As a compromise for those who want the main contest to start, and the ECBU wanting to get the new rules and organising committee into place... The ECBU announces the creation of the Junior EscChat Song Contest (JECSC)!!! In cooperation with the Lusitânian broadcaster Televisão Lusitânia 1 (TVL1), we are proud to present the JECSC! As of right now, this is a one-time event while we await the resuming of ECSC. However, if there is enough interest, it may become a more regular contest. Here are the rules: #1: No JESC, ESC or NF songs. #2: Singer must be age 15 or under; OR a song sung by an adult that is geared specifically to the under 15 age group. #3: Disney songs ARE allowed...however, since Disney is known the world over, any Disney songs submitted MUST be in a language OTHER than ENGLISH. This "Disney" rule applies to any Don Bluth (i.e. "All Dogs Go To Heaven, "An American Tail", "Anastasia"), Pixar or other major studio animation movies. #4: You MUST be a member of EscChat.com to enter. While there is no language rule in place, it would be nice to send childrens songs in languages other than English (for more variety). If you are having trouble finding a song, try theme music to childrens television shows in your home country. The 1st ever JECSC will be held at Estadio Crianças (Children's Stadium) in Alvalade, the second-largest city in Lusitânia. Here is a photo inside the stadium... All countries interested in taking part in this wondrous event, simply send the name of your song, artist's name, and youtube link to the TVL studios (PM or e-mail me). The contest will hopefully start in two to three days time. Logo of the JECSC (work in progress)... Good luck to all the Participants!!!
