Overview

The Tar Valon’s Got Talent program will be a friendly competition between junior member participants based on the reality TV structure of eliminating one or more contestants each week.

Contestants will compete to stay in the competition through a series of creative tasks designed to challenge them while demonstrating their creativity.

For the purposes of Tar Valon’s Got Talent one week will last ten days and a new event will begin every two weeks. Ten days will allow all contestants an opportunity to compete and then allow a few days for judges to confer, vote, and decide winners, and who will be eliminated.

Format

The general selection process of the show will begins with auditions. This round is held a the first week of the competition, during which the auditioner will submit their entry. This entry will be judged though an anonymous poll. The top six from each of these two threads will be competing beginning in week 1.

Following this, 5 competitions will take place. Each competition will be organized by one of the Captains or Mistresses.

Week 1 - Captain of Soldiers
Week 2 - Mistress of Novices
Week 3 - Captain of Recruits
Week 4 - Mistress of Accepted

The final week of the competition will have the Director of Membership as the guest judge (along with 2 Surprise Guest Judges). Each week will be judged by the Captains and Mistresses along with one Guest Judge. Each week will have a theme for the competition.

Each competition will have a 10 day entry period followed by a 4 Day Judging period.

Audition Round
Junior members will submit a “traveling gnome’ style photograph, i.e.: placing the TarValon.Net logo somewhere and taking a picture. This can be done digitally (photoshop) or by printing out the logo, cutting it out, and taking a photo.

Photos will be submitted using the google form and their origin masked by being uploaded to a common photobucket (or similar) account. Photos will then be shared to the TarValon.Net community as a whole for voting in two threads; one thread for novices and accepted, one for recruits and soldiers. The top six from each of these two threads will be competing beginning in week 1.

The entry form says I need permission to access it when I click on the link. Is that supposed to happen? Or, does Google Drive just secretly hate me? :look:

I added an addendum, because I don't see why citizens who are about to go before the hall to enter the tower shouldn't be allowed into the competition.
