  1. The Border District Eisteddfod (BDE) holds an Australian Performing Rights Association (APRA) licence that covers the public performance of all copyright musical works at this event. In 2017, a new licensing scheme was introduced to all eisteddfods. It is based on a per entry rate of 90c (ex GST), and has been included in the entry fee for performers. BDE also has an arrangement with the Australian Mechanical Copyright Owners Society (AMCOS) that allows entrants to photocopy an original piece of sheet music for adjudicators. An entrant may supply the adjudicator with an unlicensed copy of the piece provided that (a) the original is used by the entrant for performance or held at the venue for inspection and (b) the Executive Committee or its delegate destroys the copy immediately after the adjudication. A Declaration form is to be filled in and handed in with the adjudicator copy.  Forms can be downloaded from this website. Entrants must perform from original published editions of music, unless prior permission has been obtained from the copyright owner.  
  1. Competitor’s names and/or photographs may be used for promotional or marketing purposes. Should this not be appropriate, the Eisteddfod Committee MUST be notified.
  2. The adjudicator’s decision is final.
  3. Unless specifically invited by the adjudicator, contact with the adjudicator must not be made directly by teachers, competitors or parents.
