The 4th BJSC Veto Framework

The new framework has been designed with increased clarity and fairness in mind. The points system has been overhauled with the addition of 5 points and the expansion of 10 points beyond the 'double trifecta'. Following a 2016 feedback exercise, the practice of 'moderator discretion' will be reintroduced. The moderators will be able to veto tracks that are against the spirit of the framework and competition, but don't quite attract enough points to be vetoed. The moderators will also be able to overrule an automatic-veto in cases where the entry is within the spirit of the framework and competition but through a quirk in the framework picks up more than 25 points. Where the featured artist is the primary vocalist or has a material impact on the song, then they will attract full points. Otherwise featured artists will accumulate points at 25% of their standard value (i.e. 3 points instead of 12)


How to calculate the points.

The Framework is divided into two sections. One based on the artist and another on the song. In each section there are a series of subheadings. The subheadings are the various veto clauses, such as "Spotify Global Chart". Under each subheading is a list of points and the conditions for being awarded that point amount. Not all of the possible points (3, 5, 7, 10, 12, 25) will be represented under each subheading. You will be awarded the points for the highest condition your entry is marked against. For example, if your artist has been sent 3 times in the past 30 contests you would pick up the 10 points for the 3 past times but not the 5 for the 2 times or 3 for any entry. You will only be awarded one set of points per subheading, with the exception of the "Other" heading where points will be allocated for each condition triggered.

The Veto Threashold is 14 points or 1 12 pointer. Automatic Vetoes occur at 25 points - subject to moderator discretion. If your entry is vetoed you will be provided a list of reasons that will be published by the moderators. You retain the right to appeal a veto decision via a PM to a member of the moderator team. You should detail why you believe your song is compliant with the spirit of the framework/contest and thus why the veto should be overturned.

The Anniversary Entries Framework

**In order to make use of your anniversary entry for your 50th, 100th or 250th contest you must inform moderators 2 months in advance of the artist and song being entered. Please state why you are entering this artist in your notification to the moderators. The artist should be significant to your nation in someway. The artist you select will be the only artist you can use for future anniversary entries so chose wisely. Anniversary entries will be accepted only where they comply with the below conditions**

- Song has not charted in the UK Top 40
- Song has not previously been entered to the Buzzjack Song Contest
- Artist/Song choice was submitted to the moderators two contests in advance
- Artist is the same as the artist registered against your nation for anniversary entries
- Song is not from the artists most recent/current* era
*delete as appropriate

Moderator discretion will apply at all times and songs deemed 'too well known' will be denied entry. Reasons will be provided and right to appeal is unaffected by the anniversary status.
