Special Cash Prizes.
NOTE: A previous winner of a Vocal Scholarship may not re-enter the SAME event until a time of 2 years will have elapsed. i.e. a winner in 2021 may re-enter the event in 2023, but not a winner in 2022.
Where heats need to be held, finalists will be selected on the highest marks awarded over ALL heats, not necessarily the placegetters in each heat.
