A sound contest is a competition between composers, voice actors, and translators to create the winning sound for a client’s sound brief.
Here on Vinylmint, clients are called contest holders. A contest holder:
- Writes a sound brief
- Names the contest’s cash prize
- Starts their contest.
The contest has four stages and lasts anywhere between 7 and 14 days.
Subscribed Vinylmint sound creators from around the world see the contest listing in the contest feed. They compete for the prize by submitting voice overs, translations, and musical creations that meet the brief.
The contest holder gives direction to the sound creators to help them improve on their sound through one round of competition and advancement to the revision process.
Finally, the contest holder picks a winner. The winning sound creator receives the prize money, and the contest holder gets the sound files, and full copyright to the winning sound.
