Información para el 2013 Gran Final

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.

¿Cuál es el procedimiento de las finales de?

Hi everybody. We now have a clear idea of how the final series is going to work.

While this year is not going to have a large number of entries, we’ll still be proceeding on our preferred procedure, probably without any preliminary finals, but incorporating all the systems we’ll be using in the future.

We’re in discussions with YouTube (Google) about how the voting will work and the public vote will be done via YouTube or Google directly and will be visible to everyone on the voting page – we’re not sure exactly how this will be done yet, but will advise as soon as we have it detailed. The public vote – which counts 50% towards the final vote – is by country and we’ll know where your vote is coming from, so your vote will count towards a Russian Vote or a China vote or a Colombian vote for a particular artist or song.

It looks like we’re only going to have a few songs to choose between for this first competition, but we have a probably music sponsor, so we’re hoping for some exciting announcements soon.

Whether or not we have an international competition or purely an Australian one, this is what’s going to happen…

As you may know, our competition is real, but delivered by the web. We have pre-recorded video entries and we will be pre-recording the competitors and their support teams to fit into our finals evening template.

For the finals, we have a stadium, the Pacific Song Competition Stadium, it’ll have 30 or 40 thousand (virtual) spectators and a (virtual) room for each entries support teams. You’ll have seen preliminary staging and lighting setup drawings on our Facebook page and we’ll share more pictures as the design progresses.

We have a gorgeous and very clever Master of Ceremonies, Ms Laura Tchilinguirian, who will be guiding us through the evening and the night will be live on a web-stream – URL to be announced – from 1900 on 15th November 2013, Sydney Australia AEDT time (UTC +11). We imagine the show will take between an hour and 3 hours, depending on the number of entries.

The procedure will be as follows: we’ll have the show with all the entries – you’ll see them being introduced by Laura, each act will have their time on stage, with comments by their support teams and the final wrap-up by our host. If possible, your commentary will be in your country’s language, but this will be dependant on us having enough translators or commentators to do this. The default language will be English.

Once the show has finished, we will have our juries deliver their verdicts. If you want to know how the voting works – go here – and then it’s the public’s turn. Over the next 24 hours you have your chance to Vote, via YouTube or Google. Your vote is by country and will count towards how your Country counts the songs entered. Your county’s Public vote will be counted and the results will be averaged with the official Jury’s vote to determine how your Country voted for the songs.

After 24hours, Ms Laura will come back onto the web stream to announce the winners and their prizes. The results and the final voting numbers will also be available on the Pacific Song Competition website, our Facebook and YouTube pages. We’ll also enable you to get an email announcement, if you so desire.

And that’ll be it for 2013. We hope you have a lot of fun voting for your favorite in the region and look forward to a robust competition in years to come.
