  • Please note that all reading and unprepared items are excluded from video submissions. This is because they require the input of the adjudicator before performance hence they cannot be pre-recorded. For more information check the requirements in the Speech and Drama Prospectus. Reading items may be entered as Virtual entries when live participation is not possible.
  • We have already received some videos entries that are not in line with our requirements. So as to avoid having to re-record the videos, kindly refer to the the Video Entry Help File which is available on our website & Prospectus, as well as in Pdf file format.
