The organizers are also holding a contest until October 19. Participants around the world can submit their own Hatsune Miku song and the grand prize winner's submission will be performed at a future Hatsune Miku Expo concert. A two-week trial version of Hatsune Miku V3 English is being offered for free so more fans can participate. The song must be uploaded to the Soundcloud group Hatsune Miku Expo Song Contest.
The winner will also receive 30,000 yen (US$250) worth of products from SONICWIRE and tickets to the concert where their song will be performed by Hatsune Miku. Two runner ups will get US$250 worth of products from SONICWIRE.
