Call for entries – help file

We realize that many parents do not have much experience in entering their kids or providing assistance in the preparation that goes with it. For this reason we have introduced a number of new tools to assist interested parents, including

  • The Guidelines & Summary of Steps that includes a number of help files (FAQ’s) to guide parents through the process of registering and submitting entries online. 
  • An online platform where interested learners can request virtual coaching in the arts (to be facilitated by members of the NEA Adjudicators Forum). 

Closing date for Live / Virtual /Video Entries:

  • The closing date for Online Live & Virtual  entries is 31 July 2020. (Normal entry fee still applies).
