/composition, one week arrangement and mixdown. and you got an extra weekend to do all your referencing and double checks on the mix.
    any longer and people wont bother thinking they have loads of time, remember about it on teh last week, and then produce nothing...
    get inspired. work fast. deliver ! (y):D

    Nice one. E-mail sent.

    That's an excellent idea about the anonymous voting. And all styles welcome, good idea.

    Looking forward to hearing all the tunes.


    PS: you mentioned donations, maybe put your paypal name or whatever at the bottom of the post, or pm it to entrants? I'll put in a couple of quid.
