We basically get rwo types of buskers. Those that are competing for prizes, pilule and those that just want to have a bit of fun. We warmly welcome both types. We want everyone to have a great day.
On the entry form, store buskers can nominate whether they are competing for prizes or busking “just for fun”. The serious competitors will probably want to maximise the number of sets they do. Each set can be 30 minutes or 60 minutes long…you choose.
Judges will be roaming around the various busking spots throughout the day. If a busker just performs say, more about one half hour set, a judge may not get much of a look at them. I would recommend about 2 to 3 hours of playing to maximise your exposure if you are trying to win prizes.
There is also the Peoples Choice Award. So the more playing you do, the greater the chance you’ll make more Busker Dollars. The busker with the most Busker Dollars wins the Peoples Choice Award. People will be able to purchase Busker Dollars for $1 each on the day. (Limit of 50 per customer). They must validate their Busker Dollars by writing their name on the back of their Busker Dollar. By the way, all of the Busker Dollars will be placed in a lucky draw. There will be great prizes for the persons named on the Busker Dollars that are drawn.
The judging criteria are basically:
- Skill – how well you know your craft.
- Connection with the audience – communication
- Audience response- the “wow factor”
I hope this is for some help. Please feel free to ask questions. Love to help. By the way, we happy for buskers to sell their CDs and merchandise. And, make lots of tips! Real money. We want all the buskers to have a profitable day.
