  1. Every contestant had to pick a music for his entry and provide a link to it in the level vault.
  2. No Mario Music or Music from other platform game. Other Nintendo is fine, but there cannot be any video game music based off of terrain (i.e. Jungle Japes or Space Something, and so on and so forth).
  3. If you're doing a miniseries, you have to use the same song for every part of it.
  4. The rule of having no inappropriate content such as excessive swearing etc. applies for both your level and your song.
  5. Once you have a good start of a level which can be posted as a reservation in the vault, you can claim your song by linking to it. Then nobody else is allowed to use it.

  • What a finish this was for MoD and Venexis, winning with only 0.04 points ahead of Volkove. This is the closest margin between second and first place until today.
  • Therefore the first winning collaboration in history was also the second winning collaboration, and Volkove already got his seventh silver trophy.
  • This was a very high-class LDC considering that nine out of 14 levels scored 15 or higher, this percentage is without rival, even against the LDC's with 8 and less entrants.
  • Aside from the very special 21st LDC, this was the first and only time of two people hosting an LDC together.
