Kindly read the rules carefully to have a better understanding

Introduction & Rules

General Information
RC: Ringtone Challenge- is a weekly competition where participants create unique ringtones for various handheld devices such phones, tablets etc.

Every week, a topic will be given. If a member is participating, he/she needs to create a remix as per the topic of that week.
The duration of that specific topic is one week.

RC Ringtone Specifications

• The ringtone cannot be a simple one part crop of a 30 second song nor can it be same as the original song. It needs to be remixed / altered somehow.
• Ringtone title must follow the below format:
"Your chosen title" - RC Week "XXX" (X= RC Competition Week Number)
• Only One ringtone per member is allowed.
• Your entry must always be a new remix, it shouldn't be released on any other site. Do not use old remixes from your gallery for the competition.
