First and foremost, on behalf of the entire LPA staff, I would like to apologize to you all for not yet announcing a winner for August's edition of LPA Playback. I would also like to apologize for the exclusion of the September edition of the LPA Playback competition. We have been greatfully overwhelmed with the number of quality entries for our first rendition of the LPA Playback and we can assure you that a winner for August's competition will be announced within the week. Further, the LPA Staff have pledged to announce future winners and competitions on time, as opposed to the delay that we had for August. Thank you for your entries in August and thank you for understanding. That being said, we are proud to announce that the competition for the month of October is: LPA Playback You read that right, we are doing it again. We are encouraging the musicians on our website to write, and record their own original music for potential feature on our website. You may either write and record a song as a solo artist, or collaborate together as a team with other LPAers to submit your song. The only thing that's important is that it is all original, is not a remix of another artist's music or a cover, and is your OWN work. There are plenty of bands or artists out there who are Linkin Park fans and who have made their own music either together or as an artist, but do not do remixes. With LPA Playback we hope to change that, and give notice to some of the original music currently happening within the Linkin Park fanbase. What makes this very different from the MMUs is that there will be no theme. You can be an EDM artist, Hiphop artist, rock band, jazz band...anything! We just want to hear YOU. Users must submit their entry as a reply to the announcement thread, and may use SoundCloud or YouTube to host their works. All SoundCloud submissions must feature THIS GRAPHIC as the album art, and likewise all YouTube videos must contain the aforementioned graphic in some format with the words "LPASSOCIATION.COM LPA Playback Entry:" appearing somewhere within the video/soundcloud upload title. This is done to help spread word about the monthly competitions so that more submissions can be made possible [Note: Including the above graphic in your submission (as either soundcloud album art, or somewhere in your youtube video) is a requirement. Failure to do so will make your entry unable to be considered in the competition. ALSO IF YOU USE SOUNDCLOUD, PLEASE ENABLE DOWNLOADS OF YOUR TRACK AS WELL AS EMBEDDING.] As of posting this, the competition is officially open and will be running until October 31st. Good luck to all, and we hope to hear as many, if not more brilliant entries than we recieved in August!
