VOCAL COMPETITION RULES & REGULATIONS
As the competition is on-line, participants (SOLO or DUET-GROUP) are required to perform within their relevant age group, and video-record their performance. The song must be no longer than 5 minutes, except for songs included in the nominated categories of Classical and Original in which the songs could be longer.
Each contestant (Solo or Duet) can participate in a maximum THREE out of the SEVEN categories and are allowed only ONE song per category.
Each GROUP can participate in only ONE out of the SIX categories and are allowed ONE song.
The song will have to be recorded in a video format with accompaniment music as the jury will want to hear and see the participants’ performance.
Accompanying music instruments are ALLOWED.
Play-back singing is not allowed and if noticed, the respective participant will be DISQUALIFIED.
Studio recordings, stage performances (including TV shows and other live festival performances), and play-back signing will automatically be considered and included under the category of: ‘Video Production / My music video’.
Applicable to all participants: any song with offensive or violent expressions will not be allowed and will be immediately DISQUALIFIED from the competition.
