Almost 2 years ago, Act IV and collaborated with other members of the SP fan community on the successful SP: Early Years Cover Song Contest, where fans were asked to submit covers of their favorite Gish/Siamese Dream era tracks to win some cool Smashing Pumpkins-related prizes. Now, to celebrate the Pumpkins’ 25th anniversary, as well as the recent reissues of the 10 times Platinum selling Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and it’s companion box set, The Aeroplane Flies High, Act IV is collaborating and others in the community to bring the fans another special contest.

The SMASHING PUMPKINS INFINITE SADNESS CONTEST will be along similar lines to previous cover song contests. But this time around, fans are asked to submit covers of their favorite Pumpkins originals spanning the MCIS/TAFH era (Late 1994-1997), from the earliest MCIS demos to TAFH b-sides. In addition to winning some great Pumpkins-related merch, the winners of the contest will earn a spot on Ghost Children And The Infinite Sadness, a digital EP that will be sold under a ‘pay what you can’ model, with any proceeds to be donated to Make-A-Wish. 6 spots are up for grabs, with the ‘Best Cover Song’ being awarded by selection committee, and the ‘Fan Favorite Cover’ being selected by you, the fans! We are also pleased to announce that BILLY CORGAN will once again be the special guest judge for the ‘Best New Interpretation’ category! The remaining spots will be filled by the first runner-ups in each category.

The winners of the ‘Best Cover Song’, ‘Fan Favorite Cover’, and ‘Best New Interpretaion’ selections will receive:

1) SP-Related Merch To Be Announced
2) A spot on the Ghost Children And The Infinite Sadness digital EP
3) A copy of the Ghost Children 2/Friends and Enemies charity CD, as well as both the Ghost Children/Machines of God + Ghost Children And The Infinite Sadness digital EPs

For the contest, organizers have reached out to all corners of The Smashing Pumpkins Fan Community and beyond for help. In addition to our previously announced partners, the selection committee will include artists and staff from Act IV/Ghost Children past and present, including Ghost Children creator, Neil Main, and representatives from Ask the DustForget, ForgetNameless Entity MediaKill Hannah and JBTV among others.

All contest entrants are invited to reach out to our sponsors/supporters where applicable to explore the possibilities of being interviewed or played on air like Nameless Entity Media. We also welcome other members of the Pumpkins community and beyond to cover the contest and its contestants…just let us know what you need!

Depending on the success of the contest, organizers will consider the possibility of future contests and digital releases. So keep CD quality versions of your covers available, just in case! Please note that covers of songs the Pumpkins covered themselves will not be accepted. Before uploading your cover, please carefully review the Contest Rules.

Submissions will be accepted starting on October 1, 2013 and accepted until November 15, 2013.

After the submission deadline passes, voting will commence on November 18, 2013 and end on December 7, 2013. The winners are tentatively set to be announced on or before December 13, 2013.

In addition to the regular contest, Act IV will be accepting submissions for artwork for the Ghost Children And The Infinite Sadness digital EP. Please contact Act IV for more details and specs if you’re interested. But the winning artwork entry will receive digital copies of both the EP they are designing artwork for and the Ghost Children/Machines of God EP.
