Things to know before filling out your application form

We’ve created this handy checklist of things you’ll need in order to complete your online application for Lockdown Legends.

Unfortunately you can’t save your application and come back to it later, so this checklist will help you to prepare!

  • You’ll need a teacher, parent or guardian over 18 years old to submit the application on the group’s behalf

  • Provide names, instruments and schools of each person in your group

  • Provide information about the piece you’re playing including the title, composer and duration. Please include movement/s where appropriate.

  • Include a URL link to your performance footage and pdf files (more info below)

How to send us your files

We ask that applicants upload all of their videos and accompanying files to either a file sharing solution of your choice and provide us with the URL link. 

You will need to upload the following files and share copy the URL to put in your application:

  • Your performance video (max 15 minutes) in a .mp4 or .mov video format (videos files from your iPhone are in .mov)

  • Your introduction video (mx XX minutes)  in a .mp4 or .mov video format

  • A scanned copy of your sheet music

  • A scanned copy of your release forms/parental permission (TBC)

It is your responsibility to ensure that all of the files are uploaded onto a file sharing platform and that the files are viewable for the judges and are not restricted or on private permissions for your entry to be eligible. 

We recommend the following easy to use file sharing websites:
