Updated December 2017 (changes/updates in red)
G1. Every year, E-MC has twelve regular editions (one each month), two special editions and one Best of the Best edition, according to the following calendar:
G2. Each member represents the EBU/EUR active member (or any other sovereign european country) of his/her choice and submits a song for that country.
G3. The singer/group must be from the country the member is representing with the following exceptions:
G4. The song can be any length.
G5. From E-MC 76 on, the song cannot be an eurovision entry as the members decided on a poll (see results here). Appart from that, it can be any song, as long as it follows rule G3.
G6. E-MC members MUST check the "All entries" file to make sure the chosen song was never sent to E-MC before and, if it is a cover, the original song (or any other covers of the same song) was never submitted to the contest.
G7. If a member doesn't send a song THREE editions in a row, the country will be set free immediately after the start of the third of those editions.
G8. A member can change country if, and only if, he/she has already represented the current country for THREE editions.
S1. Submitting a song means sending an audio file to the manager. The formats accepted for the audio file are mp3, m4a, wav or wma files. If a member wants to submit a song that he/she only has the audio or video link on the net, he/she must work in a way of converting that song to one of the formats listed above (Real Player - Free edition is a very easy-to-use software that allows downloading music videos and then converting them to audio files).
S2. It is optional to submit a link for a video clip and/or a picture to be used on the online radio.
S3. Qualification round:
S4. In the final, members vote using the eurovision style (12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1) and indicating also the 11th, 12th and 13th places on their individual ranking of all songs (reserved votes). Reserved voted will be used if some countries that were given points don't vote.
S5. Every member that does not vote before the deadline, will end with 0 points.
S6. Regular editions are hosted by the winning country of the previous edition.
S7. Every year, during February, members are invited to submit ideas for the special editions. In March members vote for those ideas in order to decide the themes for both special editions.
S8. The first special edition is hosted by the country represented by the member that submitted the theme for that edition.
S9. The second special edition is hosted by the country that won the first special edition.
S10. The Best of the Best edition is hosted by the country that won the second special edition.
S10. The Best of the Best edition each year has all the winners and runners-up of the editions from that year, plus songs that ended up with the same points as the second place(s).
O1. At the beginning of each edition, the songs will be available to listen at the specific pages.
O2. E-MC is for fun. Any offensive comment or any written misbehavior won't be allowed. The consequences may be expulsion from the group.
