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.
