FAQ

What is Fedivision?

Fedivision is an annual contest of mucisians in the Fediverse. The Fediverse is a network of servers that are used to communicate with each other, share messages, music and much more.

Fedivision is of course inspired by the Eurovision Song Contest, short ESC.

How can I enter my song?

Please use this form.

Why do I have to specify a download link to the song’s mp3 or ogg file?

We had some entries last years that may or may not have been entered just to create traffic towards previously existing media on SoundCloud, YouTube, etc. We want to give more visibility to musicians of the Fediverse, not create traffic for big media websites. So we will host the entries this year from here – and hopefully in a dedicated stream in the Fediverse in the future.

What does the winner get?

Eternal glory, a new fursona of their choice and a bag of glitter!

No, seriously. There’s nothing to “win” here beyond the contest itself. You’ll get a place in our Hall of Fame, and you can boast a bit. I guess.

How does voting work?

The amazing zatnosk has developed the glorious Fedivision Bot that can handle the voting. Go ahead and follow it!

When does the main event start?

Fedivision 2024 will return in June 2024.

Why are some servers excluded?

Servers blocked by mastodon.art are known to violate the minimum consensus of the Fediverse. We want to keep the contest safe and friendly. Accounts from blocked servers are therefore excluded from participating and voting.

Are entries made with the help of AI allowed?

OMG, no, stop it!
