    BoR final.gif While not the easiest contests to enter, creative contests are definitely the most rewarding ones to host. These contests allow our users to shine through, and we’re surprised by you each time we hold one. Whether it’s wallpapers, merchandise, or even a TV design, your creative spirits always generate true works of art.

    Our recent ZenSound campaign – where we invited you to submit soothing sounds and music created by yourself – inspired us to bring a new challenge to you,

    We know that ringtone creation is uncharted territory for many of you, but we want to ensure that anyone – amateur or pro – can have a shot at winning this contest! Your efforts may win you the OnePlus Buds Pro, our newest noise-canceling earbuds. What’s more, all valid entries will get a prize, so there’s no valid reason for you not to try your luck!
    • Feel like designing a melody for a ringtone is too hard? Don’t worry! You can participate in the notification sound category instead! You can take inspiration in the sounds around you (or even record them with the built-in recorder app)
    • Have a melody in your head but not quite sure how to turn it into reality? Check below for some tips and tricks to get you started!
    • Convinced already and ready to go? Check the rules below and start working on your entry!
    How do I participate?
    • Prepare your amazing creation. If you’re new to audio creation, you can find some easy ways to start in the “Tips and tricks” section.
    • Upload your ringtone or notification sound (under 5 seconds) to Google Drive. Alternatively, you can use YouTube. Either way, make sure to save the original file, you’ll need it if you’re selected as a winner.
    • Submit your entry here. Make sure to fill all fields correctly and double-check if your share link is public. CLOSED
    What are the rules?
    • Ringtones and notifications sounds must be your own creation.
    • There is no maximum length for ringtones, but we recommend them to be under 30 seconds.
    • If you’re selected as a winner, you must provide the original file and any relevant source files to be eligible for the prize.
    • The contest will run from now to September 24, 23:59 HKT GMT+8.
    • The entries will be ranked by the OnePlus Community team for prize attribution.
    • Standard terms and conditions apply
    What do I win?
    • The best 2 ringtone entries will receive our brand-new OnePlus Buds Pro.
    • The best notification sound entry will receive our brand-new OnePlus Buds Pro.
    • The top 10 valid entries will receive 500 RP, and all other valid entries will be rewarded with 100 raffle points. You can use RP in our regular raffles to win prizes or save them for our special raffles with guaranteed prizes.

    Tips and tricks (and helpful links)
    • Designing a ringtone can be as easy or as hard as you want. There are ways even an uninitiated (like myself) can start creating. Music Lab’s Song Maker is the perfect starting point. Running directly from Chrome, it allows you to create a melody in seconds.
    • Still too much of a hassle? You can simply use the built-in audio recorder to prepare a notification sound.
    • Feel adventurous? There are other more advanced Chrome-based music studios like Audiotool and Soundation. Both have great tutorials for you to get your way around.
    • If you prefer to prepare a ringtone on Android, Soundtrap by Spotify is a great place to start, but the Play Store is your playground.
    • If you’d rather use your computer, there are even more options to try whether you’re team OSX – with Garageband – or team Windows – like FL Studio‘s free trial.
    • And if you need help turning an audio file into a YouTube video, this might help.

    Hey @Daniel D. I am little bit confused.
    Is there 2 categories for all the participants (i.e. ringtones and notification tone) to participate or just one - all of the participants need to submit only one tone and OP team will judge in two categories. 🤔
