Festival Entry Fees and Cut-Off Dates

We have an EARLY BIRD entry rate and a GENERAL ENTRY rate.

Since 2016 the ASBOF has implemented a sliding scale of entry fees for the EARLYBIRD RATE, calculated on the proportion of time an ensemble has allocated to perform (i.e. the longer the performance time, the higher the entry fee). All General Entry rates are the same.

Adjudcation Only and Adjudication Plus Trophy option

From 2021 all ensembles will have the oportunity to enter as eligible for an adjudication only or for an adjudication plus a trophy. Ensembles choosing the adjudication plus trophy option will incur an addition charge for the trophy and postage if entering an online event.

All prices are inclusive of GST.
