Battle of the Bands
Battle of the Bands Application is a voting contest held between the
high school bands in your station's viewing area. A certain number of
bands are pitted against each other every week. People login to the site
to vote for their favorite band. The band that is crowned the champion
receives a prize and presentation. Weekly prizes can also be presented.
This contest provides great exposure for the station, sponsor(s), and
The regular high school football season runs for 10 weeks. The high
school football season usually starts in late August or early September.
Important Dates for 2011
The contest normally starts with the
first regular season high school football game in late
August or early September.
A certain number of bands per week will "battle" in the
voting for 8 consecutive weeks. The last 2 weeks of the high school
football season will be designated as the Battle of the Bands
championship. The top decided number of vote getting bands throughout
the previous 8 weeks (certain number from each week) would be voted on
during this time to decide a champion. The winning band will be
presented a trophy and a prize at halftime of a high school football
game or pep rally, etc.
Viewers are required to register. Minimal information
will be required in order to become registered. Viewers can signup and vote
with multiple email accounts. Email updates are sent out each week to draw
viewers back to the site and increase station/sponsor branding.
Registration information that is required is validated.
Duplicate emails are not allowed. Viewers must activate a check box that
states that they agree to the rules and terms of the contest. A password is
generated and sent to in an email confirmation. Viewers are notified
immediately after registration and their login information is emailed to
them. The password is easy to remember and an "auto-login" link is sent with
the registration confirmation email.
Viewers can simply click on a link within the email that
takes them to the site and logs them in. If they choose to login manually,
only their password will be required. Viewers can also bookmark the page if
they are the only ones voting from that computer. Viewers can submit their
email address and have their login info emailed to them again if they forget
or misplace it. There is also an option to log off of the account. This is
useful if more than one person is voting from the same computer.
Viewers are emailed when they register, before weekly
votes and after the champion has been announced. The emails can contain
sponsor information including text coupons that link to an online coupon or
web page if desired.
Weekly voting is allowed until a certain time. At that
time, the page is disabled automatically and is not available until the
votes have been announced and the new bands are listed. Once a viewer votes,
they can no longer vote until new bands are announced.
The contest automatically displays the winner for each
week. CMK Media administers the application. We are in charge of adding
schools for the weekly polls and updating the brackets. Past voting weeks
information can also be made available. This includes the name of the bands
in the weekly poll (vote totals can be displayed if desired).
