Welcome to the 2nd edition of the osu!taiko Featured Artist Cup!

Contestants are simply asked to map a song from a specific list of 44 osu! Featured Artists, but, this time there's a catch:
You have to submit 2 difficulties, the main difficulty that will be judged + a Muzukashii difficulty!

Yes, we're aware that muzukashiis are tricky to map, hence why we're using them as a judging element for this edition! After all, the true best mappers are the ones most proficient at mapping all kinds of difficulties.

1st Place: KyeX
2nd Place: woosungko
3rd Place: duski

- The contest will consist of one round where contestants will submit a mapset of any licensed song they choose from the list of Featured Artists below.

- Songs must not exceed 4:30 minutes of length.
We're going to have a bit of leeway in cases where the song is really close to the 4:30 mark.

- Your map must be an osu!taiko map.

- Your mapset MUST include TWO difficulties: the top difficulty + a Muzukashii difficulty.
Any entry that is missing a difficulty will be disqualified.

- All submissions must be rankable.
No mapset submitted must be intentionally unrankable. Mistakes happen and points will be deducted for them, but this is a regular mapping contest, not aspire.
(You're allowed to ignore spread rules for the sake of this contest.)

- Maps must NOT be uploaded / shared with others before judging and results are announced.
Sharing your entry publicly by any means before the results are announced will get your entry disqualified, no questions asked.

- Submissions will not be accepted after the deadlines.
No exceptions.

Please make sure that your song choice is available in this page prior to mapping!
