Welcome to Sydney Eisteddfod returning live in 2022. The Eisteddfod team is on track to deliver a comprehensive program of events and performance opportunities. Last year was a very bumpy ride for our performers. Choirs could not sing, orchestras and bands could not play together, actors could not rehearse, instrumentalists and soloists faced a video camera, audiences were grounded. On-again, off-again events have had huge impacts, especially for young people. Their motivation, well-being and sense of identity are intricately linked to interacting with one-another, creating meaning together and measuring themselves against their peers. Of course, the pandemic has also had its positive side: our Eisteddfod team, our volunteers, adjudicators, thousands of performers, their teachers and parents showed adaptability and resilience. From their experiences we have learned much that can enrich and extend our reach. Our sponsors and volunteers are integral elements of Sydney Eisteddfod. Our major sponsors and partners have provided valuable support and we thank them for their generosity. We also thank our individual volunteers and many individual sponsors and donors. As many of our participants and supporters will be aware, our former CEO Piroozi Desai-Keane OAM announced her retirement in last year’s program, following an association of forty years with Sydney Eisteddfod in various roles including fourteen years in the position of Chief Executive Officer. We have greatly appreciated Piroozi’s enthusiasm and dedication throughout her time with Sydney Eisteddfod. We wish her well in whatever she chooses to do in her retirement. We also farewell long standing Board Member, Barry Strong, whose continuous association with Sydney Eisteddfod goes back more than sixty years when he performed as a fine young baritone. Performers in recent years have come to know Barry as a friendly and efficient Volunteer Session Manager. We wish Barry good health and an enjoyable retirement. The Board welcomes Annette Brown as our new General Manager. Annette brings extensive experience and knowledge in music, dance, opera and event management to her role. We look forward to her ideas for building on the past and shaping Sydney Eisteddfod in ways that will engage even more young people from diverse cultures and backgrounds. While 2022 looks exciting enough, we are also looking forward to 2023 which will be our 90th Anniversary. But for now – on with Sydney Eisteddfod 2022.

MESSAGE FROM OUR GENERAL MANAGER Welcome Sydney Eisteddfod is back, live and on stage!

It gives me great pleasure to be able to write these words as after two years of cancelled performances and online events. We are finally back live and in person for 2022! It also gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the new General Manager of Sydney Eisteddfod. Hello! My name is Annette Brown and I am proud to be spearheading this historic company into a new chapter of opportunity and excellence. A little about me: For the last 15 years I have held positions with AMEB, The Australian Youth Orchestra, Sydney Youth Orchestra and Willoughby Symphony organisations that promote the arts and exist to give opportunities and training to the next generation of performers in Australia. My Sydney Eisteddfod story starts much earlier than this however, when aged 16, I competed in the Festival in the vocal section. To this day, despite moving house many times, I have still kept the adjudicator’s notes, both as a fond keepsake, and as a reminder of the power of encouragement, feedback and performance opportunity. This year we also welcomed new team members to the Sydney Eisteddfod family. I am a firm believer in the power of collaboration and the reality that no matter how passionate or hard working I am, a strong team working together will always be able to achieve more, reach further and aim higher than any individual. I am lucky to share the Sydney Eisteddfod office with a team that shares my vision for the future of this organisation. With that I say hello, welcome, I’m looking forward to getting to know you, and thank you to every parent, student, volunteer and audience member. We wouldn’t be able to do this without you and I can’t wait to share the next chapter of Sydney Eisteddfod with you.

dream

Sydney Eisteddfod is a not-for-profit, annual competitive performing arts Festival that provides performance opportunities to young performers across eight categories of classical singing, contemporary singing, choirs, piano, instrumental solos, instrumental groups, speech & drama and dance. Founded in 1933, it is now in its’ 89th year! For almost nine decades Sydney Eisteddfod has been contributing to the evolving culture of the Australian nation by nurturing the performing arts at a grass roots level. Since its’ inception, over 2.5 million entrants have performed on Sydney Eisteddfod stages, it now attracts over 35,000 entrants, who perform to an audience of over 170,000 people. Each year, over $400,000 worth of cash, scholarships and prizes are to be won! All levels of ability from beginners to experienced performers are encouraged to perform. The Festival provides opportunities for all to perform publicly and receive feedback from experienced adjudicators – it also connects like-minded people and fosters lifelong engagement in the arts. Some entrants perform for fun, others participate for the cash prizes or scholarships to enable future study – though the main reward for performing at Sydney Eisteddfod is often the pride, self confidence and friendships that young performers take with them on their future endeavours. Sydney Eisteddfod is brought to life each year by its performers, audiences, volunteers, staff and adjudicators. All involved leave a legacy that contributes to the organisation’s spirit and culture.

ACKOWLEDGEMNT OF COUNTRY

For over 80 years, the Sydney Eisteddfod has provided a pivotal contribution to the Australian performing arts ecology. After the disruption and challenges of the past two years, I am delighted to see the return of the 2022 Sydney Eisteddfod program. The Sydney Eisteddfod inspires young and emerging artists from all backgrounds, assisting them to reach their creative and expressive potential. It continues to provide a platform which showcases and celebrates the skills and talents of these artists, enabling them to lead artistically fulfilling lives both professionally and personally. I’m sure their experiences within the Eisteddfod will continue to resonate throughout their lives and elevate their practice.

To whom it may concern, Re: Sydney Eisteddfod 2022 Endorsement The Sydney Eisteddfod is part of the important music ecology of Sydney. They provide the opportunity for creative musical artists to perform and engage with audiences beyond their local environment. When playing in an eisteddfod young people start to engage with their peers in a way that helps them understand the breadth and diversity of creative thinking, and many of these interactions are the starting point for deep career friendships.

I would like to commend the Sydney Eisteddfod for its continuing support of performance artists from across Australia and New Zealand and through this, supporting the next generation into the professional world Yours sincerely,

Letter of support for Sydney Eisteddfod’s Annual Festival I would like to congratulate the Sydney Eisteddfod for holding its 89th festival and thank them for their dedication in encouraging Australians to dream, perform, achieve and inspire. For almost nine decades Sydney Eisteddfod has been contributing to the evolving culture of the Australian nation by nurturing the performing arts at a grass roots level. Sydney Eisteddfod’s activities revolve around the presentation of the annual Sydney Eisteddfod, a competitive performing arts festival that runs from May to September with a program of just under 350 classical and contemporary events that involve people, not just from the inner west, but across the whole country to share their creativity. Over 2.5million entrants have performed on Sydney Eisteddfod stages, competing for leisure, cash prizes or scholarships for future study. It now attracts over 35,000 entrants, who perform to an audience of over 170,000 people. Due to the Covid-19 health pandemic, the 2020 festival was unfortunately cancelled, and last year’s festival (2021) was, in part, conducted online through digital submission. I hope all who attend this year’s events recognise the level of talent on show and best of luck to all the amazing entrants in 2022. Yours sincerely

Message from the Mayor of North Sydney, Zoe Baker It is a pleasure to see live events such as the Sydney Eisteddfod returning after a nearly twoyear hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Sydney Eisteddfod is one of the largest performing arts competitions in the world and I’m delighted a number of performances will take place in North Sydney this year. Running for almost nine decades, the Sydney Eisteddfod is unique in that it nurtures the performing arts at a grass roots level, yet gives young actors, singers and musicians from all around Australia and New Zealand an opportunity to perform for live audiences in large-scale venues. It is anticipated that 35,000 budding performers will take part in the 2022 Sydney Eisteddfod, performing to an audience of more than 170,000 people across a program of 350 classical and contemporary events. This year, spectators will be able to watch young opera singers and musicians perform at the Independent Theatre in North Sydney or listen to teenagers compete in verse and poetry at the Lighthouse Christian Church in Crows Nest. Having events of this scale on our doorstep makes the arts more accessible to our community and will help inspire our future performers here in North Sydney. I wish all the participants the very best for their performances in the 2022 Sydney Eisteddfod. zŽƵƌƐ ƐŝŶĐĞƌĞůLJ͕ Žģ ĂŬĞƌ D zKZ

You (or a representative) must register at the venue at least 15 minutes before the start of your session or EST (estimated starting time) as advertised and hand in any relevant material. Registration can be only accepted prior to the Session Manager declaring the session open. Late registration, or those who miss their turn, may perform at the end of the event or division for ‘comments only’, not for a placing and subject to time. TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT, PLEASE ALLOW TIME FOR TRANSPORT DELAYS OR PARKING. Unless the event conditions specify otherwise, required material must be submitted to the Session Manager when registering. This includes printed music and backing USB. A spare copy of each USB should be retained by the entrant. All materials must be clearly labelled for identification with the event number and your entrant number. Only original published music (submitted at your own risk) and USB should be collected immediately at the conclusion of the event. Photocopies will not be returned as per APRA/AMCOS Policy. In age-specified events you must carry proof of age, to be shown if requested, this also applies to members of groups. All entrants must perform when called, in program order, except in circumstances approved in advance by Sydney Eisteddfod. Listen for changes announced by the Session Manager. The order of performance is generally assigned in random order by our database. Entrants are called from the auditorium to the stage including choirs and instrumental groups. Separate warm-up areas may not be available except for finals. Groups will receive specific instructions when registering at the venue. The instructions of Eisteddfod Official Representatives must always be followed, otherwise disqualification may result. Teachers and nominated helpers supervising groups are deemed responsible for their group and the behaviour of its members.


inspire Dress suitably for performance. You should announce the title of your item/s to the audience before you begin. Some events require such announcement as part of the presentation. Dance, drama and ensemble items can be introduced by the Session Manager only if titles are clearly written or typed and submitted when registering. Time limits are strictly enforced and performances that contravene the set limits will not be eligible for consideration of a placing. Ensure your performance is well within the specified limit. Timing starts with the first note, dance step, action or word and ends with the last note, dance step, action or word. Bows with music are timed. If two items are specified as ‘A’ & ‘B’, each will be timed separately excluding announcement of titles. If a ‘Total Performance Time’ is stipulated, the clock will not stop between selections and the whole program must be within the limit, including announcement of titles. VENUES: Our 2022 venues are listed in this Program (check under ‘Contents’ on page 3). YOUR ACCOMPANIMENT: An Accompanist Pass is issued to Sydney Eisteddfod’s Official Accompanists and all those whose names appear under the Directory of Accompanists (check under ‘Contents’ on page 3). Only piano is to be used for accompaniment except in dance or other events where recorded or other instrumental backing is expressly allowed. If you wish to use the Official Accompanist, where allocated to your event, they should be contacted at least three weeks in advance of your performance to organise adequate rehearsal and to discuss your music. To arrive at your event and expect the Official Accompanist to perform without a prior rehearsal is discourteous to both the pianist and the competition. Services of the Official Accompanist at the competition are free but our recommended rehearsal fee is $45 (including GST) per half hour. An accompanist is not obliged to play poorly presented, difficult or illegible music at sight. Private accompanists do not need to purchase an admission ticket, provided they introduce themselves to the Ticket Seller and enter the auditorium with the entrant and both register with the Session Manager. Recorded accompaniment (for dance and amplified singing events) must be on USB only, clearly identified for each event (with Event Number and Entrant Numbers written directly on the USB and not on the cover). It is always wise to carry a second copy, to be retained by the entrant. The music is usually started once you are in position on stage and stopped when deemed to be the end. To avoid possible embarrassment, write ‘ON Stage’ or ‘OFF Stage’ on your USB & tell the Session Manager how your performance starts and finishes. Only the one track to be performed should be on the USB - we do not accept responsibility if the wrong track is played where a multi-track USB is submitted. Please test your USB on standard audio equipment (not a computer or car) prior to the day of your event.

PRIZES: Following adjudication, written reports are available for every entrant except in those events where it is stated no reports are given. Appearance Advice should be at the ready, if requested, when claiming your adjudication report, collecting any original materials or USB. Place-getters are presented with a Commemorative Certificate and medal (or shield for groups). Certificates are also presented to Highly Commended performers and finalists. Individual group members can purchase awards and certificates if ordered through the representative who lodged the entry. All orders must be placed via email: production@sydneyeisteddfod.com.au no later than one month after completion of the event. Prize money is payable via EFT. Those applicable are requested to supply their bank details no later than 1 MONTH after winning a cash prize. More information on this process will be sent to the Applicant via email, after the event. If you have not received an email within two weeks, please email accounts@sydneyeisteddfod.com.au to follow up. Cash Prizes need to be finalised no later than 30 September 2022 or MAY be forfeited. CERTIFICATES: Entrants in groups who wish to obtain an individual certificate with their name in brackets under the Group Name or those who do not achieve a place but would like a keepsake can buy a specially prepared certificate for $5 ($10 posted). This must be ordered from Sydney Eisteddfod via email to production@sydneyeisteddfod.com.au All orders must be placed no later than one month after completion of their event. STAYING IN CONTACT: For us to keep in touch with you, it is essential that YOU keep in touch with us. Email all changes (address or contact details) or queries to production@sydneyeisteddfod.com.au Please don’t submit changes over the phone. We have thousands of entrants each year and we are unable to handle large numbers of phone calls. Entrants from the country or interstate must also provide their Sydney contact details relevant to their attendance at Sydney Eisteddfod events. ACCOMMODATION DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE: Sydney Eisteddfod has partnered with IBIS Budget, Sydney East and Accor Hotel Group to offer discount rates to our entrants for groups and individuals. Twin Share rooms are available to SE customers for $109 per night including breakfast.* For groups, share rooms with bunks accommodating up to 4 per room are available at a group discount.* Please call (02) 9326 0300 or email H5675-GM@accor.com and mention Sydney Eisteddfod to receive special pricing. *Subject to availability.

SYDNEY EISTEDDFOD PROGRAM 2022


1.

Events are open to all comers, subject to stipulated individual event conditions. Entries must be received at the office of the Eisteddfod prior to the close of each event. Please refer to our FAQs. Entries must be completed correctly online, or they will not be processed. Responsibility for correct entry rests with the entrant. The Eisteddfod cannot be responsible for entries lost through failed electronic transmission. An ENTRY ACKNOWLEDGEMENT RECEIPT will be sent to the email address provided on the entry form, confirming the events entered and fees paid. Entrants must contact the Eisteddfod if this acknowledgement is not received within 10 days of lodgement. Entrants are advised to check the details carefully and notify the Eisteddfod immediately of any errors, including spelling of names, etc. Corrections cannot be made after final timetabling. 3. All Eisteddfod correspondence is via email. It is the entrant’s responsibility to ensure that Sydney Eisteddfod emails are not blocked by spam filters. 4. Entry fees are not refundable except when an event is cancelled or in accordance with the Eisteddfod’s current health and safety policy. Entry fees cannot be transferred to another event should entrants change their mind after final timetabling. 5. Entries submitted after the commencement date of the Eisteddfod will be subject to an additional (late) fee. Late entries are only accepted without obligation, subject to final timetabling and capacity. Sydney Eisteddfod reserves the right to publish a list of ‘additional entries’ on its website in Entrant Corner with further extra names sent to venues. 6. A person or group is permitted to enter only ONCE in the SAME event, except where otherwise allowed. A school can enter more than one group in the same event provided individuals appear once only; non-playing and non-singing conductors excepted. School events can only be entered with bonafide students of the school. Schools which enter more than one group in an event must supply a list of names in each group when they register on the day of the performance, otherwise only the first group programmed will be eligible for a prize. 7. The names and birth dates of all entrants must be provided for solos, duos, trios and quartets. 8. No person may enter under a name other than their own LEGAL NAME. Entries are NOT TRANSFERABLE from one person to another in events where individual performers are named. 9. Prize money is now payable via EFT. Those applicable are requested to supply their bank details no later than 1 MONTH after winning a cash prize. More information on this process will be sent to the Applicant via email, after the event. If you have not received an email within two weeks, please email accounts@sydneyeisteddfod. com.au to follow up. Cash Prizes need to be finalised no later than 30 September 2022 or MAY be forfeited. 10. It is an entrant’s responsibility to ensure that all banking information provided is accurate. Sydney Eisteddfod will not accept responsibility for any effect arising from incorrect or mistaken bank details. 11. Purchase of a Festival e-Program is compulsory for all entrants except where they come from the SAME FAMILY ADDRESS. Duo/Trio entries must purchase one program per entry. Teachers submitting entries for individual students must include the cost of a Festival e-Program for each student, except where students share the same family address. It is recommended that groups from the same academy or school buy a Festival e-Program for EACH teacher/conductor/ supervisor. 12. An Appearance Advice for each event entered will be emailed to the address supplied on the entry form after final timetabling is completed, listing event date, session time, venue and entrant number. This document should be brought to each event for identification purposes. This may be presented electronically on a phone or tablet if preferred. Please email production@sydneyeisteddfod.com.au if this Advice hasn’t arrived by the end of the third week of April. 13. The Eisteddfod reserves the right to amend or refuse entry; to disqualify or deny participation; to alter or reduce the prizes as published; or to amend, cancel or combine any event, particularly should there be insufficient entries. AGE LIMITS 14. Entrants must perform in events applicable to their age only, unless an event has no age specified. Age is determined as at 31 DECEMBER of the current Eisteddfod year. Event restrictions such as ‘16 and under’ mean that only those who are 16 or younger on 31 December of the current Eisteddfod year may take part. Performing in a different age group for any reason is strictly prohibited. Events titled ‘Any Age’ ARE OPEN TO EVERYONE and can be entered by persons of any age. 15. At events where an age limit is specified, every entrant (including group members) must have proof of age available on the spot if requested by an official (e.g. copy of birth certificate, etc) or risk disqualification. Random age checks may be carried out. A group member in contempt of age requirements will render the whole group liable to disqualification and possible bar from participation the following year. 16. Age limits do not apply to non-playing / non-singing conductors and private/official accompanists. PERFORMANCE 17. Entrants perform at their own risk. Entrants agree they are of good health and fitness and physically able to participate in an event. No liability will be accepted for any injury sustained whilst carrying out that performance. 18. Entrants are expected to be prepared for their event at the time of performance. Sydney Eisteddfod representatives and adjudicators are not permitted to advise, interpret or vary any rules, conditions, or any aspect of the conduct of the Festival, and the Eisteddfod will not accept responsibility for any effect arising from such unauthorised comment. 19. Entrants (or a representative) must register with the Session Manager (or as directed) AT LEAST 15 MINUTES before the start of the session or EST time (Estimated Starting Time) as advertised. Please allow time for transport delays or parking. 2.

20. Registration can be only accepted prior to the Session Manager declaring the session open. Late registration, or those who miss their turn may perform at the end of the event or division for ‘comments only’ - not for a placing, and subject to time. 21. Entrants must appear in strict numerical order except in circumstances approved in advance by the Eisteddfod. Such requests must be submitted, with appropriate evidence within 10 working days before the event date via email to production@ sydneyeisteddfod.com.au. The order of performance in Finals is at the discretion of the Eisteddfod. All entrants must be ready to perform when called. 22. An Event or Division with an EST will never commence before this time but may commence after this time if the proceeding event or division runs overtime. 23. A copy of ‘Own Choice’ material must be provided for the adjudicator (unless the event states otherwise) and should be given to the Session Manager when registering on the day of performance. Only original published music (submitted at your own risk) should be collected immediately at the conclusion of the event. Photocopies will not be returned as per APRA/AMCOS policy. The onus of choosing the correct material rests with the entrant. Suitability, quality of choice and degree of difficulty are taken into consideration by the adjudicator. 24. Published or unpublished work is allowed unless a ‘Test’ is specified. No personal transposition of music is permitted except in folk song, junior vocal, contemporary singing, choral, instrumental solo and group events. 25. A different item is required for each event unless repeats are specifically allowed. Items performed in a Heat must be repeated in the Final unless otherwise stipulated. If it is specifically indicated that an item may be repeated, it may be repeated ONLY ONCE except when progressing to a Final. An entrant found repeating an item other than where allowed will be eligible for ‘comments only’ - not for a placing. 26 Groups performing in Finals must consist of the same individuals as in the Heats, without augmentation unless prior permission is sought and granted by the Eisteddfod. 27. Performances must be kept within specified time limits. If a performance goes under a stipulated minimum or over the maximum time, the entrant will not be eligible for a prize, and receives ‘comments only’. Except for announcement of the item title, time is determined from the first note, dance step, action or word spoken to the last note, dance step, action or word spoken. Bows during the music are timed. If separate times are noted for ‘A’ and ‘B’ test items, the clock will stop for each. If a ‘Total Performance Time’ is indicated, the clock will not stop between any selections or movements. The Eisteddfod timekeeper’s record is final. 28. Entrants may themselves announce only the title of their performance item/s. The Session Manager is not required to make this announcement. 29. Entrants will not be permitted to perform ‘out of section’ to qualify for championship events. All prerequisite events must be performed in order to qualify for championships. ACCOMPANIMENT 30. Accompaniment in vocal and instrumental events must be acoustic piano except where otherwise stated, or the original has an obligato instrument. In ‘Test’ marked ‘unaccompanied’ only a keynote or chord can be given before the performance commences. 31. Official accompanists, if appointed, are not obliged to play poorly presented, difficult or illegible music at sight. Prior rehearsal is always advisable. Private accompanists do not need to purchase an admission ticket, provided they introduce themselves to the ticket seller, and enter the auditorium with the entrant and both register with the Session Manager. 32. Where recorded accompaniment is permitted, this must be on USB ONLY except where submission by emailing an MP3 file (not M4a or MP4 format) is specifically requested. After receiving revised advice from APRA/AMCOS, Sydney Eisteddfod will once again RETURN USBs TO ENTRANTS. These need to be collected with the reports at the conclusion of each event. USBs will only be kept for one week after the conclusion of an event, after which they will be securely destroyed and recycled. 33. Please ensure the USBs are uploaded properly, as per the guidelines given, and tested in a music system (not on a computer or car music player). In case of USB failure, subject to the venue, a phone can be used, as a backup (refer to separate ‘USB Policy’). 34. USB must be clearly named with a tag including Entrant Number & Event Number. USBs will NOT BE ACCEPTED if this information is not clearly marked. There must only be ONE file on the USB handed in for the Audio Technician to play. If more than one file is on the USB this will hold up the event and marks may be deducted. 35. Each USB audio file must contain only ONE item (refer to separate ‘USB Policy’). 36. No entrant may rehearse in competition venues during the period of the Eisteddfod except in official rehearsals arranged by the Eisteddfod. 37. No teacher, parent or designated supervisor (unless an accompanist or conductor) will be allowed on stage or in the wings at any time, except those registered in a supervisory capacity with groups. For further information please refer to Speech & Drama category rules & conditions No 4 and Dance category rules & conditions No 4. These supervisors must be listed with the Session Manager when registering at the event. Supervisors must remain with their group at all times but are not permitted on stage unless performing with their group. 38. Prompting is not permitted, except by the adjudicator only in junior speech & drama events if deemed necessary. 39. In case of USB accompaniment failure during performance, the entrant should stop singing or dancing, leave the stage immediately and wait for instruction from the Session Manager. Once the sound technician has loaded the back-up, the entrant may recommence performance without penalty. In ‘live’ performances, any entrant who ‘breaks down during their performance’ or ‘suffers memory lapse’ and leaves the stage will receive ‘comments only’, unless they remain on stage and continue their performance within the time limit.

40. Standard of dress is as important as the performance. Personal presentation appropriate to a stage appearance may be taken into consideration. It is the teachers and parents responsibility to ensure that all competitors dress age appropriately. The use of explicit language and gestures is prohibited, and entrants should avoid items of an overtly sexual or undignified nature. If content is deemed inappropriate by the adjudicator, marks will be deducted. 41. Entrants must use dressing rooms provided and not dress in hallways or foyers. 42. BAD BEHAVIOUR: A high standard of decorum is expected from all participants and patrons. Behaviour, which is contrary to the spirit of the event, especially if directed at Eisteddfod representatives, adjudicators or entrants, will result in the offender/s being asked to leave. Offending entrants or entrants associated with offenders will be disqualified and may incur future bar. 43. Any person or group found responsible for defacing or damaging a venue or equipment will be disqualified and the Eisteddfod may take steps to recover from them any costs of repair. Supervisors of groups must remain with their groups at all times and will be held accountable for the actions of their groups. ADJUDICATION 44. The adjudicator/s’ decision in accordance with the rules is final. 45. If fewer than five entrants register on the day of performance, or if a satisfactory standard is not achieved, the decision to award prizes will be at the discretion of the adjudicator. Prizes cannot be divided and none extra to those listed in the event program can be awarded (e.g. tied positions are not permissible). Should the Eisteddfod or the adjudicator decide not to award a prize, such decision shall be final and binding. 46. Any person who is related to or been taught or coached privately by an appointed adjudicator during the six months preceding the opening date of the Eisteddfod is barred from participation under that adjudicator. 47. Communication with an adjudicator is strictly prohibited. If it is established that an entrant or person associated with an entrant has made personal contact with the adjudicator before or during a session that entrant will be disqualified. 48. A substitute adjudicator may be used for a listed adjudicator. Any event may be divided for program purposes and any event time or date may be altered if necessary. 49. An adjudication report, if written, will be available free of charge to the entrant or in the case of groups, the supervisor. Please note reports cannot be scanned and emailed to entrants, however reports may be posted if a stamped self-addressed envelope, with the event and entrant numbers clearly identified, is supplied to the Eisteddfod to an address matching our records. 50. Any protest on the basis of age or ‘vocals on USB’ will be determined on the spot by the Session Manager by inspecting proof of age or checking the submitted recording. Please refer to Item 51 below. 51. Any protest of a technical nature other than in Item 50 must be referred to the Eisteddfod for settlement and its decision accepted without further question. Such protests must be in writing accompanied by a deposit of $50 and lodged at the registered office of the Eisteddfod no later than 4pm on the first working day after the event affected. If the protest is upheld the deposit will be refunded. Please refer to Item 52 below. 52. A protest can only be lodged by an entrant, teacher or parent affected in solo events or in the case of groups, by the group’s conductor or representative as named on the entry form for the event or by the principal of a school or academy. 53. Legal requirements prohibit private use of cameras or recording devices at our venues and events. Laptops, iPads, tablets, pagers, alarms, personal headsets and all other electronic devices must be switched off in competition venues. 54. The Eisteddfod will not be liable for personal items lost or stolen. Valuables should not be brought into competition venues and any school bags, handbags, instruments or other items should be under the supervision of someone nominated by the entrant at all times. Lost property will be held by the Eisteddfod office or venue for two months only. 55. The Eisteddfod will not be liable for any copyright infringement relating to the submission of photocopies. Entrants should be aware of the APRA/AMCOS rules of copyright. 56. Any rights that should be obtained in respect of recorded music for performance are the responsibility of the performer. The Eisteddfod holds a licence issued by APRA/AMCOS. 57. The Eisteddfod reserves the right to record, film, broadcast, telecast, videotape or photograph any entrant, item or event in the Eisteddfod without notification and any such photograph, recording or broadcast may be used at the Eisteddfod’s discretion for publicity or promotional purposes, but shall not necessarily constitute an endorsement of any participants, and no remuneration or compensation whatsoever shall be attributable to any participants so featured. 58. The Eisteddfod, at its sole discretion, may promote or publicise the profile of any entrant and their participation and publish names and suburbs in the festival program and competition results, including photos via electronic and printed media at its discretion. 59. Personal details provided by an entrant on the entry form are for the Eisteddfod identification use only and are not released to third parties except at the Eisteddfod’s discretion after consultation with the entrant to known organisations when an opportunity may be beneficial to an entrant. 60. Failure to comply with any of the foregoing rules and conditions may cause withholding of prizes, disqualification, and/or a future bar. The decision of the Eisteddfod in all questions or disputes arising out of or not provided for by these rules and regulations will be final. All entries are received according to this condition and in the spirit of friendly competition upon which the Eisteddfod is based, and no dispute shall become the subject of any appeal at law. 61. TICKET SALES: Tickets are non-refundable. All patrons (including children) must hold a valid ticket for the ‘Principal Dates’. At general sessions, all children 4 years and over will be required to have a valid ticket. You may wish to refer to our FAQs for other useful information.

2022 Calendar

The “TIME” column shows the Session Commencement and “EST” (Estimated Starting Time) which is an indication of when other events or divisions in the Session might start. If the duration of an event is expected to be short, the following events may be allocated the same times. An event will not start earlier than an “EST”, but may be delayed if the previous event runs overtime. The number of entrants who attend on the day, item duration and adjudication time will influence the actual timing. The letters A to F following an event number indicate a division of that event. Events in the body of the program will show the Session Time or the “EST” if applicable. Registration: Entrants, (or a representative) should register at the venue at least 15 minutes before the start of their session or “EST” time as advertised.

thank you to PETERSHAM RSL CLUB Sydney Eisteddfod extends a special thank you to Petersham RSL Club, with particular mention to CEO Mr Danny Fitzgerald and Marketing Manager Marty Nigro, for their continuing support. Last year marked an incredible 31-years of partnership between Sydney Eisteddfod and Petersham RSL Club. Together, we have provided over 18,000 aspiring vocalists with an unrivalled platform to pursue their dreams. Since Sydney Eisteddfod’s commencement of Contemporary Singing in the 1980s, it has become one of the largest and most popular categories in our program. Without the continued generosity of Petersham RSL Club, it would not be possible to present the vast number of events we offer annually, and so we express heartfelt gratitude to them.

Entrants are not allowed to take material of any kind into this room, including mobile phones or other electronic devices. Paper & pen will be provided for notes. NEWS READING/RADIO ANNOUNCING EVENTS: When reading the script you should scan it first to determine the categories of information e.g. the opening introduction should be warm and inviting; if that is followed by news then the reading style should be more serious and without embellishment; if the weather comes next then present that in a warmer, friendlier style (we all share the weather in common!) and sport also should be a warm, friendly read (it’s just a game!). Smiling when you speak is an easy way to make you sound warmer. Try to ascertain what words or phrases are important in the script and what are less important when reading items other than the news. Slow down a little with important phrases; speed up a little with less important phrases. That way you get some variety, colour and warmth into your presentation. Try and move away from speaking at the same pace all the way through. Entrants need to understand the value and importance of particular words to give them emphasis in a sentence. When the script is delivered in a monotone, it makes it less important and also not pleasing to the ear. Mobile Phones will be permitted in the preparation time however not allowed in the recording studio. IMPORTANT NOTICE: Sydney Eisteddfod’s mission continues to promote ‘live’ performances in our annual Festival. However, should a pandemic preclude this, it reserves the right to ask all entrants to send in videos to continue to be able to perform their work/s. c)
