    More info:

    The Nur Ein is an eight round song competition. In each round, the participants are given a song title and a mandatory challenge and are given a week in which to finish that song. Then this year's group of Nur Ein Judges will listen to the songs and rate them from best to worst. Each round whittles down the field until we are left with only 1 competitor. Creativity x Skill x Time Management = Nur Ein!

    The sixteen edition of the Nur Ein will begin on Monday, May 10th with Round Zero. Round Zero is the way you enter the competition. That day, the first title and challenge will be announced and the participants will have until Sunday May 16th at 11:59PM (Eastern Daylight Time) to create a song which uses the title and completes the challenge. The competitors must submit their songs via e-mail to nurein.sidefight which is a gmail address. The songs will then be posted at the Nur Ein website ( and the next title and challenge will be announced at the same
