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.
LATE ONLINE entries 2017 will now be accepted until 31 August. (The entry fee for an individual entry increased from R175 to R185).
Any one that experienced difficulties with submitting an entry on 6 August due to an internal error can submit details of the error to email@example.com in order to qualify for the standard entry fee.
(A second phase for late entries will become effective as from 1 September 2017.)
