Submissions for week 6 of SGL are now open!
That's right it's time to post your entries for week 6, remember we strongly encourage entrants to record performances a few days or even weeks early. This way entrants can prepare a few weeks in advance and be ready for the 48 hour submissions window, just be sure to still follow all the rules to ensure you have a valid entry.
Firstly I'd like to give a massive shout out to @ylich, not only have you been the Communities Choice judge three weeks running. You have also written a couple of awesome posts about the Communities Choice award, he has also posted it in Spanish as well :D
He has gone into fantastic detail and some of the reasoning behind the Communities Choice, I have to say it has been fantastic watching him supporting our amazing artists. What really makes us happy, is not only knowing he understands our motivation behind the creation of the Communities Choice, but agrees that it is a unique and rather useful tool.
We know people respond to different songs and music types differently, this is yet another way to let anyone who want's a say to have one. If you don't agree with the judging team, you can now ignore them and create your own weekly winners!
But the best part really is that we love seeing our entrants supporting one and other, whilst SGL is a contest - it really is all about the shared love of music and music was built to bring people together.
Rules for entering SGL

If you haven't already consider joining the SGL discord server , we will now be using it as a method of announcing open and closing times for the contest. This includes the judges window and early announcement of the weekly winners!
This is not only a place to go to find out when things are happening, it is also a place we want to see start having some things to do there. We will be hosting a variety of mini contests, karaoke nights, games nights, random SONIC giveaways for people actively chatting in rooms.
There is really so much in the works, you really will be missing out if you don't jump in. This is also the perfect place to go so you can ask any questions you may have, talk about entries from the week or even just come along for a hangout. This is your community, its up to you to get involved and to help make it all it can be. Yes we're even open to suggestions, so please drop by say hi and see what happening!
Before you go and wow us with your music, I wanted to also mention our amazing sponsors. The people that make SGL possible each and every week, @ausbitbank, @sonicgroove, @creativecoin and @helpie. They are the reasons we are able to host this contest each week, they are responsible for all the prizes the winners and Communities Choice winners get.
So if you have any witness votes available please consider supporting the witnesses that are our sponsors, @ausbitbank and @helpie are both witness sponsors and if you have any spare votes for witnesses we would all greatly appreciate it if you would consider supporting them, so they can continue to support you!
