    Hey Chris,

    Votes do not impact the decision of the judges for any category other than the “Popular Vote Category.” It’s ok to disagree with the decision as everyone is entitled to an opinion. However, I need to make it clear that there is connection between number of votes and being selected as a winner in the Grand Prize category.

        Its crap it should be judged on sonic quality and skill alone nothing to do with popular vote because that means the first ones to get their mixes out will get more votes because i have seen so many last minute entries that are 1000% better than absolutely every crap submission that gets popular vote so either this is rigged or these listeners are deaf.

        Indaba Music is one big scam, they will steal your music, your ideals, then create a fake submission to win their own judging contest so that they want have to pay the real winners, so they create fake submission, please stay away from Indaba they are one BIG Scam out to seal other artists ideals and possibly your music Brian McFarland is one big head bitch scam artist.

        I don't think people really understand that if the judge listens to a track, and the track isn't really what they are looking for, then they will bypass it and move on to the next one. Votes don't matter, and folks don't seem to grasp that concept. SMH. I for one listen to the tracks and can honestly say that most of them I wouldn't select, but for some reason those tracks get a LOT of votes. Just tells me that "non industry" people like just about anything. But at the end of the day, the Judges (artists) are in the industry and already know what's hot.
