VTBF’s New England Themed Burlesque Competition Goes Virtual for 2021

Here’s how it works.

 

Those who want to compete:

Come up with a burlesque act that has a New England theme to it.  Pop Culture, History, Politics, Local Culture, Food, Religion, Etc Etc… As long as it’s got a tie to New England and is performed within the genre of burlesque, the act qualifies.  

 

Traditionally, video quality hasn't mattered when submitting to the VTBF, but in this case… video matters... so do your best to think about lighting, background, location and audio when recording your act.  Consider creating a team to help produce your video.  Don’t let this intimidate you, have fun with it!

    

Up to 12 submissions will be incorporated into the Vermont Burlesque Festival’s 2021 Virtual Event.  VTBF Producers will choose what they feel are the top 12 submissions.  If selected, your entire act will become public and it will become part of the VTBF2021 Virtual Event.  Keeping in line with our traditional way of judging the winner of this competition, the audience decides via on-line voting/polling.  Winner will be revealed during the VTBF2021 Virtual Event.

 

What the winner receives:

 

• An invitation to defend their title at succeeding festival.  

• Travel stipend of $200 for the succeeding festival. 

• 1 Night of Lodging during for the succeeding festival.

• Opportunity to perform your act on stage during the VTBF's Main Event (as long as there are no Covid restrictions) during the current year.

• Opportunity to perform your act as an encore during the competition event of the succeeding year. 

• Prize Pack from our Sponsors (Specifics TBA)

    

 

So here’s how it works. 

 

• Shoot video of your act. Editing is allowed.  Get as creative as you wish. 

• Include in your video (as an introduction, prior to your performance) an explanation of why your act is New England themed.  

• Send application fee

• Fill out VTBF competition application.
