Bienvenue! We’re going north to Canada for the second edition of Fête de la Chanson. This edition’s rule is:
The artist singing your song must be from one of the 50 American states or 12 Canadian provinces. Territories are allowed and you’re free to pick any state or province.
The deadline to confirm is 20 September, so you have lots of time to find an artist and song. Confirm by commenting on this article or sending an email through the contact box on the about page. Some of the key dates for this edition are:
- Confirmation/Song approval deadline: 20 September
- Song release: 20 September
- Late confirmation/submission deadline: 27 September
- Voting deadline: 4 October

Probable Participants (You can’t take these states, these people will most likely/are going to send an entry)
Possible Participants (You can take these states, but these people have an advanced claim to them, so if they want them, they’ll get them)
Until the 20th, happy state hunting!
EDIT: Just to clarify, don’t publicly announce your songs now but do send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can approve their eligibility! This seems to be a slightly confusing issue and if I can help you iron out problems now, it’ll make the contest go a lot smoother later. Thanks!
SECOND EDIT: People! If you are having trouble finding a song from a state, don’t forget that Canadian provinces are competing. So when your favorite American artist is stolen, just remember than the Great White North is totally open for any artist from there, bar Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia.
FINAL EDIT: The song premier is happening! Come over here (https://fetedelachanson.wordpress.com/2014/09/20/fete-de-la-chanson-2-the-songs-2/) for the fun!
