4. Jury evaluation system, awards, sponsors
4.1 Grading system of the competitive part
The competitive part has a qualifying rather than competitive evaluation principle. Each participant receives a diploma indicating the degree employed based on the average ball scored.
All participants will be evaluated based on their age and creative category. They are evaluated: the technique of performance, the complexity of the selected work, an individual approach to the interpretation of the work, the manner of performance and personal style.
For each creative category, jury members rate 100 points (the average score of each performance of all jury members is calculated).
* In the case of several performances in the same category, the work that received the highest rating is selected to summarize the results.
Depending on the score received, the following degrees and prizes will be awarded to all participants:
100 points - GRAN PRIZE/diploma + commemorative sign
99-90 points - Laureate of 1 degree/diploma + memorial sign
89-80 points - Laureate of 2 degrees/diploma
79-70 points - Laureate of 3 degrees/diploma
less than 70 points - Participant/Diploma
* The organizers have nothing to do with the work of the jury members and cannot influence their decision. The decision of the panel of judges is not subject to discussion. The results of the received assessments will be published on the www.festivalcontest.net website in the "reports" section of the end of the competition.
* Among all participants and groups, regardless of the score scored by the organizers of the competition, the brightest numbers for performing at the final concert of the competition will be selected (the choice of performances does not depend on the panel of judges, on the score scored, but only on the colorfulness of the number). The concert will take place only if the authorities have special permission during the pandemic.
The competitive part of the Festival will be held in private, in the form of passing entrance exams.
