Entries and Fees
All entries are to be made on-line via www.stardom.com.au.
Each competitor pays a fee per section entered, as printed on the computer-generated invoice, plus a single administration fee appearing on the invoice after all required sections have been entered.

*Where age limits apply the age of a competitor as at 30th June 2017 will be used to determine entry, unless otherwise stated.

*A timekeeper will be appointed and when the time limits stipulated are not adhered to then no mark, placing or prize is awarded to that competitor.    However the written adjudicator's report will be provided.

*The Eisteddfod Council reserves the right to cancel any sections which in its opinion have attracted insufficient entries and refund entry fees, or to divide or combine any section/s in consultation with entrants.

Grade Sections

Works from any recognised music examination, such as AMEB, for the grade level being studied 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 which has been accepted by Council.




MALCOLM ROWE VIOLIN - valued at $5,500

Malcolm has generously donated one of his superbly hand-crafted violins as a prize in this year's eisteddfod.   It will be on display during the String Division and Malcolm will be present some of the time for performers to try his instruments.   The violin will be awarded to a promising young violinist who would play and love the instrument.   Approximately three finalists, selected by our adjudicators, will be invited to an interview following which the winner will receive the violin at the Award Winners' Concert.
