Important Competition Rules Changes

Special Note: Routines must be submitted on DVD: To enter the IJA Championships, you must submit a DVD of your act (actual costume, music and routine) when you sign up for the competition at the festival on Monday. The video on DVD must be from a single continuous shot of your act, with no editing at all. The top acts will be selected for the stage finals in each category.

Special Note on Music: If you are entering any IJA competition (including the IJA Championships and the Individual Prop Competition) with an act set to music, you must make sure that the IJA has a legal right to use that music both in the show and on videos.
