#MAIKAOriginalSongContest

We are organizing a contest for Original Songs using VOCALOID3 MAIKA. For participating you should create an original song with MAIKA and upload it to Youtube before 19th of May 2014.

Many people will think, how can I create a song with MAIKA if I don’t own MAIKA? ok you can download a FREE Vocaloid3 MAIKA TRIAL from http://www.voctro-vocaloid.com/maika that will allow you to use MAIKA with no limits for 14 consecutive days. You must be creative to create the vocal part of the song in only 14 days but at least you all have the chance to participate and even win if you are lucky.

The highest the rating number the most popular the video is, so the videos with the highest resulting rating numbers will win.
