We are holding a series of monthly online banjo contests to encourage increased musicianship and participation in the worldwide banjo community.
It's that time of year again... when we pull out the Christmas tune songbook and try to learn a few songs all over again! Have some fun with it this year by entering our contest. These can be instrumentals or include vocals, solo or with a group... you just have to be playing the banjo. Bonus points for costumes, Christmas decorations, etc.
Entry Deadline: 11/30/2017
Voting Window: 12/1/2017-12/15/2017
This challenge is for banjo beginners only! Enter a video of yourself playing any banjo instrumental in any style. The votes of BHO members will determine who the top entry from the field of "banjo rookies!"
Additional rules for this challenge (in addition to the standard contest rules): First, only players who began playing banjo on or after January 1, 2016 may submit a video. Second, in your video you must state your name and when you began playing banjo.
All you need is a Banjo Hangout account and a video of yourself posted on YouTube. Submit that video to the Banjo Hangout video library before the entry deadline and you're a part of the Challenge.
Once you're signed into your Banjo Hangout account, click the link on the right-hand red bar to add a video. Be sure to select which Challenge you are submitting the video for when you save it. That's it!
Some Challenges may include specific rules which override those above.
These rules were last updated 6/20/17.
Currently no prizes are being awarded to winners. If you are interested in sponsoring a contest by donating a prize please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Winners will, of course, also live on in infamy here on the Banjo Hangout! We're still deciding how it will work, but winners will probably get some sort of "award" pinned to their profile so others can know they placed in a challenge and watch their winning video.
