RULES FOR THE WOODWIND DIVISION
Competitors, teachers and parents are advised to read the general Rules and Conditions very carefully.
In addition, Competitors entering the Woodwind Division should note that:
1. They may play any number of pieces or movements unless otherwise specified, provided that the specified time limit is not exceeded.  The interval between pieces and movements will not be timed.  Competitors may enter a section on more than one woodwind instrument.
2. In Grade Sections, works from the current Syllabi (any recognised music examinations, such as AMEB, ABRSM, Trinity College London, St. Cecilia or Australian Guild of Music and Speech) for the grade level being entered must be played.  Competitors who have entered a Grade Section where they are obviously more advanced than the level entered can be disqualified by the Adjudicator if he/she feels that there is a discrepancy or after receipt of a protest.
3. Competitors may only enter two under age sections in any given year.
4. In under age sections previous First Prize Winners may re-enter the section in which they gained their prize in the year following only.  For all other sections previous First Prize Winners are ineligible to enter again a section in which they were awarded First Prize.  However competitors may enter a section again playing a different woodwind instrument.
5. In Sections where age limits apply, the age of the Competitor as at June 30, 2017, except for W939 where the date is November 1, 2017.
6. A legible piano score copy of the music to be performed must be provided for the Adjudicator.
7. In Sections W437 competitors are asked to provide the title and duration of the works to be performed at the time of entry.  These are the works that must be performed by the competitor unless the competitor has applied in writing to the Convenor no later than four weeks before the scheduled date for permission to change the works.  The works being performed will be checked during booking in.  Competitors who have not received permission to change their works will be allowed to perform but will be disqualified from receiving any awards.
8. Competitors in the Woodwind Division should take note of General Rules 15 and 21; these refer to booking in requirements and the order of competing.
9. Please refer to General Rule No 17 about ‘prompting, coaching, conducting or directing’ of a competitor by a member of the audience.

10. For a complete performance if a piece of music has an accompaniment it should be performed with the accompaniment.   It is difficult for an adjudicator to consider a performance for an award if it is performed without the accompaniment because part of the skill of performing is collaborating with the accompanist.

BOOKING IN: Could each competitor please have his/her name and the names of works and their composers clearly written on a sheet of paper ready to hand in to the booking-in person.   This doesn't apply to Section W438 because this information has been provided at entry.

An encouragement award of $50 will be awarded to a double reed player who performs in the Woodwind Division.   This is supported by the Geoffrey Hackett-Jones Double Reed Trust.

The Gabor Reeves Woodwind Medallion will be presented to a woodwind player for excellence in performance.   Gabor Reeves was a clarinetist in the Queensland, Sydney and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras before coming to Adelaide in 1964 to teach at the Elder Conservatorium.   He became a foundation member of the University of Adelaide Wind Quintet.   He left Adelaide in 1974 to teach at the Sydney Conservatorium.   Gabor Reeves died in May 2008.

Competitors entering this Division should also look at the Adelaide Eisteddfod Concerto and the Eisteddfod Ensemble Event.
