Podcast competition part 1: Multiple entries

2006-11-24 14:36
Considering that everyone who entered had to do a hell of a lot more than simply fill in a form and give us their cell number, we got quite a few submissions. Some of them are real contenders, some of them puzzle us, and some of them are just plain weird. Or we think so... but what do we know? Not as much as you. You're the ones who're going to be listening to the podcasts. So we thought you should help us decide which one to use.

The entries so far: here they are. Have a listen!
Please note: these files are not the full quality files. We have brought the quality down to something streamable - about 64kpbs. You'll need broadband internet to listen to them. 24com by Don Laka

We had quite a few entries that were a lot stranger than anything you've just heard, like the emails suggesting we use a Robbie Williams song (we said "record", not steal) or others just giving people's details. Sorry, bad luck guys.

Tell us which one you like / hate the most. Put the name of the jingle in the "title" field, and have your say.

And if you haven't entered, we'd like to hear from you. Email your MP3 to Podcasts@24.com with your contact details and a title for the MP3. Please take note of our competition rules before entering. If your MP3 is not listed on this page, that means we haven't recieved it for some reason. Please email us and we'll make a plan. Entries close end November 30th.

Some websites pay for it. Some websites go the DIY route. Some resort to simple bribery, and that's what we decided on. Kalahari.net (the best place to buy your Christmas CDs, DVDs, and now also bling) put up the money for three prizes (two generous R1000 vouchers and a first prize of a Video iPod) and we opened for entries.
