“$500 - thats a lot of Top Ramen.” - …Said some girl in college

“I’m entering just for the fame and recognition.” - the guy from the progressive automobile commercials (that wants to be remembered for more than just the guy from the progressive commercials)

“What’s a mixtape?!” - from the grumpy guy at the bus stop

“My mix is ill, i think im going to win…AGAIN!!” - Obama

There is something very special about making and receiving a mix tape. It takes enough effort to prove that it’s something you care about, and it carries the personality and the emotions of the person who made it in a way that a .ZIP file or Spotify playlist never will. You remember how this works—trying to fit all your favorite songs together in a way so they add up to a story all their own, and learning to use words and music by other people to say something you can’t quite say by yourself. Technology has made it easy to share music now, but sharing a mixtape is another thing entirely.

So this contest is simple. We want you to make us a mix tape. Pretend that we at FYF are your high school crush and that you are trying to win us over. The only thing we ask is that you are honest with the songs that you pick. Don’t try to impress us or give us what you think we want to hear. (That doesn’t work on crushes either!)

Show us what you really love. We want to know your guilty pleasures and the songs you sing out loud when you’re alone. We want to hear the songs you’ll never get tired of and the songs that you are gonna be in love with for the rest of your life. This mixtape won’t just be a bunch of songs in a pile—it’ll be you.


• Must be on an actual cassette tape!
• Must be at least 45 minutes. Do your best not to go over 90 minutes.
• Be creative with the design! Draw on it, sticker on it, paint on it—whatever!
• May contain anything you desire! No limits. Music if any kind, of course, but spoken word or instrumentals or soundtrack music and comedy is fine, too!
• Must come with a track list
• It does not need to be made on a brand new blank tape. Feel free to
• Tapes must be postmarked by Thursday, Aug. 16.

PO BOX 1558
