Hints for making a good video audition recording:

Please choose a room/venue for the video recording that doesn’t have a lot of reverb for better clarity of sound.
We strongly recommend microphones be placed 3-5 metres away from the performer. Closer or further proximity can often obscure sound quality.
The camera must remain still from the beginning to the end of the selection. The artist’s face and both arms and hands must be visible at all times.
Any indication of editing within any video will disqualify the application.
Videos that are unplayable, inaudible, or faulty such that the judges cannot evaluate the performance will disqualify the application.
High-quality audio will enable the judges to better evaluate the performance.
