Contestants video rating system:
Each jury member will rate each video from 5 to 10 points. Depending on the number of points scored, winners will be determined: owners of 1, 2, 3 places, as well as two Grand Prix (in amateur and professional groups).
All ratings of each jury member will be placed in the graph next to each participant and will be visible to everyone.
After registration is completed (November 1, 2019), a page will be created on this site where you can see all the participants in the competition. After accepting the video recordings of all participants (December 1), 2019, each participant will create a separate page where there will be a photo of the participant, his brief biography and video recording of his performance. Later on the page of each participant, the points that he scored will be visible (separately the assessment of each jury member and the total amount of points).
You can read about the jury here. Jury members (or their students) can also take part in the competition, but they do not have the right to evaluate themselves or their students. In this case, the estimates of the 9 remaining members of the jury are summarized, and then 1/9 of the amount is added. Example 1: the sum of 9 ratings is 80 points. 80: 9 = 8.89; i.e., the total amount of points will be equal to 80 + 8.89 = 88.89 Example 2: all members of the jury set masculine ratings, and the amount is 90 points. 90: 9 = 10; 90 + 10 = 100 points)
All money received for entry fees will be divided between the two Grand Prix. One Grand Prix in amateur and one Grand Prix in professional groups. The list of participants will appear after November 1 on this site. The volume of cash prizes will be equal to the number of participants * 10 euros (the amount of the entry fee)
Holders of 1, 2, 3 places will receive diplomas, my video courses (2 of any courses to choose each) and special prizes — souvenirs!
