I might have to make my You Tube debut for it ... I want a Bushman uke so badly. Does anyone know if they ship to England (because I'll have to buy one because I won't win)

They do indeed ship to England. If you enter the comp and win they'll pay for shipping for the prize to anywhere in the world.

Definitely entering this one. Hell, I might even have enough time to buy new snowboard and bindings before I buy a mic and practice.

I've already got the first song I'm going to do in mind, and I can already decently sing it! haha.

Are we all posting our entries here as well? I'd like to see what everybody else does.

I have two or three ideas which would fit this. I'm in! Maybe with all of them! I can foresee problems giving a worthy performance on this damn Mahalo if I don't get the intonation fixed.....

Having looked through the Bushman store, with $1000, you could have anything you wanted! A cedar topped tenor, a hard case, perhaps some sort of soprano, a selection of harmonicas....

What's a pity is, I'd want to get my tenor retrofitted with a Headway pickup, but that's not an option on there. I'm really going to try to win this.

I'm going to do my songs with a flying-V Mahalo uke. That'll show them I mean business!!!!

Does anyone know how many entries they received last year?

Unless I really make progress with the intonation, I may have to go out and spend for something better. Not too much better, mind!

Man what a lineup on that contest! Fantastic stuff - And I Really loved Seeso's version of "Use me up" with both Seesos in it.
I'm looking forward to seeing this years entries. Tough acts to follow for sure.
