Entries and Fees
All entries are to be made and paid on-line via www.stardom.com.au using the Stardom payment system.   The Stardom invoice becomes the Stardom receipt following payment.
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.

*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.
