What You Need to Do
Every Student (Entrant) and/or teacher will need to create an account on YouTube. Teachers can use their YouTube account to upload student videoes sent to them or students (entrants) can upload directly to their YouTube account and then send their teacher the YouTube Link. Either way - we will only accept YouTube Links for the performance. Videos must be set to "public" or "unlisted" but not "private" as we won't be able to view them.
Complete the online application and upload the PDF of the Music and the Link to the YouTube video for each entrant.
You will receive an automatic email confirming successful submission of your application.
Video Tips for Students:
Name your video files with the student name, the piece(s) title(s) and composer(s) If the entrant is performing more than one piece then put the entire performance on one video. (Total performance must not exceed 8 minutes) (For Example: Miriam Jones: Appalachian Trail by John Berge)
Videos may be recorded on any device.
To ensure quality and consistency of the videos among entrants, set up the camera from the audience perspective, limit background noise and make sure the performance space is well lit. Test recordings are advisable before recording the final videos.
Prior to the recorded performance, the name of the entrant, name of the composition(s) and composer(s)/arranger(s) must be communicated. This may be done by adding a title to the video, by being announced by the applicant or with the applicant holding up a sign with this information.
Videos will be submitted on the application.
