Charter and Official Rulebook

 

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ3IT7eEkm3jAFx2fGFNBk

 

 

SECTION 1 - SONG CHOICE AND ELIGIBILITY:

 

1. (a) All songs must be released on or before December 31st, 2014, in keeping with TISC Open rules whereby songs released in the last 5 years are ineligible to compete.

 

1. (b) All songs must be ORIGINAL to the nation for which they are competing. In other words, if a song is a copy or cover of an original song by an artist from another nation, then it is ONLY permitted to participate for the nation of the artist who produced the original version. If the artist of the cover version is from the same nation as the original artist, then the cover version must fulfill rule 1(a) in order to be eligible to participate.

 

1. (c) Songs that competed at Eurovision shall be excluded from competing at TISC. However, songs which competed in a national final but were not put forward to represent their nation at Eurovision may be selected to compete at TISC.

 

 

SECTION 2 - ARTIST CHOICE AND ELIGIBILITY:

 

2. (a) Artists chosen to represent a nation must have been born in or be of the same nationality as the nation for which they are participating OR they must have more or equal association with that nation.

 

2. (b) In the case of bands, at least 50% of the band must be born in or be of the same nationality as the nation for which they are participating OR they should have more or equal association with that nation.

 

2. (c) For the purposes of the Totallympics International Song Contest, the same concept of nationality as that used by the IOC (International Olympic Committee) will be adopted. So, for example, artists from Scotland must represent Great Britain, artists from Faroe Islands must represent Denmark, etc.

 

 

SECTION 3 - NATIONAL JURY VOTING:

 

3. (a) National juries may consist of a single jury member OR a multi-member jury made up of two or more users from that nation.

 

3. (b) National juries must send their votes in SECRET (via private message) to the host organising member(s) of the song contest as requested during the designated voting window.

 

3. (c) Each jury member in a multi-member jury shall send their individual preferences in SECRET (via private message) to the host organising member(s). The votes from each of the members of the multi-member jury will be combined to form a single set of votes which will represent the overall voting preference of that national jury. In this way, the votes from each of the participating national juries, whether single or multi-member juries, will hold equal value or weight.

 

3. (d) National juries will use the following voting format:

  • (i) Jury members will award points to their 12 favourite songs in ascending manner from points 1 through 12 (inclusive) with the first preference receiving a maximum score of 12 points, second preference receiving 11 points, third preference receiving 10 points, and so forth until the song of 12th preference which will receive a single point. See below scoring table for reference:

 

 

 

1st Preference 12 pts
 2nd Preference 11 pts
 3rd Preference 10 pts
 4th Preference 9 pts
 5th Preference 8 pts
 6th Preference 7 pts
 7th Preference 6 pts
 8th Preference 5 pts
 9th Preference 4 pts
 10th Preference 3 pts
 11th Preference 2 pts
 12th Preference 1 pt

 

 

  • (ii) In single member juries, these scores will subsequently represent the National Jury Vote of that nation. However, in multi-member juries, the votes of all the jury members from that nation will be combined to form a single set of points. The song which has received the most number of points from that national jury will be deemed to be the overall first preference choice of that jury and will receive the maximum score of 12 points; the song which has received the second highest number of points from that national jury will be deemed to be the overall second preference choice of that jury and will receive a score of 11 points, and so forth until the song which has received the 12th highest number of points which will receive a single point from that national jury.

 

3. (d) National juries must submit their votes by the official voting deadline as designated by the host organiser(s). National juries who fail to submit their votes within the required time frame will be disqualified from the contest.

 

3. (e) Any Nation which fails to participate in the voting process will be automatically disqualified from the contest.

 

3. (f) A random draw will take place in advance of the Grand Final to determine the order in which the National Juries will reveal their votes. This draw must be shown to be transparent and available to competing members should they wish to follow the result.

The result of this draw must always be adhered to in order to preserve the random nature in which the voting will progress during the Grand Final. A National Jury may only request a "swap" in their designated voting position if, after the random draw, they have been assigned a voting slot outside of "reasonable hours". For the purpose of this contest, reasonable hours will be determined as anytime between 08:30-23:00 local time of that national jury. During the "swap" process, the host organiser will first look to make swaps between National Juries who are eligible for swaps after the random draw.

 

 

SECTION 4 - NATIONAL JURY TIE-BREAK PROCEDURES:

 

4. (a) In the event of a tie in the combined votes of multi-member juries, the following set of rules outlines how the tie-break will be resolved:

  • (i) The song which has received points from the greatest number of jury members will be deemed the winner of the tie. For example, take the following scenario.... Songs A, B, and C each received a combined score of 10 points after the results of each national jury member were combined and calculated. Song A received a single score of 10 points from one jury member, Song B received scores of 7 points and 3 points from two separate jury members and Song C received scores of 5 points, 3 points and 2 points from 3 separate jury members. All three songs received a total of 10 points, however, Song C is deemed to be the winner of the tie because a greater number of jury members voted for that song (3 members in this case).
  • (ii) If the songs remain deadlocked after 4 (a) (i), the song which received the highest value score from an individual jury member will be deemed the winner of the tie. For example, take the following scenario.... Song A and Song B each received a combined score of 14 points after the results of each national jury member were combined and calculated. Song A received scores of 8+6 points while Song B received scores of 7+7 points. Song A will be deemed the winner of that tie since that song received a score of higher value (8 points) from one of the national jury members.
  • (iii) If the songs remain deadlocked after 4 (a) (i) and (ii), jury members from that national jury who did not award any votes to any of the songs involved in the tie-break will be asked to break the tie. This tie-break rule can only ever be used to break ties in juries of 3 members or more and ONLY if there is a jury member who did not vote for any of the songs involved in the tie-break.
  • (iv) After the procedures 4 (a) (i), (ii) and (iii) have been carried out, all outstanding ties within the votes of a national jury shall be resolved by carrying out a single random draw. The nature of this random draw shall be as follows:
  • The names of each national jury member will be entered into a draw. Each name will be drawn. The first jury member drawn will be awarded the right to break the unresolved tie of highest value. The second jury member drawn will be awarded the right to break the unresolved tie of the second highest value. For example, take the following scenario.... there are two members of National Jury X. After the votes of User A and User B are combined and calculated the following situation arises:

 

      COUNTRY (Total points) -> Combined value

  • Country A (24 points) -> 12 points
  • Country B (21 points) -> 11 or 10 points
  • Country C (21 points) -> 11 or 10 points
  • Country D (18 points) -> 9 points
  • Country E (16 points) -> 8 points
  • Country F (13 points) -> 7 or 6 points
  • Country G (13 points) -> 7 or 6 points
  • Country H (10 points) -> 5 points
  • Country I (7 points) -> 4 or 3 points
  • County J (7 points) -> 4 or 3 points
  • Country K (4 points) -> 2 points
  • Country L (1 point) -> 1 or 0 points
  • County M (1 point) -> 1 or 0 points

 

  • Those highlighted in red text are those ties which could not be resolved by 4 (a) (i), (ii) or (iii). As a result of the random draw, User A was drawn first, meaning that user will be given the right to break the unresolved tie of the highest value (the tie between Country B and C for 11 or 10 points). User B was drawn second meaning that user will be given the right to break the unresolved tie of the second highest value (the tie between Country F and G for 7 or 6 points). The order will then be reversed so that User B will be given the right to break the unresolved tie of the third highest value (the tie between Country I and J for 4 or 3 points). User A will finally be given the right to break the unresolved tie of the fourth highest value (the tie between Country L and M for 1 or 0 points).
  • This procedure to break the unresolved ties will be used for national juries of any number with the first user drawn being given the right to break the unresolved tie of the highest value, the second user drawn being given the right to break the unresolved tie of the second highest value, third user the third highest tie, etc. reversing the order if need be when the order has completed one cycle.
  • However, it should be noted that unresolved tie-breaks which require random draws will occur mostly in two-member juries since national juries with 3 or more members will likely resolve all ties through 4 (a) (i), (ii) or (iii).

 

 

SECTION 5 - OVERALL SCOREBOARD TIE-BREAK PROCEDURES:

 

5. (a) In the event of a tie in the overall scoreboard between two or more nations, the following set of rules outlines how the tie-break will be resolved:

  • (i) The nation which has received points from the greatest number of National Juries will be deemed the winner of the tie.
  • (ii) If there is still a tie after 5 (a) (i), the nation which has received the greatest number of 12 points will be deemed the winner of the tie.
  • (iii) If there is still a tie after 5 (a) (i), (ii), the nation which has received the greatest number of 11 points will be deemed the winner of the tie. If the tie remains deadlocked, the process will continue by counting the number of 10 points each nation received, 9 points, 8 points, and so on until the tie-break can be resolved.

5. (b) If there is still a tie in the overall scoreboard between two or more nations after 5 (a) (i), (ii) and (iii) have been implemented, those nations shall be deemed to have tied for position in the overall scoreboard.

 

 

SECTION 6 - TEAM CHALLENGE FORMAT AND RULES:

 

6. (a) Each edition of the Totallympics International Song Contest will feature a Team Challenge competition. The main purpose of this team element is to further enhance the community spirit that is an integral feature of TISC events and to provide another means of encouraging users to interact with one another.

 

(b) The TISC Team Challenge event may vary in format from one contest to the next. The nature of the format will be dependent on the number of participating nations.

 

(c) Nations will be assigned to their team by random draw.

 

(d) The ideal format is that there will be a minimum of 8 teams, each made up of 4 nations. However, if that is not possible, the teams will be formed from one of the following formats (listed in order of preference):

  • (i) teams of 3 nations
  • (ii) teams of 5 nations
  • (iii) if it's not possible for each team to have the same number of nations, a special provision will be introduced (for example: power plays).

 

(e) It is recommended that the teams shall be named after various cities/regions of the host country and combined with a nickname. For example, a contest in Brazil might feature teams called the Brasilia Capitals and Manaus Amazons.

 

 

SECTION 7 - ELIGIBILITY, CONDUCT AND RESPONSIBILITY OF PARTICIPANTS:

 

7. (a) Any first time participant must have been registered on the forum at least 2 months before they take part in the contest. The date used to calculate the 2 months rule will be 2 months prior to the National Selection deadline. A first time participant may be allowed special dispensation to participate in TISC, even if they do not fulfill the 2-month rule criteria. However, in such circumstances, that user must have shown a high level of activity in the forum in terms of posts and presence. This special dispensation will be awarded on the agreement of Totallympics admin, namely Sindo, who will conduct all necessary verification checks and will be given final approval by the TISC management team, namely OlympicIRL and the host of that TISC edition.

These rules are not designed to exclude, only to ensure TISC retains a distinct character, built upon a unique community atmosphere created by users of the forum.

 

7. (b) Participating users shall be respectful of the song choice of all nations once they fulfill all of the necessary eligibility requirements.

 

7. (c) Participating users must not reveal or give any indication as to their preferences or voting choices at any stage before the official announcement of the votes during the Grand Final.

 

7. (d) Participating users must not discuss private voting procedures with other members so as to ensure fairness is always in play and to ensure any suspense during the Grand Final is kept intact.

 

7. (e) Participating users must be respectful when posting and discussing with other members on the Totallympics International Song Contest Thread.

 

7. (f) If foul play is detected with respect to 7 (a), (b), (c), (d) or (e) at any stage before, during or after the contest, the TISC organising committee reserves the right to place the participation or result of that nation under review.

 

 

SECTION 8 - HOSTING DUTIES, RESPONSIBILITIES AND ORGANISATIONAL TIMEFRAME:

 

8. (a) The host organisation should adhere to the follow basic schedule upon organising the contest:

 

  • There shall be 2 weeks allocated for registration and national selection until the deadline to submit an entry.
  • There shall be 2 weeks allocated for voting (of which a maximum of 3 days will be allocated to the host jury to submit their votes to a designated neutral third party).
  • There shall be a maximum of 2 weeks allocated after the voting window closes to allow the hosts time to organise the Grand Final.
  • This 6 week time-frame was agreed upon during a public vote but in special circumstances, exceptions will be considered.

 

8. (c) The host organiser(s) must submit their votes in advance of receiving votes from other National Juries by private message. The votes of the host(s) should be sent by private message to a neutral third party after the national selection window has passed and before the national jury voting phase begins.

 

8. (d) The host organiser(s) must abide by the same rules that govern the participation of users in the Totallympics International Song Contest as outlined in Section 6.

 

 

SECTION 9 - FUTURE HOSTING RIGHTS:

 

9. (a) Upon completion of the relevant song contest, the winning nation will automatically be awarded the rights to host the subsequent Totallympics International Song Contest 1 year later.

 

9. (b) If the winning nation wishes to decline the hosting duties, the runner-up of that edition will then be awarded the opportunity to accept or decline the hosting rights. If the runner-up also declines the hosting duties, the 3rd placed nation of that edition will have the opportunity to accept or decline the hosting rights.

 

9. (c) In the event that the hosting rights are declined by the top 3 ranked nations at the previous edition of the relevant TISC, an open bid process will be conducted in order to award the hosting rights. This process will be open to all candidates, first-time hosts as well as previous hosts.

A random draw will take place with each candidate being awarded a number of tickets in the draw. The more tickets a candidate has entered, the better their chance of being selected as host. Here is the process for how the tickets will be distributed:

 

Each candidate automatically awarded 1 ticket each in the draw. However, additional tickets awarded as follows

- did not host in the previous 5 editions (+1 additional ticket)

- did not host in the previous 10 editions (+1 additional ticket)

- did not host previously (+2 additional tickets)

- took part in the previous bidding process (+1 additional ticket). For first-time hosts, they will add an additional ticket for each edition they are unsuccessful for in bidding, thus increasing their chance slightly with each unsuccessful bid. This increase will only be available for first-time hosts. Additionally, if a first-time host missed 2 consecutive bidding campaigns, then their tickets no longer carry forward and they lose those additional tickets.

September 20, 2019.- After many days of waiting with an understandable impatient from many users, the organizing committee can now finally welcome all Totallympians to this year's Open Totallympics International Song Contest. The organizing committee expects to present Denmark from its many sides this year. This year's participants will get an unique opportunity to experience Denmark as the OC has decided to present the history, culture and attractions of some Denmark's many islands. There are already many applicants which dream of the opportunity to present their island in TISC Open. The OC will announce the selected islands later in this year's edition. 

 

Another thing the participants have probably looked forward to is the announcement of the year's host city and venue where the Grand Final will be held. The OC can now reveal which city will get this honour. After a thorough selection process, with national media attention and many interested applicants, an unanimous organizing committee has awarded the rights to host this year's TISC Open to Odense. It will be the first time in TISC's history that Odense will have the honour to host a TISC Grand Final. The city council have already expressed their excitement to welcome the Totallympics community to their city. The participants will get more information about this year's host city when we come closer to the Grand Final. 

 

Shortly after Odense was announced as this year's host, they announced the location of the Grand Final. It will be Arena Fyn which will set the stage for an amazing final.  Arena Fyn opened its doors for the first time on October 6, 2007. The opening was celebrated with an exciting and diverse opening show, which offered a festive gathering of Funen artists and culture in a beautiful and entertaining show. Since its opening, many thousands of guests from all over the country and the world have enjoyed the many different experiences that the arena can offer. Of the great concert experiences, the arena was able to welcome Danish bands such as Nephew and Volbeat, but also international stars from Simply Red to Santana.

With its 3000 m2, only the imagination sets the boundaries of what the arena can accommodate. The arena has room for 5,000 standing guests, which make it possible to create a big party in the arena.

As the last announcement, and with the official schedule released, the organizing committee can declare the registration period for officially open for national juries and song entries. It will run for the next 14 days, so remember to register as juror for your nation and choose a song for your nation before the deadline, October 4, 18:00 (CEST).

I guess I am eligible for this, so I will represent :HUN (with maybe some other Hungarian users if they also wish to participate). 

 

I do have to look it up if we have already sent something previously, I don't want to send the same song again.
