More Open Mic Sponsors
@ausbitbank is a top 20 witness on Steemit involved in more supporting projects on the Steem blockchain than I can list.

He just reached out and donated 100 Steem per week to help Open Mic
@Curie helps curate new people who contribute good content and has been supporting Open Mic musicians behind the scenes since Open Mic started. They helped me and countless others get our posts seen when we first started on the platform. Many Open Mic musicians have been featured on their weekly Author's Showcase posts. They are a top 20 witness and have contributed 25 Steem per week for the next two months to help Open Mic. You can vote for them as witness here
MSP-Waves Radio in association with the Minnow Support Project and the Peace, Abundance, Liberty Network is a weekly radio program hosted by @Krystle, @swelker101, and @isaria that features the weekly Top 5 judges picks from Steemit Open Mic. Not only do they give weekly prizes to audience picked performers from the contest, but they have also started sponsoring Open Mic with a 25 Steem weekly donation! How cool is that? Thank you for helping support musicians on the Steemit platform.
Helpie is an invite only thriving community of Steemians supporting Steemians. They sponsor lots of different projects and initiatives. If you would like to be considered as a Helpie "minnow in training," please consider joining PALnet/MSP and participating in the community. We have scouts constantly looking for the right minnows to support, and they will reach out with a private invitation.
I just want to remind everyone that votes are only part of the selection process. Entertainment value and performance is factored in too.

The coolest thing about Open Mic is it brings the Steemit community together and that is the whole point of this project.
Meet up with the Open Mic community at Open Mic on Discord and chat with all of the people who enter Open Mic there. It's a great way to interact with the Open Mic community. Your links to your entry is automatically added to the Discord channel, so please don't add links, just come to chat with the community.
Steemit Open Mic Judges
@soundlegion, @krystle, @verbal-d, and @meno
Special thanks to @meno for help judging the contest this week. Great job.
Steemit Open Mic is not about winning or losing, it's about building a connections on Steemit through music. Watching the collaborations happen online between musicians who played and met on Steemit Open Mic is very rewarding and many of the people who play and post earn some nice rewards for playing a song.
For many, it's easier to get some Steem in your tip jar by playing for Steemit Open Mic than it is to play music on the street.
Steemit Open Mic Trending Posts
Top 20 Trending Open Mic Posts
NOTE: Having a trending post is not how judges pick entries for their Top 5 weekly picks. Sometimes you will trend because of a variety of reasons. Congratulations! You don't need to win Open Mic to earn rewards and build your audience. As you can see, sometimes trending posts earn more than the contest rewards! You could trend by getting curated by other curation groups like @curie for example. The judges look for entertainment value which, of course, is very subjective and varies over time. Just keep playing and engaging with the community which is the whole point of Open Mic. If you love music, we love you.
