BlueScope WIN Wollongong Eisteddfod

What's New?

Attention all prospective instrumentalists. After consultation with the Wollongong CON we've just added two new sections to our event schedule. They sections 281 and 282 being "Other Instruments" (i.e. excluding wind and strings). 281 is 12 years and under and 282 is 13 years and over. Let's see what sort of variety of other instruments we can get.

Rules for Eisteddfodau relating to copyright and music licensing changed this year. Entrants must pay a compulsory copyright fee for each section entered and this is passed on to the copyright licencing agencies.

Electronic lodgement of Speech & Drama texts and Dance and Vocals backing tracks is MANDATORY in 2017. Please note that NO CDs will be accepted at the 2017 Eisteddfod.
