    Sing a GBAtemp-themed Christmas Carol!

    Yesterday's Competition Winner: TSorbera! Congratulations TSorbera! Lady luck (who actually appears to be a web-based randomiser script) picked you as the lucky winner! Good going.

    [​IMG] Today's competition
    ? On the first day of Tempmas my true love gave to me! ?
    ...Oh, excuse me.

    *ahem*

    Christmas ain't Christmas without a little old-fashioned carolling! Today's competition is asking that you come up and sing a GBAtemp-themed Christmas carol!
    So, write up a nice GBAtemp-themed Christmas carol and record it on a microphone. Be as creative as you can with it; we're judging you on creativity - not on how beautiful your voice may or may not be! Feel free to add extra jingles and sounds to your entry, but you must include your own voice - entries that are completely digitally made will not be accepted. We're cruel aren't we?

    You must turn in your audio file of the GBAtemp Christmas carol in either MP3 format and send us the link or attach it to the e-mail, or alternatively upload it to somewhere like Youtube for online streaming. Just be sure to link to either in your e-mail entry. Good luck and we're looking forward to receiving your entries!

    [​IMG] How to enter?
    Please follow these instructions very carefully! We will not accept your entry if you fail to comply with all the instructions.

    To enter, simply send an email to xmas@gbatemp.net with your entry and forum username.. You may also show everyone your entry on the forums if you so wish, but remember to send the e-mail too otherwise you won't be entered in the contest!

    [​IMG] Winners & prizes
    We will reveal the winner and the prize for this competition tomorrow, when the next competition is announced! Remember that prizes will be getting better and better at each competition, and that we will have a special contest on Christmas Eve! You have until tomorrow (Friday the 19th), at 23:00 (11pm) GMT to enter this competition!

    [​IMG] Special Thanks
    We would like to thank all the staff members that have been involved in the event organization so far, without forgetting our generous partner shops!

    I just wanted to state, that for all of those who thought the quiz was simple... only about 50 of the 200 entries were correct. [​IMG]

    If it makes you feel better though, had I not been in on the answers, I would have gotten some of them wrong as well.
