Funky Little Place...

...Offering a grand prize of $500 cold hard cash to whoever comes up with the best jingle.

I`d love to see what that contract looks like... :roll:

Is $500 enough to produce a track that could ostensibly be used by a business in perpetuity or is this exploitation?

It helps that the song is already written, but still I am weary about these types of deals in general since the market value for a jingle is usually much higher in my experience.

It's a good shtick for them, but is another example of how the business of things is screwed. This isn't the first time they've thrown this little contest is it? Most of them that I heard from before were pretty terrible IMO and lacked any understanding of what the actual intended use was. That being said, this is a pretty solid version with a proper format for radio use right out of the gate.
