QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q: Why won't we state the Studio next to each performance?
A: Because this way there can never be any bias towards a particular Studio and ensures each performer that they will be judged with an unprejudiced score.
Q: Why do we give a trophy to every performer?
A: Why not? How can a Trophy be shared and why shouldn't second and third place winners be rewarded for their performance?
Q: Why do we have talent management on our judges panel?
A: Plain and simple, we want outstanding performers to be represented and have the opportunity to get into the professional world of television, commercials, video and film.
Q: Why do performers compete against a points system?
A: If a performer is the only one in that age group, category or up against its own Studio, it will compete against the point system. Why? Because performers will still have the opportunity to compete and be judged on their individual performance.
THIS IS WHAT COMPETITION IS ALL ABOUT!
