This competition is entirely comprised of video entries posted at www.youtube.com. We will not accept entries in any other manner or media for the Hal Leonard Vocal Competition.

OFFICIAL RULES AND GUIDELINES


In the spirit of fairness to all entries, these rules must be followed explicitly, without exception.

The rules and guidelines apply to both categories, Art Song and Musical Theatre.

  1. Entrants must be legal residents of the United States and its territories, or legal residents of Canada.
  2. Deadline for entry: Midnight on February 1, 2013
  3. Designated winners will be asked to provide proof of age before the dispensation of prizes.
  4. Winners will be announced to entrants via email and on www.halleonard.com/vocal by May 1, 2013.
  5. An entrant may only win a first place cash prize once per age division within a category (art song or musical theatre). Second Place, Third Place and Honorable Mentions are free to re-enter in the same age division.
  6. In the interest of fairness, employees of Hal Leonard Corporation, Hal Leonard published composers, editors, arrangers or authors, or members of their immediate families, or their students, are not allowed to enter the Hal Leonard Vocal Competition.
  7. Each entry must be via video posted at www.youtube.com, with the link provided on the entry form. For information on posting videos we recommend exploring the Help section found on the YouTube homepage.
  8. Accompanists are forbidden to use photocopies. Pianists accompanying singers must play from publications. A page turner may be needed. Entries with visible photocopies will be automatically disqualified. Photocopying music is illegal.
  9. While we urge you to take care to create the best quality entry possible, both regarding audio and video, it need not be professional level production values. The performance recorded for the video entry must be acoustic and not amplified. The only microphone(s) involved should be for recording. ( For general tips, we recommend clicking on Help on the YouTube homepage, then seeking further information at the General Help Center.) We urge you to view the 2011 and 2012 winners (www.halleonard.com/vocalcomp) to get a sense of an acceptable video and audio quality standard. You should consider recording your video in an acoustically flattering room. Experiment with microphone and camera placement for best results.
  10. Your YouTube video posting must be titled as follows: HL Vocal Your Name. For instance: HL Vocal Mary Smith.

    Note that there is a space after HL and before Vocal. Note that HL is capitalized. After the word Vocal, leave one space before your first name, and one space before your last name. Note that there are not underlines or underscores where spaces occur. When video titling instructions are not followed, entries can be difficult to find. Many people did not follow the video titling instructions in the past. If your entry strays from these titling instructions, you risk being disqualified.

  11. In the official entry form, you will be providing the link with the web address of your video posting. Hal Leonard will also be copying your posting into the Hal Leonard Vocal Channel.
  12. Please note that you must select "Public" in the Privacy settings found under the broadcasting and Sharing Options section when uploading your video file to YouTube. If you select "Unlisted" or "Private" your submission will be invalid. Please only enter the Hal Leonard Vocal Competition if you are comfortable posting a public video on YouTube.
  13. The video must clearly show your face. A frozen camera position throughout, showing your face and most of your body, is perfectly acceptable, even preferable.
  14. Singers are required to sing their selections from memory on the competition video entries. If a singer's performance is not memorized, the entry will be disqualified.
  15. We prefer you to sing with a live pianist in your video entry, although we will accept entries performed with sanctioned recorded accompaniments packaged with or companion to the required publications. (Many entries using our official recorded accompaniments have been quite good.) We will not accept unaccompanied entries.
  16. The video should be in the spirit of a recital or audition. It may be shot in a home, school, church, synagogue, recital hall, or some other appropriate location, with or without an audience. We encourage you to dress appropriately, as you would for a recital or an audition.
  17. You are required to introduce yourself and your selections on the video entry. The spoken portion of the video entry must be limited to the following:

    FOR THE ART SONG COMPETITION
    Your name
    The composer and title of your selection (prior to each song).

    FOR THE MUSICAL THEATRE COMPETITION
    Your name
    The title of the song
    The show the song is from

    Do not say anything more in your video entry to the Hal Leonard Vocal Competition. Those departing from this stated direction may be disqualified.

    For the Art Song Competition, a typical model of spoken introduction before the first selection is:

    I am __________________. I will sing "I'll sail upon the Dog Star" by Henry Purcell.

    Before the second selection, simply introduce the song by stating the song title and the composer. For example:

    "Per la gloria d'adorarvi" by Giovanni Bononcini

    Take very special care to pronounce the title of your song and the composer's name correctly.

    For the Musical Theatre Competition, a typical model of spoken introduction before the first selection is:

    I am __________________. I will sing "If I Were a Bell" from Guys and Dolls.

    Before the second selection, simply introduce the song by stating the song title and the show the song is from:

    "Bride's Lament" from The Drowsy Chaperone

  18. Video editing during a song is not allowed. The only editing allowed in the audition video is the insertion of an introduction, if necessary, and the editing together of two required songs.
  19. Each singer should submit both required songs within one video entry.
  20. A singer is allowed to enter both the Art Song and Musical Theatre Competitions.
  21. There is no fee required for entry in the Hal Leonard Vocal Competition.

Most issues are thoroughly addressed in this information. We repeat that the official rules must be followed explicitly, without exception. The repertoire requirements must be strictly followed. Questions may be directed to vocal@halleonard.com.
