Requirements: 
OVERALL 
Each piece should be filmed/uploaded as a separate piece of media. No continuous videos. 

SLATE 
 • There should not be a separate “slate” video, rather slates are to appear at the beginning of each piece. 
 • The proper slate for a song is to share your name, the title, and the show in which it appears.
 • The proper slate for a monologue is to share your name, the title of the play, and the playwright. 

SONGS 
Students should prepare 2-contrasting pieces:
 • One song should be a ballad and one song should be an uptempo
 • Each song file should be 60-90 seconds (this time limit includes the slate at the beginning of the piece and is strictly adhered to; please do not upload media files longer than 90 seconds)
 • Students must sing to a musical accompaniment, which include live or a pre-recorded accompaniment. No "a cappella" singing (meaning singing without music)."
 • Songs should be filmed in a ¾ shot which means the top of the head to the knees should be visible in the frame.
 • One song should be written prior to 1970. This song can be either the uptempo or the ballad (student’s choice). 
 • One song should be written after 1970 and contrast the style of the first. 

MONOLOGUE 
 • Monologue must be from a published play. 
 • Monologue cannot be from musicals. 
 • The monologue file should be 60-90 seconds in length (this time limit includes the slate at the beginning of the piece and is strictly adhered to; please do not upload media files longer than 90 seconds) 
 • ONE contemporary monologue written after 1950. • The monologue should be filmed in a "close-up" shot which means the top of the head to the chest should be visible in the frame. 

OPTIONAL WILD CARD 
 • Wild Card media is not required. 
 • Submissions should be no more than 60 seconds. 
 • This media can be ANYTHING you want: a special skill, an interesting story about yourself, a passionate speech, an instrument that you play, etc. “What do you want us to know about you?” and “What makes you unique?”
