Contest rules

  • Contestants will submit ONE difficulty of any licensed song they choose from the Featured Artist library.
  • Your map must be an osu!taiko map.
  • All submissions must be rankable. No beatmap submitted must be intentionally unrankable. Mistakes happen and points will be deducted for them, but this is a regular mapping contest, not Aspire. (You are 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.

Judging criteria

  • Judge's Impression (5 Points): Points will be assigned based on what the judge thinks about your map.
  • Ranking Criteria (5 Points): Points will be assigned based on how well the map abides by the Ranking Criteria.
  • Structure (10 Points): Points will be assigned based on how well the map is internally designed (consistency, concept introduction, etc.).
  • Relevance (10 Points): Points will be assigned based on how well the map represents the song and how well it plays.
  • Creativity (10 Points): Points will be assigned based on how the submission uses creative and fitting elements to make itself stand out.


  1. Hivie and Nifty will mod and push the winning entry to Ranked if the winner chooses to, and if they get the necessary difficulties to form a rankable spread when needed
