The Online Competition will be adjudicated live on ZOOM video conferencing platform.
For the first round participants will have a choice either to perform live or submit video link.
2nd and 3rd rounds will be adjudicated live.
First, sign up at zoom.us (worldwide) or zoom.cn (if you live in China), then follow the "Setting up Zoom" instructions below to set up audio. The use of external USB microphone is suggested but not required. The GMP representative will assist you in setting up Zoom shortly after receiving the application form and application fee.
Dress code: formal attire
A single camera/camcorder/smartphone/laptop/computer should be set up close enough to capture clear sound, hands, and the body of the applicant without obstruction throughout the entire performance. Far away placed recording device will result in a poor sound quality. Recording with use of multiple cameras will be disqualified.
The camera should not zoom or move during the entire performance/recording.
*Solutions for better video and audio quality:
1. High Speed Internet (connect to the fastest internet service available in your country)
2. HD Webcam
3. USB Microphone
4. Connect laptop or desktop via ethernet cable instead of using WiFi.
*subject to availability
Participants who do not have an access to a desktop or laptop may connect via smartphone or tablet using Zoom app.
Upload your video to one of the online platforms, such as YouTube, Vimeo, YouKu etc., preferably in HD quality, and submit the link to the video in your Application Form.
YouTube users should upload their video file as "UNLISTED" or "Public"
Video recording should be a fair representation of applicant's current performance level. Video recordings do not have to be professional, as long as the sound and image is clear. If you record with smartphone, make sure it is in a landscape position.Test your internet speed HERE (and click GO)
