  1. Every care will be taken for competitors’ safety, but the Committee will not be responsible for any injuries sustained by any competitor and or damage to property during the Eisteddfod.

  2. By entering the Border District Eisteddfod, you agree to abide by the rules and regulations as outlined in this 2021 Schedule.

  3. Entries will not be accepted unless accompanied by the correct entry fee. Entry fees are not refundable unless cancelled by the Committee or there is an error in the program.

  4. Requests for sections to be heard at particular times are to be either given in writing/emailed to the committee or can be made through Stardom when processing entry. The committee will endeavour to accommodate requests however, no alterations will be made once program is complete.

  5. Age is determined at 1st January, 2021. The committee reserves the right to ask for proof of age.

  6. In the individual solo sections, competitors may enter only once per section per instrument. Competitors may enter more than once playing a different instrument.

  7. In duo and trio sections, competitors may perform twice in these sections with different partners in any one section. In duo & trios, the eldest performer must enter the relevant age section.

  8. School bands and orchestra competitors must be of school age, appropriate to the section with the exception of the accompanist.

  9. Time limits must be observed. An item may be shorter than the limit but not exceed it. To meet time limits, excerpts of verses are acceptable and repeats may be omitted from music. Timing is from when competitors enter the stage until they leave it (includes set-up and pack-up time).

  10. The preferred method of accompaniment for all instrumental sections is a pianist. The official accompanist’s details are listed above. If using an electronic accompaniment, competitors must supply their own sound equipment.

  11. The Border District Eisteddfod (BDE) holds an Australian Performing Rights Association (APRA) license 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.

  12. 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. This can be done online when submitting entries.

13. The adjudicators decision is final.

14. Unless specifically invited by the adjudicator, contact with the adjudicator must not be made directly by teachers, competitors or parents.

15. Adjudicator comment sheets can be obtained from the table at the back of hall.
