The current competition period ends on February 29, 2020. Entries may be sent any time up to the deadline. All entries received after the deadline will automatically be entered into the following competition. Upcoming competition deadlines are: April 30, 2020 and June 30, 2020. Additional competitions may be added if the number of entries provides for it.
How it works
Once your entry is received, it is sent to selected judges located throughout the world. We try to pair up genre types with judge preference (for example, a judge who is a tap expert will be sent tap entries, etc.). They score and then return the score sheets to Starz. Judges only receive the name of the entry. They do not receive entrant names, names of studios or school names. After they score, they return the score sheets to Starz home office. We then process them and send the results to the entrant, usually within 24-48 hours. Time could be longer around entry deadlines.
You may choose to receive awards (medals, plaques, etc.) or choose not to. You'll indicate that on your entry form, which you can find at the bottom of this page.
At the end of each competition period, all entries received during the competition period are tabulated and ranked in order of score. Overall awards will then be posted to our website, and announced on social media. Amount of awards given will be dependent on the number of entries received during the competiton period.
Awards will be custom ordered after the competition deadline and mailed out to entrants once received.
