We’re doing it differently this year! Your entry will be a video submission of you (or your group) busking, with a maximum length of 10 minutes. The video has to be of you actually busking, not playing in your living room or home. Please take a few snapshots of your setup too so your viewers can get a sense of your setup and where you are.
You can then do some basic editing of your video – putting on some titles, adding some reverb if you wish – however it must be the original audio from your live busking session. You can’t overdub or add additional sound effects or tracks. Let’s keep it real!
Once submitted, all entries will be published online and then a window of voting will open for the special Peoples Choice Award. The three most popular entries regardless of the age category will win Peoples Choice Awards (1st, 2nd, 3rd), and our ANBC judging panel will choose recipients for the National Champions Award and Title as well as special prizes.
There is $6700 of prize money up for grabs, so get out there and get busking!
Registration opens on the 21st of November. You will find a link to the registration page at the bottom of this page.
There will be a voting period from 14th – 30th December. This is when you can get as many people to vote for your entry as you can. The entries with the most popular votes will win the peoples choice cash prizes. The winners will be announced on the 31st December and contacted to arrange the prizes to be transferred either by electronic payments or by cheque.
Please scroll to the bottom of this page for the registration link (it will be active on the 21st November). Please read all the relevant information before registering, to ensure a smooth application process. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us!
