  3. Upload your recording to your own YouTube channel as an UNLISTED video – so anyone with the link can view it. Sorry we cannot accept Google Drive or Dropbox links. IMPORTANT: We require PDF copies of all works being performed. Proof of purchase is not necessary.
  4. Instead of emailing a link and script to us, your registration receipt will include a link to a private VAYA webpage where you will send us your YouTube links and script pdf’s.
