Entry Deadline

All entry fees must be postmarked by 4/30/19 for eligibility.

Video performance date must be between February 15th, 2019 and April 30th, 2019. The video does not have to be a public or concert performance, simply an unedited video recording of the piece performed by the participant.


Although video creativity will not influence the judge's placements, audio/video quality certainly will! Make sure your video can be clearly heard in order to be fairly judged against other competing entries.


An adjudication grading system similar to Rubric Evaluation will be used. Judge's scores will be averaged for a final score. Judges comments will be emailed to all participants after results have been calculated.
