Performing Arts Contest

We are excited to introduce our first ever Performing Arts Contest! Get those microphones ready and cameras rolling to show us what you’ve got and why you should be on the Main Stage this year at          Italian Week Ottawa! 

Italian Week Ottawa invites young performers to submit their Italian-inspired performances for a chance to perform on the Main Stage during Grand Finale Weekend. They can choose to perform works by Italian composers, playwrights, choreographers, pieces that an Italian artist made famous, or even works about Italy. 

The winner from each age group will also receive a $100 prize!

Age groups:

  • 10 to 14
  • 15 to 18
  • 19 to 25

    Performances can be:

  • Voice (solo or group)
  • Instrument (solo or group)
  • Dance (solo or group)
  • Poetry (solo)

    The deadline for submissions is Saturday, June 11, 2022, at 11:59 PM. All entries must be submitted via YouTube. Applicants should upload an unlisted video and submit the link on this form. Only one entry per person or group is permitted. 

    Performers MUST be available on Saturday, June 18, 2022, if they are chosen to be part of Grand Finale Weekend.
