The Competition’s preferred video file specification/format is MP4:

You can use external microphones, but the audio must be of the filmed performance and it must synch and match with the video otherwise we will not be able to verify it as a live recording.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that their recordings (especially the sound) are of high quality. The Competition will not accept and is not responsible for any corrupted or incomplete files or recordings of insufficient quality and application fees will not be refunded. Please review the Competition’s Rules and Regulations and FAQs.
