RULES AND REGULATIONS

ELIGIBILITY

  • The participating corporates have to be registered companies.
  • Since it is an Inter-Corporate Meet, participants can only represent a company and not be individuals.
  • Every participating company has to endorse the list of participants with their identities duly proved.
  • Participants may have to prove their IDs at the time of participation, if needed.
  • Age/position no bar.
  • Companies can choose to participate in any or all categories, based on their choice and talent availability.

CLASSICAL - SOLO

  • Classical category is only a vocal competition.
  • There are 3 levels in this category - Prelims, Semifinals and Finals.
  • What you perform is absolutely your choice. But, for your information, judges of previous years have appreciated only traditional and purest form of classical compositions.
    E.g. Kritis, kirthanas, abhangs etc.
  • Judges might ask you to sing any part of the composition you render. For example, pallavi or anupallavi or charanam or swaram or just the ragam. Last year, the judges actually grilled the contestants to test their ability with ragam and kalpana swaras.
  • Participants please bring your own sruti boxes for matter of convenience of setting. A professional mridangam accompanist will be provided. A tabla accompanist for Hindustani performers can be provided on prior request.

CLASSICAL - SOLO (Prelims)

  • In Prelims, you will be given 3 minutes to perform.
  • 6 Male + 6 Female Semifinalists will be selected.

  • The choice of song does not matter till Prelims. But from Quarterfinals, the song has to be approved by BIGDEAL, to avoid repetition by any other contestant.
  • There will be a professional orchestra (from Quarterfinals) to provide the basic backup. There will be no interludes played. After pallavi, the rhythm will continue and you can start the charanam of the song at your own convenience, because the marks are only for your singing and the duration shall be well-utilised to prove yourself.
  • If you want to bring your own accompaniment, you are free to do so. Please avoid a big orchestra, which may drown your singing and forfeit your merit.
  • The singers should be employee of the company they are representing. Nevertheless, the accompanists can be professionals or even from other companies. (This rule is specific to this category alone)
  • You are free to sing unaccompanied.
  • Karaoke tracks/programmed music is allowed in solo category (from Quarterfinals).

  • The songs you will be performing should have been approved by BIGDEAL. Your list of songs has to be provided at the time of registration. Songs will be approved on first come first serve basis. No song shall be repeated by any contestant - solo/team.
  • Musical instruments and/or any other additional gadget required for their performance shall be brought by the teams themselves. If in case, majority of the participating teams need some instrument/equipment, it shall be organized.
  • All contestants please wear tasteful and colourful outfits. It would look good if your team comes with a uniform, stylish and trendy to reflect the gloss of a corporate show.
  • In the previous edition, there were teams which had similar uniforms, which made it difficult for the audience/viewers to recognize teams. If you like to stick on to the same colour, atleast bear the logos/name of your company big in size for recognition.
  • While you enter this event arena, please carry yourself with dignity and poise, since you are not just a contestant but the face of the organisation you are working for.
  • You can bring your family and friends to the shoot with the official passes.
  • We would not like to say “Judges' decision is final and binding” 'cos it's needless to say it. Please respect the verdict even if it is not in your favour. You have the right to differ, though.
  • We will be shooting the performances live, so delays might happen. Please come prepared for overnight performance on the days of the competition. We cannot guarantee closing time for any of the rounds.
