Sunshine Coast 2022

Due to the worsening COVID situation, its current impact on many of our competitors, and expected impact on attendance at the 2022 Queensland Eisteddfod, the Eisteddfod Council of Queensland Management Committee have made the difficult decision to cancel the planned event at Matthew Flinders Anglican College, Buderim. To be faced with this decision for yet another year has been incredibly challenging, as we know it will be for our competitors and supporters as well.

HOWEVER, we are exploring the option to offer an online alternative, as we know how hard competitors have been working to prepare, and we need your input to help us determine what that will look like and if it is indeed viable for us to do so.

Based on the information below, competitors are asked let us know via email to 2022@queenslandeisteddfod.org.au before 5pm Tuesday 29 March if you:
(a) Yes, would like to compete via digitally-recorded entry for all of your entered items;
(b) Yes, would like to compete via digitally-recorded entry for some of your entered items (please list which); or
(c) No, would not like to compete via digitally-recorded entry.

Deadline for entry submissions would be 11.59pm Thursday 14 April 2022.

Technical Requirements: You would need to upload your recorded performance (entry submission) for viewing by the adjudicators. Full instructions would be provided. The audio-visual recording capabilities of most smartphones are more than adequate.

Official accompanists would still be made available, without the restriction of sessional availability (ie. you could use a single accompanist as convenient to your location), at the same cost as previously advised.

Results: All submissions would receive written feedback from the adjudicators, with 1st, 2nd and 3rd place performances being streamed in a “highlights” broadcast (details to be announced).

Entry Fees: In the event that an online event is convened, entry fees will be refunded for any items that are not held as part of the online event and to any competitors responding NO to competing via digital recording. In the event that no online event is held, ALL entry fees will be refunded.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to find alternatives in this less-than-ideal situation.
