Registrations for the 2022 Boroondara Eisteddfod open Monday 21 March to Friday 29 April.

Section requirements

Section requirements and registration information can be found by clicking on the sections in the list below.

Participants can register for multiple sections, except for those registering in a section titled ‘Non-Competitive’ who cannot register for a competitive section within the same category.

For aged sections, a participant’s age is determined as at the final day of the Eisteddfod, 7 August 2022.

Digital sections

Performances can be recorded on any device, but must be made in a single, continuous shot. No edits are allowed in the submitted video. Any edits of the performance will result in the disqualification of the entrant.

Entrants may record as many takes as they wish, but only one may be submitted.

Entrants will not be judged on the quality of the recording or the quality of their instruments, they will only be judged on the quality of the performance.

At the start of the video, you must clearly state:

  • Your name, or name of your ensemble
  •  The section in which you, or your ensemble, are competing
  • The name of the piece(s) you are playing.

This introduction may be made by a parent, guardian or teacher. This introduction will not be judged by the adjudicators and will have no impact on the competitor’s score or report. However, it is a requirement of entry.

If you book an official accompanist for your digital performance, they will be available to record and send you a backing track to perform with. Please contact accompanists directly to arrange your backing.

If you would like extra rehearsal time with your accompanist via video chat or phone, this can be arranged directly with the accompanist and they will bill you separately for this as applicable.

Upload your recorded performance

You will receive a link to the Video Upload page by email on the morning your section submission period opens.

On the first page, under 'Upload message', include:

  • The name of the piece(s) being performed.

On the second upload page, you will be able to Drop and Drag your video file or click “Browse” to select your video file.

Your performance has successfully been submitted and will be provided to the relevant adjudicator for assessment.
