I sent out an email to all of the participants describing how to collect on the goods but have only heard from about three folks.
I BCC’d everybody and am thinking that the email may have been caught up in spam filters. If you have not heard from me (and you submitted to the contests) shoot me a note or comment below and I’ll get you caught up to speed.

Thanks to all who participated in the first ever BDM contests. To those who entered songs/stories, we applaud you for your talents and willingness to put it out there in front of others. To those who voted we also say thanks for making the contest a success.
We had just over 100 votes for the week and feel like the turnout was pretty good considering. We have already been contacted about doing another so there is probable opportunity to see it happen again in the near future.

You still have a chance to get your voice heard. Voting in our inaugural Best Cover/Story contests is still open. We’re counting on you to make sure we dish out the right prizes to the right contestants.
Over the coming weeks you might see a few changes around here. I’ve just finished reading a book that has given me some ideas for the site. Hopefully they will come to fruition and you will see the benefits. Add any suggestions you might have in the comments below and we’ll at least mull them over with our upcoming changes.
Make sure you grab our RSS feed to stay current on the latest from bdm. Not familiar with RSS? I wrote about it elsewhere a while back.
Enough time has been given to listen to, and vote for, Arman Srsa for our user submitted artists section. At the time of post, Arman has a 70% rating and just makes his way in the door. Congrats, Arman. Keep up the good work. We look forward to hearing your future sounds.

Time to make your voice heard. We had several great submissions for the contest and now it is time to start the voting.
Updated: To cast your vote, click on the links below to our polls. We will keep the voting open for 1 week and at the end of the week we will contact the first, second and third place winners for each category.
As promised, winners to receive free music in either digital format or CD. Their choice.
Vote: Best Cover
Vote: Best Story
Thanks to all who participate.

So we figured we’d better set a deadline for both of the contests or else we’ll never get to voting or sending out the goods!
If you haven’t done so, make sure you get your Best Story or Cover in by 11:00PM CST this Sunday 10/12/08. At that point we will open up the voting to the general public and decide some winners.
So far we have 2 stories and 4 covers submitted. Don’t miss your chance at JOAT, MOJO, or JOTC. So far our submissions for stories look to be guaranteed winners!
