Smule's Says Its Ocarina Contest 'Blows'


ocarina contest smuleTo celebrate the success of its hugely popular Ocarina musical app, Smule, its developers, has launched an online video contest.

Smule will award $1,000 to each of the best 10 video creators and T-shirts to the runners ups.

Here's how to enter

"Smulean," if you haven't read our interview with Ge Wang, Smule's co-founder, means "...something with audio and social interaction with the person you’re standing next to rather than virtual. [It's] technology that enables people to do cool things and to be expressive."

Tune in to weekly live broadcasts with The Mule on the Ustream.TV channel every Monday at 7 pm PST starting Dec. 15 for contest updates and to ask questions.

The contest ends at 11:59 pm Pacific Standard Time on January 10, 2009. Smule will announce the winners Jan. 12 during the final live broadcast.

A Smulean algorithm, using ratings, average number of stars and total views on YouTube, will decide the winners. As a back up, Smule will appoint a panel of judges to oversee the contest and make the final decision if needed.
