EIJ Presents: Be Part of the Show!

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

The biggest Scouting and Guiding event in the UK is rapidly approaching and the excitement is building. We would like to give you the chance to show off your talents and perform in front of an audience of 10,000. Think ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ and ‘The X Factor’ – but bigger!

“How can I take part in this amazing experience?” we hear you shouting! Easy – just follow the easy steps below…

  1. Think of your act & rehearse it
  2. Get someone to record your act. Please keep all films to around 2 minutes. Please start your clip by introducing yourselves, telling us which Scout or Guide group you belong to and which sub camp you are part of.
  3. Upload it to YouTube. A ‘how to’ guide can be found by following this link https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/57407?hl=en-GB
  4. Set it to Private settings – again, how to do this can be found here https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/157177?hl=en-GB and shared with us at auditions@eij2016.org.uk
  5. Fill in the form on the website at /audition. Make sure you have permission from all those in the video and your parent/carer, if you are under the age of 18.
  6. We will review all the audition tapes and contact you in plenty of time to get the final practices in.
  7. At the Jamboree you will compete at your subcamp heats between Sunday and Thursday.
  8. All successful subcamp winners will compete on the last day in the EIJ Presents final in front of an appreciative audience of up to 10,000!
  9. We look forward to hearing and seeing your talents soon.

Please make sure all auditions are uploaded by 5.00pm on Thursday 21st July.

Good luck and we look forward to seeing what talent we have coming to EIJ this year.
