So I decided on writing on my experience about a remix contest that I entered on Tracks And Fields. As a fan of The Get Up Kids, I was thrilled of the fact to have the opportunity to remix their latest single Keith Case. However, the experience on working this remix was a failure. Not on my part but on Tracks And Fields.Why? Well, with online collaboration and remix contests popping up all over the place, we are given opportunities we couldn’t have before. In my opinion, Indaba has lead the way for bringing opportunities for those who want to collaborate and those who want to compete.

Tracks And Fields is an example of how not to run things. After I entered the Keith Case Remix competition, I’ve been eagerly waiting to see who won. The contest ended on June 10th. Now the funny thing is only TEN entries were submitted. So Tracks And Fields and The Get Up Kids need only to pick 1 out of 10. Really, not that hard. But, in my opinion there isn’t a winner. I believe they simply scrapped the whole thing together.

After repeated attempts to contact Tracks And Fields about the status of the competition I was met with no reply. Try going to their “forums” and you’ll find its a ghost town. Not to mention the forum and site is organized poorly like a flashback to 1995. Overall, the site is a mess and trying to find someone to collaborate with will be hard. Most of the user base just signed up once and never looked back to log in again. Probably, first time users who just made an account to be in a contest.

My bottom line is this. Even if one, two, or ten entered a contest. The least you could do is notify that the contest has ended and their is no winner. There are ten contestants out their who worked hard on something and are awaiting results.

Here’s a couple of remix contests that are going on.
