The decent thing would be to make it clear that there’s a $30 fee for entrants in the post here rather than discovering it in the small print on your Facebook page.

I may be totally wrong, but this looks dodgy.
Googling "International Electronic Music Competition" finds very little apart from this announcement being made on several forums with similar interests as this one in the last couple of days.
They only have a facebook page, only created yesterday.
So, no background, no website, and payment is to be made to a Chinese Bank account.
How many alarms are going off?

Thanks Kwackman. You're not the only person to have flagged this up as potentially dodgy.

I also had a google around, and it's clear the 'organisers' have splattered this same promotional post around a lot of forums all at the same time. But I can't find any credible endorsements or support anywhere, and the idea of paying an upfront fee -- let alone paying it into a Chinese back account -- certainly does ring all the alarm bells.

This might be a well-intentioned but naive attempt at starting a genuine competition... but I fear it is a scam. Anyway, I'll leave this up till Friday to see if the organisers respond to the concerns raised. If they don't I'll lock the thread but leave it up as a warning to potential applicants.

Why, yes! He's using the money from some International Electronic Music Award thing he's set up. ;)

Well I have just spent the last hour listening to Chinese pop tunes, and there's some really good stuff! I was doing some Youtube searches for some of the artists mentioned in the post above and as per usual; I got distracted by the side bar, and glad I did ;-)
