Eisteddfod Competition 2016
This year’s formal Eisteddfod will be a friendly competition for the attendees represented at ECG. This is all in good fun and should be an exciting addition to the already amazing event.
Up for grabs will be a small medal, laurel, or other small token of esteem. The winner will also have the responsibility of judging the ECG 2017 competition along with honored guests.
Please note, this competition does not replace the free-form Eisteddfod we have had in years past. Attendees who do not want to compete, but would still like to perform will be welcome to do so after the competition each night. We do ask that, in the spirit of consideration and courtesy, each performer present a 3- to 5-minute piece and limit their performance to only once per night.
Ranging over three nights, the completion will take place as follows:
• 5 to 10 slots will be available for each night.
• A sign up-sheet will be posted in the mess hall every day at lunch.
• Presentations can be any kind of performance: song, poem, dance, etc.
• Presentations should be 3 to 5 minutes long.
• Entries need not be solo – duets, trios or group performances are just fine.
• Judges’ opinions are completely subjective but will be loosely based on three criteria: creativity, execution and over-all effect.
• Each night the judge will pick the top three performances to compete in the final round on Saturday night.
• The competition will start approximately ½ hour after bonfire lighting.
Thursday Night, September 15th
Friday Night, September 16th
Saturday Night, September 17th (two parts)
Final Round – Saturday Night
After a break from the previous round Judges Tom, Nicole and Lorraine must reach a consensus
This will be the final competition from all nine of the previous winners. Competitors can repeat their entry or enter something new.
A brief “award” ceremony will follow. The ceremony will recognize 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.
*****Good luck, Druids!*****
