IMPORTANT:

Prior to submitting the form, upload your performance to YouTube as a public or unlisted video. A link to the entry video needs to be shared on the entry form.

Submit a $25.00 entry fee by check, credit card or PayPal.  Directions outlined in the entry form.

All entry fees must be postmarked by 05/01/21 for eligibility.

The video does not have to be a public or concert performance, simply an unedited video recording of the piece performed by the participant.

JUST AS IMPORTANT:

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.

Adjudication

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.
