The wonderful thing about today’s accessibility to online technology is that it has opened an endless world of possibilities. Not only has it enabled businesses to reach far beyond its own brick and mortar storefronts, but also it has brought a world of artists together from around the globe. Charities have also gotten in on the advantages of online business competitions and have utilized both business and the arts to further its causes.
Currently, famed country singer Clint Black and his management company, The Collective, are working with the Chideo Charity Network to raise money for Rettsyndrome.org. Rett Syndrome is a unique postnatal neurological disorder that is first recognized in infancy and seen almost always in girls, but rarely seen in boys. Rett Syndrome causes problems in brain function that are responsible for cognitive, sensory, emotional, motor and autonomic function. These can include learning, speech, sensory sensations, mood, movement, breathing, cardiac function, and even chewing, swallowing, and digestion.
Black and his management have launched an online contest for musicians to win a chance to record at his studio in Nashville, Tennessee. Musicians have been asked to perform one song per submission that exceeds no more than five minutes. The artists will be judged on everything from stage presence to song structure. Submissions are open through June 2, 2015 and the grand prizewinner and three runners up will be announced on July 30, 2015. The three finalists that don’t win the recording session will be given a guitar, autographed by Black himself.
There is a $20 donation fee required to enter the contest and all proceeds will go to Rettsyndrome.com. Running a business contest through Skild competition software is a great way to manage any sort of charity event that requires judging. Skild allows event coordinators to set specific parameters for the judges to base their decisions on, giving them a clear and easy way to pick the best option.
