Entry Form and Uploads

Entry Form:

To enter the ANOFOB, complete the entry form below and pay for your entry in our Online Shop

ANOFOB will not be accepting submissions of late entries.

Video Recordings:

 

All bands must perform in their band uniform to record their videos.

Each video must be recorded after 1 November 2021, with no soundtrack editing.

Please upload your files below from 20 August until 30 September, 2022.

Each band shall submit their video recordings and a PDF of the score with ALL BARS NUMBERED.

 

Bands should ensure that their videos are of suitable quality for an effective adjudication and online publication. Bands can record their videos in any setting. 

 

We would encourage bands to record their videos at 720p with audio at 256kps in an MP4 format. Whilst many other options are available, these specifications are the recommended quality for our purposes and ease of upload.  

 

Importantly, video recording quality over 1080p is unnecessary for YouTube and makes the files too large to manage. Please see our Video and Audio Quality Tips.

 

Please record each of your music selections as a separate video. DO NOT submit ONE VIDEO that contains all your performances. The responsibility to obtain and pay any synchronisation permissions remains with the Bands.

 

We know from experience that most files should be less than 1 GB. If not, please do not use the upload box and contact ANOFOB Admin for further instructions.

 

All videos performances will be published for bands to see on the  BANSW YouTube Channel.

Uploading Videos and Sheet Music:

 

Submissions of videos and music scores will be via the video and file upload box below.

 

Please refer to the following documents regarding naming and uploading of your video and sheet music files:
