2013 Grand Final Information

9th November 2013

Format of Pacific Song Competition Grand Final 2103

This year (our first) we have only 3 songs in the final, so the format will be simpler than in future years.  The following is the format, which will be streamed to the web as per the schedule at the bottom of the page.

Voting:
Public:
You will be given 24 hours after the Grand Final show to vote for your favourite song.  You can do this in one of three ways:

  1. by “liking” your favorite on Facebook.  Just before the final, we will relink and share the three songs on our facebook page.  We will then count the number of “likes” after the 24 hours period expires.
  2. by liking your favourite  on YouTube.  We will count the number of existing likes on the YouTube page and will use any extra likes as votes.
  3. By voting on the PRSC website – http://pacific.songcompetition.net/voting-page – where you can put in your name, email address (optional) and vote for one of the songs.

All of these votes will be tallied and the song with the most votes will get 10 points, the second 8 points and the third 7 points.

Juries:
Each jury will vote for the songs, giving the first 10 points, the second 8 points and the third 7 points.  During the voting results show, we will add the points for each song, divide by three and come up with a 1, 2, 3 result.

Final Voting:

The public and jury vote will then be averaged, to give us a final winner.  It is possible, although unlikely, that we will have a tied vote for first, in that case, they will be declared joint winners and will share any prize-money or prizes.

Schedule:

2013 Finals Show – ustream.tv/channel/pacific-rim-song-competition-2013-final
– 16th November 18:00 AEDT (UTC +11)

Judging and Winners announcement – ustream.tv/channel/pacific-rim-song-competition-2013-final
– 17th November 18:30 AEDT (UTC +11)

Both programs will be in the form of a pre-shot and edited video segment, which will be available on UStream.tv and YouTube after the finals.
