Video Submission Guidelines

Be sure you've completed the online application form BEFORE sending in 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!


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.

  • Subject should read "Submission - [Your Name]"

    • Your name, school, musical, role, and song​
