    Good luck to those of you who are US residents. Go get that prize! (Don't forget to copyright your stuff properly first; it does sound a bit phony to me, I have to admit).

    If you read the contract Disney gets to keep and use your music, even if you don't win. I never said it was a great deal!

    Ever since I got registered in a couple of web communities I keep receiving all kinds of crazy promotion offerings on an hourly basis. Just before checking this thread again I received an offer of being heard by a gazillion people worldwide (just because it's me - the one and only- of course) with all the consequences like being signed by the fanciest labels etc. The moment I started feeling myself more popular than Michael Jackson had ever been, I shifted my eyes to the bottom of the letter and saw a paragraph saying this out of this world offer would cost me only $10.

    Now where's my fool's hat?

    Found this as I read the rules: No way am I doing this!

    There was a contest on the Discovery Channel a while back. They wanted a 3D animated snake to strike at the camera lens. They provided an HD background plate that you could download. You would animate the snake in3D, composite in the scene and send it back to them. The winner received... $400. They did get the work on the Discovery channel but $400 for that type of work is close to slave labor. Still I'm sure someone did it.

    It's interesting that this contest for Regis and Kelley has the stipulation shown above. So that means if they get 100,000 entries, and say 50 of them are top notch, they can use all 50. The winner of course gets the 100k but the 49 other "losers" may hear there music as the next huge theme for a new Disney film but will not receive a dime for it. Am I reading this right?

    That is what I read into this. They get to expand their sound library for a paltry $100,000 complete with new theme music and maybe thousands of other pieces of music that they can use anytime, anywhere, and even, if I understand this correctly, sell to a third party. Gotta love the mouse

    Peace

    Just give you crappiest tunes to make the connect, then drop 'em like a hot potatoe.
    I haven't had the need for a paid mouthpiece or agent for years, but shake hands and smile, tell them you think they're GGRR88888TTTT...and the whole time one eye is searching for the path ahead.
    Of course this do it all at home from the computer w/o ever having to learn Japanes to show respect, or bow, or shake a hand.
    I honestly think that people just need to get out more.
