  1. Video Submission Deadline – April 1st 2021.

  3. The performance video MUST be newly recorded and specifically made for the year-end competition. Previously recorded performance video(s) will not be accepted. Editing a speech clip onto old video(s) is also NOT allowed. 

  4. Each candidate can only send ONE video – this video can include one or more pieces, and it must meet the requirement of the limited time for the category. 

  5. When performing a different piece/instrument with a new camera angle, candidates must say/show the opening speech again. This is to ensure the performance were newly recorded and specifically made for the year-end competition.

  6. Candidates will be disqualified if the submitted video does not meet the requirements above. 

  7. The video is encouraged to be creative, but this is NOT a must. Here are some ideas for reference: 

  • Make a stylish or artistic video by decorating the background.

  • Perform with other musician(s).

  • For candidates who have mastered more than one instrument, they could make a video where they played different instruments.

  • A performance video in which one person plays multiple parts of the music is allowed.
