Submission Guidelines

  • All competition entries must be submitted as a video. Submissions do not need to be professional quality. Cell phone camera or similar recording devices are acceptable and encouraged.
  • Upload competition videos to YouTube or Vimeo as an Unlisted video. Links to videos will be shared on the registration form. 
  • Stand an appropriate distance from the recording device so adjudicators can see and hear you clearly.
  • Record three videos:
    • Video 1: State your name, age, and competition level.
    • Video 2: Piece #1
    • Video 3: Piece #2
  • Each piece should be recorded separately. Each video should be one continuous, unedited performance.
  • Members of the Colorado Flute Association Board of Directors will watch the videos and provide comments for each competitor. (Those Board members who have students competing will not serve as an adjudicator for that level)
