Entrance Rules

Entries (song, dance, routine, whatever) can come from any individual or group representing the eligible countries and must be original works.  While we don’t intend to censor performances, we reserve the right to exclude any song for any reason.

Entries must be sent in via the internet in an acceptable viewable format and will be voted upon by the jury and the public, using a points system for content, musical, performance and entertainment value.

The composer / writer doesn’t necessarily have to be a native of the country entering the piece, but in the spirit of the competition, the performers should live in the country and PSC can reject the song if we believe it is in questionable taste or doesn’t live up to our culture.

Entrants (Song writers and Performers) must be over 16 years of age, unless special arrangements are made and any performer under the age of 18 must have approval of their Parents or Guardians to Enter and to allow their material or image to be published on any of our websites.

Any copyright or ownership legalities will be deemed to be under the jurisdiction of the entering country.

While entries aren’t limited to only song-based content, the performance judging criteria will put more weight on the music content if it has words and will more heavily mark just a pure music / dance / performance routine.

The entries will need to be sent to us as a 16:9 video via YouTube (watch our Facebook Site for news on when to enter).  The resolution isn’t critical for the initial judging, however be aware, that should the performance be chosen for the country final, the Entrant will need to have the resources to send us an HD file.  It is anticipated that any finals performances will have some assistance from local Television sponsors to film the finals version.

You will need to give us a few details about yourself when you enter and you have to agree that we have non-exclusive rights to any music and lyrics, content, performance and anything else contained in the performance to use and promote as we see fit.  If we can help you with industry contracts after the event, then we will, and you can make other non-exclusive commercial agreements with the material, provided that our non-exclusive rights are included in those agreements.
