  • [Game] 20th ANNIVERSARY FSC (MAR 2023) - Kamyanets-Podilskyi, Ukraine (РЕЗУЛЬТАТИ)

    Щасливої 20-ї річниці Пісенного Конкурсу "Форум" !!
    Happy 20th Anniversary to the Forum Song Contest!!

    Twenty years ago this month, the results for the first-ever Forum Song Contest was held. We can all credit TodayForever for coming up with the idea to start the contest. While he didn't stay true to his screen name, the contest did. That first contest appears to be a hastily put-together affair. People entered their songs only the week before, though there were nineteen submissions. There was no scorewiz involved, so the results were posted in thread. Not everyone voted, so the conclusion was anti-climatic as people waited fruitlessly for all the votes. However, our official records give the win of that very first contest to Canada.

    A second FSC was run immediately after that, but then the 3rd contest didn't appear until that following August when Tiger hosted. Sweden might have won that too, though the official records mark that as unfinished. So it started with a bit of disorganization. And it fizzled away until the summer of 2007 when Tiger chose to revive it at which point it became the iconic monthly contest we all know and love today. That 2007 contest included people who continue to delight us with their submissions into today - xtofer mondflug and chris975 are all recent participants, and it wouldn't be the same without them!

    The contest has gotten more sophisticated from those early days, but what hasn't changed it's a monthly chance to enjoy songs from all over the globe and visit a different place.

    To celebrate the 20th anniversary, we go to Ukraine - our fourth time here, courtesy of franklex, who has been a participant in this contest since 2014! To go with his win, he will be doing the logo design for this month. His winning entry to get us here was this glorious entry: As for our location, it has been chosen by franklex, who has provided the following video, which is probably more interesting than the static photos I usually provide you. He's chosen a rather scenic location for our anniversary.


    Kamyanets-Podilskyi is in the southern part of Ukraine, not too far from the Moldavan and Romanian border. It is an old city with a lot of culture to it, and a dramatic history that I'm not going to even attempt to summarize. As you can see in the video, there is beautiful and heavily fortressed castle that looks straight out of a fairytale. We're a little early for the balloon festival they have here every May, but you could check out some waterfalls along the Smotrichsky Canyon - named after the river running through it, the Smotrych.

    If you want to try some Ukrainian food, I suppose we could force franklex to make us something traditional, but I'm unaware of just how good his cooking skills are, so that sounds like a gamble. I'm sure it has some good restaurants to go with it. My sources are telling me Hetman might be one place to stop for Ukranian - is it worth it, franklex?

    In any case, grab some champagne (or a Ukrainian wine!) and enjoy the video! I hope you can celebrate appropriately by participating this month!

    I'll go with Belgium, but not confident about that one.

    As for the tags, I tagged people who have participated over the last few years, plus a few older names from the previous winner list. I promise I'll remove you from the list next month.

                      Yes it should be made. Ukrainian cousin is something you may do when you are in Ukraine. Last year UNEECO recognized borscht as an Ukrainian dish and a heritage of Ukraine. About myself, I've worked at restaurant for 5 years or so and do cook time-to-time for my rotates and friends. Especially they love cakes I've cooked :3 when I was in Spain I've cooked borscht and my Spanish friends said that they just do not eat this type of food but when I've come back from the city tour they left no single drop of it! And asked me to do more xD

                                              I think I might pass on this actually - despite saying I would take part. I didn't realise there was a requirement for the song to be less than 10 years old, and had a song ready planned, which is not less than 10 years old. I simply don't know/like enough songs that are both less than 10 years old, not top 40 hits, and not from countries already mentioned (e.g. UK).
