    IU's 1000th Day Ultimate CD Contest!

    [​IMG]

    To mark 1000 days since IU's debut, WeheartIU is launching its biggest ever contest!

    The winner of this contest will receive EVERY physical CD that IU has ever released or featured on (as long as it's still available in Korea). Plus if any new CDs are released between now and the closing date, we'll add those in too!

    The prize includes every item on the list below. That's a total of 15 CDs! If you think we've missed anything, let us know and as long as we can obtain it, we'll add it to the list.

    IU's own albums

    • Lost and Found
    • Growing Up
    • iu...im
    • REAL (Limited Edition)
    • REAL+
    OSTs

    • Strike Love OST (featuring IU's song "You Are Always Like That")
    • Queen Seon Duk OST (featuring IU's songs "To The Sea" and "Wind Flower")
    • Telecinema 7 Paradise OST (featuring IU's song "Danny Boy)
    • Road No.1 OST (featuring IU's song "Because I'm A Girl")
    • Dream High OST (featuring IU's song "Someday")
    • The Greatest Love OST (featuring IU's self-composed song "Hold My Hand")
    Other

    • MBC Music Travel Lalala (featuring IU's songs "All You Need Is Love" and "I Still Don't Know What Love Is")
    • G20 Let's Go
    • Road For Hope (featuring IU's duet with Yoo Seungho "Believe In Love")
    • Seungri Mini Album V.V.I.P (with track "I Know" featuring IU)

    How to win

    Since this is such a huge prize, we want you to work for it!

    Last month IU released the promo song for Expo 2012, "Stories Told By The Sea". As well as the Korean version, she also released an English version. For this contest, we want you to make a cover of that song. You can use either the English or Korean version, but we're assuming most people will be happier with English!

    You don't have to do just a straight singing cover. You could do your own instrumental version - piano, guitar, or any other instrument - or maybe an acapella singing version, or even a digital remix. Be creative! As long as the original song is clearly identifiable in whatever you produce, and it's your own work, it will qualify.

    You can enter as a group too if you wish - a choral version would be impressive! - but there's only one prize.

    The entries will be judged by WeheartIU staff and the winner will be the one that we think shows the most impressive combination of effort, creativity, enthusiasm and talent.

    English, Korean and instrumental versions of the original track can be downloaded here: http://weheartiu.com/forums/topic/2676-stories-told-by-the-sea-yeosu-2012-expo-logo-song/

    English and Korean lyrics are available here (English) http://weheartiu.com/forums/topic/2693-stories-told-by-the-sea-english-ver/ and here (Korean) http://weheartiu.com/forums/topic/2682-%eb%b0%94%eb%8b%a4%ea%b0%80-%ea%b8%b0%ec%96%b5%ed%95%98%eb%8a%94-%ec%96%98%ea%b8%b0-stories-told-by-the-sea-korean-ver/


    Entry procedure

    Here's how to enter the contest.

    1. You must RECORD A VIDEO of your cover (you don't have to show your face if you don't want to) and upload it to Youtube. The video MUST be set to public and include "WeheartIU.com 1000th day contest" and your WeheartIU username in the title. For example, I would title my video: "WeheartIU.com 1000th day contest - TheFly"
    2. Post the link to your video in this thread.
    3. You can make as many entries as you like, as long as each video is significantly different.

    The closing date is 12 July 2011, which gives you 4 whole weeks. We will choose the winner shortly after that date.

    Good luck!

    Sorry, the contest is now closed. Winners will be announced in the next few days.

    I believe that would be fine, since showing your face isn't a requirement anyways. Just make sure that everything else fits the procedure.

    So excited! I might just have to pluck up the courage and enter! By the way, didn't IU also do a single with Sung Si Kyung? And I'm know this might sound silly but...Nagging? Or are they both digital singles?

    wow, such an epic contest.

    i was long considering an IU cover, but i didn't think it would be in the context of a contest..

    i'm not good at covering songs at all (which is why i decided to write my own in the first place)

    i guess i'll also be joining, but i'll have to listen to the original first... :p
