Please read all the Rules and Regulations (general and specific) very carefully as there are changes made often.

There has been some confusion regarding the awards given at the Festival. There are gold, silver and bronze medals awarded. In Dance, a mark of 85 must be received to get a gold medal. If all the candidates receive a mark of 85 or higher, the highest mark obtained will receive the gold medal. The second highest mark, the silver and the third highest mark, the bronze. The same rule applies in all the other disciplines, except a mark of at least 80 must be obtained in order to receive a gold medal.
