  • not involve other people or excessive props (follow the guideline for the live regional heats which specifies that props ‘are limited to what you can carry on stage’).

We are not assessing video/filming quality. We simply need to be able to clearly hear and see you, so there is no problem submitting entries filmed on a smartphone.

  • Complete the online registration form and paste the link to your video in the relevant field.

Please note that of the participants who submit a video entry, a maximum of two may be selected to compete in the national final.

If you’re successful at one of the heats, you will be invited to a two-day Communication Masterclass that will help you develop invaluable media and presentation skills. Details of the masterclass will be announced after the regional heats.
