      Hi Lajwanti

      This competition is for a whole song and you will need to submit a performance of the song, you cannot only submit written lyrics I’m afraid.

    • Quinn says:

      Hi Abdu

      Unfortunately, you cannot use an existing song for your lyrics. Can you think of a friend you could team up with who could compose a song to go with your lyrics?

      In Service,
      Quinn

  6. I have started working on Lyrics, Melody and music….

  7. Yaswanth Ram says:

    Thank you for such a great opportunity. Is the background score really optional or shall it take part of the points given to a lyric?

    • Quinn says:

      Hi Yaswanth

      You do need to send us the performed song including the melody. You must also send the written lyrics but the optional part is sending us the written musical score.

      In Service,
      Quinn

  20. vennila says:

  21. vennila says:

    By the way,what do you mean by ‘radio edit’?

  22. Josh says:

    Hi..have just come to hear that vcon uae may be cancelled or postponed due to certain reasons..is this true? If yes, will this contest still be open? Have almost completed most of the song..

    • Nathan says:

      Hi Josh and Vennila

      Yes, you can read the bad news about V-Con over on http://www.the-v.net.

      The good news is that this competition is still running.

      A radio edit is a modification to make a song more suitable for airplay by typically making it shorter.

    thank you
