    So should this be just singing? Like with no additional music in the background. Maybe I'm overthinking this but a carol is usually something people sing out on the street with no music right?

    Does the winner have the option to get a new XL or only the standard size?

    Well, I mean, you could go all out and layer multiple tracks with you harmonizing with yourself or with recorded instruments or something, but yeah, otherwise carols are generally performed either completely acapella or with only piano accompaniment when singing is involved. I'm sure they don't care how much you choose to do though as long as your own voice is included and it has that "Christmas jingle" vibe while fitting the other couple smaller requirements.

    Can it be a parody? Like with words from a classic christmas song changed around a little. "I'm dreaming of a white Tempmas."

    That's what I was going to ask. I have an idea of using an existing song that'll have the same melody but with changed lyrics. It's not just an existing song, but it also has a copywrite on it.

    Ok. Is UTAU accepted, since technically it is still my voice?

    Urgh, I so wanted to enter the first competition but really lacked in motivation. It would be bad to pass up on this one, but I think I haven't sung for 15 years (school choir when I was 12)... argh!

    Maybe I'll give in to my fears...

    EDIT: Already had some inpsiration, but I need to know if it HAS to be "Tempmas 2014" or if I can put a word inbetween Tempmas and 2014?

    Pfff, there have been AWESOME Tempmas contests ;) The huge scavenger hunt was the absolute best one, and I had SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much fun! I remember being one of the first to complete that one. (just a one or two before me IIRC).

    Oh yeah, I remember that I was the answer to one of the questions as well (or if that was another scavanger hunt, I don't remember).
