osu!Kpop Mapping Contest

Hi! We are the osu!kpop community and we are happy to announce our first kpop mapping contest! Our goal is to promote kpop as well as discover new and talented mappers, as well as spread and share our love for the korean culture. All the information regarding organization, prizes and possible questions including the contest rules can be found below.

We are osu!kpop community, which is currently a relatively small Discord server where we, fellow kpop fans, gather to discuss various kpop news, events as well have a bit of a general chat with friends and talk about mapping various things. Long story short, we love kpop and we want to share the love with others as well as spread our love and get new kpop fans to join us along the way.

This, however, is quite hard to achieve as kpop is not often talked about and there is only a very small number of kpop songs being ranked these days. Therefore, we decided to run a kpop mapping contest. Our goals are simple, we love kpop and we want to share that love.

  1. Register as a Judge applicant or as a Contestant through the link in the "Registration" section. Once you send your submission you will be given an invitation to the osu!kpop community server, The server will keep you up to date and offer you all the information you need, also it will allow you to meet the osu!kpop community.
  2. The base .osz file will be released at the beginning of the contest at this specific date 31th of july 20:00 GMT. The link to the .osz will only be available to those in the discord server.
  3. As soon as the .osz file is release the contestants have a total of 12 days period to map a single difficulty.
  4. The contestants must name their difficulty according to her/his osu! user name, this will help us identify your mapset
  5. Once the contestants finish mapping their map, they should send their individual .osu file of the map they created to me (Lilyanna) via osu! PM's.
  6. After the 12 days period has ended, no more entries will be accepted. Judges will be given anonymous .osz sets and they will make their scores based on the Judging Criteria.
  7. The judges won't be picking top 3 or a winner , they will pick top 5 best entries and from there those top 5 will go through a voting system from the community, we will announce the top 5 mapper's name and map and we will release a poll in which you can vote.
  8. Once the voting period has finished, I'll announce the results of the top 3 entries by releasing them to the public.

  1. The difficulty have to be logical the map should match the Ranking Criteria.
  2. No collaboration with other contestants or other people outside of the contest - this is an individual work, you must show your own skills.
  3. Submissions will not be accepted after the deadline to be fair with everyone.
  4. Custom hitsounds outside of the provided ones are prohibited - we want your maps to be judged equally, therefore any custom hitsounds outside of the provided ones are not allowed.
  5. Changing the mp3 or timing of the .osz is prohibited since you will be submitting .osu - changing the mp3 or timing can cause confusion while judging and going through the map.
  6. The osu!Standard Ranking Criteria and General Ranking Criteria are in effect for this contest. The winner’s map will be pushed to ranked, hence the Ranking Criteria plays an important role in order to rank the mapset.
