According to a release by the organizers, "VocalArt challenge is a daring contest, a platform that brings to life and celebrates the under recognised A-capella genre while discovering, rewarding, and projecting talented artists within its sphere"
The contest recently opened to participation and has witnessed impressive interest among wanna be performers who have been sending in entries. The A-capella challenge encourages team work and will create opportunities for young people to form groups that will sing together throughout their careers.
There are no restrictions in the competition either in terms of type of music, age or linguistic or geographical area. All are welcome.
Organizers also aver that participants can either present original music or existing songs as long as they respect copyright rules. "What matters to us are factors such as vocal technique, teamwork, musicality, originality, stage presence and overall performance," says the company's website regarding judging criteria.
VocalArt aims to "create a distinguished talent display platform that would not only be different from existing offerings but also deliver a distinctive and memorable experience".
