TEEN TALENT 2018
Greetings all from Planet Rock!
We are so very excited to have you join us for this year’s Youth Quake! If you have anyone interested in our Teen Talent Program, please review the following information.
The Registration/Audition Process
All Contestant Entries MUST Be Registered in our Youth Conference. If not, you are not eligible to participate.
Each contestant must audition and be selected to participate in the teen talent program. To audition, contestants must submit a short video of themselves along with their completed entry form. This video should include your name, age, home church (city & state), an introduction of your particular talent, how long you've been using this talent, and a short clip of you performing your actual talent. THE AUDITION does not have to be the song/composition that will be performed during the showcase. Please be sure that this video is clear (audibly and visually).
All entries must be submitted by June 15th. On June 20th, Teen Talent Contestants will be notified of their participation. If you are selected, please plan to follow the following guidelines and rules for participating.
All submissions should be made at www.planetrockyouth.com
All performers will be judged on neatness and appearance. Performers should be neat and presentable.
Males may dress casual. Jeans may NOT sag. No shorts, tank tops, flip flops or cut-offs are allowed.
Females may dress casual. Jeans may not sag. No shorts, tank tops, halter tops, sleeveless shirts, tights (unless dancing), flip flops or revealing clothing will be allowed. Dresses, skirts, and slits may NOT be above the knee.
Dancers are to dress neatly and appropriately. If leotards are worn, they must have appropriate neckline (no cleavage) and legs must be covered. Bare feet and tights are acceptable. Bare legs will NOT be permitted.
We reserve the right to disqualify and/or exclude, in our sole and absolute discretion, any individual from any of the auditions for any reason, including without limitation, violation of any portion of the rules. Being accepted ensures that you will perform in the Teen Talent competition but does not ensure anything further.
All performers will have a 5 minute (or less) time limit. If you exceed this time limit you will be disqualified so please select your material accordingly!!!
Any provocative music, dancing, or dress code violation will also result in disqualification.

You will be given a selected MP3 file in which you will create your own music around it as you wish. You may use whatever program or software you are familiar with. You must submit this along with your audition tape and submission form. You will be judge on production quality, creativity and skill.
You will create your own live mix from a pool of 10 selected various song choices. Your mix will need to be from these specific songs and nothing more so please exercise your creativity. Each DJ will be given the same selections to choose from and whoever has the tightest "live" mix will win. You may organize your songs ahead of time but your actual mix for the competition will be "live" in front of the judges and audience. You will have at least one judge observing from behind you to ensure that your mix was not pre-made.
Please bring your own equipment (Tables, computer, headphones, and music). If you are not able to bring your own, we will have a pair of Technic CDJ's with a Numark Controller as well as a set of Numark Ns6's. You may choose whichever best suites your needs. However, if you choose to use the Numark Ns6, you will need your own laptop and software.
