a.13 Video Recording, Requirements. Music
The recording will have to be continous and not edited, from start of the routine till its end.  You are alllowed to add a music to your footages. we offer a choice of music of different styles free of royalties HERE. Or you can choose your own, knowing though that if its not royalties free, it will be most likely muted by most social medias platforms.

a.14 Evaluation System

The Evalution will happen in 3 stages. 

1st stage: Competitors themselves (PEERS) view the choreographies of the contest they entered and send to Sky on Stage their favourite ranking excluding their own team. Which choreography they liked the most, second, third and so on. Sky on Stage, by giving a fix numerical value to first, second, third choice, will determine the competitors’ overall teams ranking.
Each of the contests choreography will also receive a popularity vote thoruhg the video contest platform.

2nd stage: The 20  top favourite routines (if there are more then 20 Teams 🙂) will then be  viewed by the Expert Invited evaluators, the E-Panel.
Similar to first step, they will review the choreorgaphies and send Sky on Stage their personal ranking. 

3rd stage: The 10 best video choreographies per each game, as decided by the E-Panel, will then be reviewed also by the professional Artists and/or Athltes, the A-Panel, to determine the overall winners

Both panels, the E-Panel and the A-Panel, are evaluating the choreographies in their overall appeal, creativity, emotional power, rythm, flow,  ect. Basically they will point out the choreorgaphies they liked the most based on their personal values.

a.15 Composition and Role of the Technical Commitee (TC-Panel)
Technical Committee consist of members chosen among eligible and experienced skydivers/freeflyers/freestylers/ wingsuiters/ skysurfers and in the case of the indoor games, flyers with strong background in tunnel flying.
Their role is only to check general safety, act as a point of reference for questions and tips concerning safety issues.

a.17 Panels of Evaluators Composition
Choreographies will be evaluated by three distinct panels 

1) The PEERS, fellow contestants
2) The Expert Panel (E-Panel) 
This Panel consists of the invited Experts in the game they are evaluating. 
2) The Artist/Athletes Panel (A-Panel)
This Panel consists of professionals Athletes and/or Artists.
Example: musician, photographer, film editor, designer, dancer, choreorgrapher, skier, paraglider, snowborader, mountain biker, gymnast.. etc etc…. the more variegated the better. 

NOTE: the reason of having an outside of the sport Panel is so to keep the perspective of the non-skydiving viewers. Of course, the A-Panel may not truly evaluate difficulty and technicality of the jump, though they will offer a different perspective eye on the overall of the choreography movements and flow. They are also giving us an idea, of what the general public truly perceive and appreciate.
