Here's the judging rubric for the contest! It should look relatively similar to previous rubrics, with some categories cut down or merged:

Relaxation Theme (10 points): How effectively does your arrangement transform a high-energy track into a relaxing one, while still remaining recognizable as the original? Is the arrangement substantially different in intensity/mood from the original? Do your choices of voicings, instrumentation, tonality, etc. enhance the relaxing nature of your arrangement?

Featured Instrument (5 points): How effectively do you use the featured instrument throughout your arrangement? Does it play an interesting, varied role without being overbearing? Does it enhance the way your arrangement satisfies the main contest theme?

Musicality (15 points): Independent of how well it satisfies the theme, is your arrangement enjoyable and engaging to listen to? Do your choices of harmonies, chords, form, etc. make sense and work together to create a cohesive piece of music?

Presentation (10 points): The technical notation and engraving side, consisting of the following components:
- Is the score neatly formatted, with all information labeled? No need to follow the submission guidelines or nitpick over precise alignment fixes, but please make sure it looks nice and include: arrangement title, subtitle with original game and track title, composer, arranger, copyright, and measure/page numbers.
- Are all parts legible, playable, and notated correctly for each instrument? (e.g. transposing instruments correctly transposed, instrument-specific articulations correctly expressed)
- Does the score have enough articulations and performance directions? No need to go overboard, but it should be clear and detailed enough for a live group of musicians to play if they wanted to.

Popular Vote (10 points): What do others think of your arrangement? The popular vote will be conducted after the submission deadline, with higher scores if your arrangement ranks higher in the vote!

TOTAL: 50 points

(Belated) update! The deadline passed on Sunday; currently, we are waiting for a few more submissions from arrangers who have agreed to take a late penalty. No later than this upcoming Monday, all of the arrangements will be posted publicly, and the popular vote will open!

The submissions are in! We have 11 arrangements for this contest! You can find them here:

Arrangement Contest No. 10 Submissions

This begins the popular vote phase! Both arrangers and non-arrangers are allowed to vote! To vote, rank:
- all 11 arrangements, if you did not submit one
- all 10 arrangements except your own, if you submitted one
in a list numbered 1 through 10 or 11 (1 = favorite, 2 = second favorite, etc.). Submit these to me over Discord DM or forum PM! (Your votes will not be disclosed to anyone besides me.)

Everyone who submitted an arrangement is strongly encouraged to vote; doing so will boost your own score slightly (when calculating scores, I will treat your ballot as if you ranked your own arrangement 1st).

The deadline for submitting your votes will be Sunday, September 25th, ~4 weeks from now!
