The company is holding a contest to see who can submit the best rendition of the iconic Final Fantasy Main Theme (no, not the harp-rambling Prelude, but the song highlighted here). Entrants can sing, hum, play, or otherwise transmit the song via any sounds of their choosing, so even if your singing voice sounds like a chocobo caught in a car wash, you still might have a chance.
Video submissions can not be more than 1:30 in length and must show a sign or piece of paper with a Final Fantasy title written on it. After the 24th August deadline, Final Fantasy grand maestro Nobuo Uematsu himself will judge the performances on the criteria of talent and creativity.
The grand prize winner will have a ton of Final Fantasy aural love poured upon him or her in the form of the following prize pack:
- A round trip for two to catch a Distant Worlds: Final Fantasy concert
- A beautiful, limited edition Curtain Call-themed 3DS LL (will only play Japanese games)
- The official soundtracks to all numerical Final Fantasy games
- A copy of the Final Fantasy Theatrhythm: Curtain Call Collector's Edition signed by Uematsu
- A Final Fantasy Static Arts Mini figure
Additional prizes will be handed out and some submissions that follow certain guidelines will also be featured in upcoming trailers for the game. All the details can be found on the official contest site and in the video below.
You will also want to take a close look at the official rules, as your country may require you to enter through a certain URL.
