The National Eisteddfod Academy (NEA), a registered Non Profit Company, has combined the magic of the arts and the basic human desire for esteem and recognition to develop the traditional eisteddfod into a powerful tool that supports the personal growth of participants.
The first step is to register ONLINE, either as a school or as an individual.
It is not only the very talented performer that would derive value from this program. All participants will benefit from participating in this process due to the impact of arts activities on personal development and growth.
An important consideration in any project that eventually seeks to develop interest in the arts, is that this process should start at a young age. Someone that grew up without any interaction or exposure to this is very unlikely to value and appreciate arts in adulthood.
The rescheduling of events is not allowed. This practice unfortunately became totally unmanageable in the past. A few years ago, this was replaced with a system of special entries as per the Rules and Regulations. As participants also had an opportunity to submit special requests pertaining to unavailable dates, no requests in this regard will be considered. Participants must adhere to the process and procedures as outlined below.
The last opportunity for LATE ONLINE entries 2017 is now available for participation in the currently active regions. (The late entry fee for an individual entry is R200 per individual entry).
Special Entries ("rescheduled entries") will be charged at R165 per entry (provided that the details of the entry to be replaced is submitted WITH the proof of payment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any special request pertaining to the unavailability for participation on particular dates had to be submitted by 10 June already. As the new regional / local area structure and online publication of dates allows for a staggered approach to scheduling, individual participants may still submit urgent special requests, but ONLY on the prescribed from. PLEASE NOTE: These requests can ONLY be accommodated WHEN POSSIBLE. Please submit by email to email@example.com ONLY.
