Our stage is not too big for the novice performer, nor is it too small for the aspiring professional.

Highest Achievement:

To refine talent, performers will have to compete against tough competition firstly on provincial level, and then on a national level with the final event being an international competition. Performers will be subject to strict judging by professionals in each form of the Performing Arts.

STARS OF THE UNIVERSE January 2025

INTRODUCTION
At STARS OF THE UNIVERSE we are passionate about the performing arts and as much as we like to yield performers, it is of the utmost importance that they will have fun, make new friends and learn about the performing arts through our events
Our stage is not too big for the novice performer, nor is it too small for the aspiring professional
To refine talent, performers will have to compete against tough competition on an international level. Performers will be subject to strict judging by professionals in each form of the Performing Arts. When performers receive top awards, they will feel satisfied that they have achieved some of the highest placing in Performing Arts based upon international standards
Participation in an international competition inspires creativity, originality and a steadfast identity in who one is as a performer and person as a whole. Preparation on this level teaches performers dedication, discipline and sacrifice to their craft for the overall improvement on a personal and professional level. It also encourages a healthy sense of competition in aspects of both winning and losing



Due to the Covid situation and with everyone’s safety as the highest priority:
All Talent Africa Regional Qualifiers and Nationals will be available both as live event, should restrictions remain favourable  or via video ( Virtual)
Every performer has the right to decide on video entries even if a live event is available
Should you choose a live event where available,  after payment is received for entries, contestants will receive a link to upload their backtrack music. For dancers, vocalists, instrumentalists where needed

If you prefer to submit a video entry rather than attend and perform at a live event,  or if no live event is not  available in your area, once you have entered and payment has been received, you will receive an email with a link to upload your video

Should a live event be postponed due to Covid we will notify all live contestants that their respective performances for that event will be postponed to a more suitable date and will be given a choice to move entries to the next available region or qualifying event, or submit a video for their performances by date of no later than 4 weeks from such a postponement
