Represent a Country is a series of Audio contests on Newgrounds hosted by NeonProject. The aim of the contest is for each participant to represent a country of their choice and submit an original and entertaining piece of music. Participants who take part in the contest go on to become well known across the Audio part of Newgrounds, artists such as LK412 and Chungstarr have gone on to develop further sucess after taking part in the contest. The contest has not only become a celebration of world culture, but has also become a huge celebration of the audio portal artists. The contest is open to anyone in the audio forum, whether it's newcomers, well known Newground artists or the contests own veteran artists.

The first contest was entirely judged by a panel of judges, scoring each act in the following categories; Representation, Originality, Sound Quality and Entertainment. In the Second Contest the entries were played over internet radio station Radiogrounds. Viewers, at the end of the show, were given instruction on how to help their favourite act by voting for them. The Public votes were then combined with the Judges scores.

Represent A Country 2 (April 2009)Edit

Switzerland

Flag of Switzerland, the winning country of RAC 2

The second contest expanded on the formula created in the first contest. The second contest also gained more interest, this was evident through the number of participants. In the first contest there were 8 Entries, in the second contest there were 17 entrants. The Second contest brought a lot of change, for a start, it was the first contest to be aired on Radiogrounds. Rule Changes also occurred. The Time limit was raised to 2:30 - 3:50. People were also allowed to apply for the same country, however, they would have to take place in A Semi-final and battle the other people aiming to represent that country. Tracks weren't allowed to be submitted to the portal until a week before the contest. This rule confused people and was dropped halfway through the contest. The scoring system was changed to a Eurovision style scoreboard, with points being allocated to the acts. DJ Trancite was the Winner of the Second Contest.

Represent A Country 3 (December 2009)Edit

The third contest took place in December, with signups starting in November. It followed the formula of the second contest very closely, only there was a slight shuffle in the points categories. Due to people not submitting pieces, there was no semi-final and the contest preceded with the final. This was also the first contest to actually have NeonProject himself host the show. There was a total of 19 entrants for this contest, with Chozz taking the top place

Represent A Country 4 (Summer 2010)Edit

The contest is due to start signups, however the specific dates have not yet been announced. In this contest the score system will once again go through a change, with the Contestant votes category being split into voting blocks. Artists, once they have submitted their track, will be assigned into voting blocks. These blocks will consist of 5 artists each, they will then select their top artists from the contest, but they will not be allowed to vote for anyone inside their own block. This system has been put in place to spread the points around and to make it impossible for an artist to gain top scores from every single category.
