Video Submission Guidelines

Be sure you've completed the online application form BEFORE sending in your submission. 

FILMING YOUR SUBMISSION

  • Please perform your song in its entirety. Keep in mind that the song must be from a role and musical listed on the Jimmy's Qualifying Roles list, which can be found on the Jimmy Awards website.

  • Don't have a professional camera to record? No problem. Feel free to use your smartphone, as many come equipped with cameras that can produce high quality video. 

  • When filming on your phone, make sure to record in landscape - not portrait. (Turn your phone sideways).

  • Film somewhere indoors that is quiet and without any background noise. If possible, try not to film in a bathroom as there will be an echo.

  • Make sure you're well lit. Filming with a window in front of you will guarantee great natural lighting. 

  • Avoid a messy or busy background. Spaces that are messy or busy can be distracting. A solid colored wall is a perfect backdrop. 

  • Feel free to dress up but make sure to avoid wearing any logos. Clothing that is black or a solid color look great on camera. 

  • Don't hold your camera while you're filming. Make sure to place the camera on a tripod or steady surface that is eye level with yourself. 

  • Test the balance between your accompaniment and your voice so that both can be heard clearly. 

  • Please state your name, school, musical, role, and song choice at the beginning of the video. 

  • Get into the role and have fun, but don't perform a fully choreographed dance. 

  • Watch the video before you hit send. If you don't like how it looks, film again. Send what highlights you the best and have fun!

UPLOADING YOUR SUBMISSION

Upload the video unlisted to a video hosting site (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) or to a cloud storage service (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.). If you do upload to a cloud storage service, set the sharing so that anyone with the link can view the video.
