Virtual Salem & Gloucester County Teen Arts Festival


Virtual Adjudication: Entries Due April 18, 2022


Appel Farm is also offering Virtual Adjudication. Please read the submission guidelines and best practices below for next steps.

How to prepare your Virtual Entry

  • Log in to the virtual adjudication site (link will be shared once your school as registered).
  • Review the Adjudication Rubric for the Art Form for which you will be submitting your entry. This will give you a stronger understanding of what the Adjudicators will be considering when reviewing submissions.
  • Write, Create, or Rehearse your Virtual Entry.
  • Finalize, Record, and Save your Virtual Entry as a Digital File, for example:
    • Performances (.MP4/.MOV), Visual Arts (.JPG) and/or Writings (.PDF)
    • OR, Submit your performance via Youtube link.  Be sure to mark your videos “UNLISTED” on Youtube so that we can see them, but no one else can.  Use the same labeling criteria above for naming your Youtube entry.
