Performing artists will submit their performance samples via YouTube. Writers, studio artists and digital artists will submit folders of their work via email. Performing artists will submit a video following specific guidelines. The second part of the audition includes a Skype, Teams, or ZOOM interview during which they may be asked to do some impromptu performing or, for musicians, a sight reading. Students will be contacted by the teacher to set up a time for the interview. Writers and artists shall have the files emailed to the instructor and have a copy on their own desktops so that specific work can be discussed.
Do not be nervous about this. It would be much more difficult for people in their fifties to make the leap, but for students your age, it should be a baby step.
Do not contact the judge in your art except for submitting the portfolio or video. You need to review the directions for your art form; then, if you still have questions, direct them to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, the teacher will contact you to set up the Skype/Teams/Zoom/ interview.
