  1. On the Syllabus and Registration webpage, look through the syllabus for category options, and then register.
  2. Film a video of your performance(s) – one video file for each class.
  3. Make sure you announce your name and title of selection(s) at the beginning of your video. Try to make sure your hands, face, feet, and props are visible. We understand that not everyone has the space to make this possible.
  4. Upload your recording to your own YouTube channel, Google Drive or Dropbox as a PUBLIC or UNLISTED video – so anyone with the link can view it. Email a link to your performance to gm@vayafestivals.ca by the deadline date. IMPORTANT: We require PDF copies of any participants’ original works. Copies of non-original work is not required, but in the event that you are performing something obscure that the adjudicators do not have access to, we will contact you for a digital copy. PROOF OF PURCHASE IS NOT NECESSARY.

Objectives of the Festival

  • to support and foster speech arts, drama and creative writing students through bursaries and scholarships
  • to give participants the benefit of expert criticism from unbiased adjudicators
  • to help participants acquire self-confidence by performing before an audience

We look forward to seeing you there!
