Welcome to the BHA and BHNZ Contest Entry Website






  Forthcoming BHA and BHNZ Regional and/or National Contests which are planned are listed in the table below.  The table will be updated as arrangements are finalised. 

There are no specific qualification requirements for regional contests.  However, for national contests, there may be qualification requirements for some individual contests. 

At both regional and national contests, quartets are not be able to complete their entry until all four members are registered and fully members of BHA or BHNZ as the case may be. For 2021, the BHNZ National Contest, all singers must be registered delegates to the convention. There is no delegate requirement for the 2021 BHA National Contest.

Chorus entries can be submitted without the chorus list being finalised  However, the entries themselves including at least an indicative chorus list and song list must to be submitted by the closing date. Songs and chorus lists must be finalised no later than 7 days before contest (at both regional and national level).

The 2021 BHA National Contest is being run virtually with video entries only.  Ensembles need to read SO 7 and the special contest rules for 2021.  Videos need to be uploaded to YouTube as an unlisted video and the link to the video added to the entry - ask if you don't know how to do this.  Contest date is considered the day on which the video is recorded.  The video link may be entered

Plesae note that if there appears to be disagreement between wording on this website and contest rules, the latter are definitive.  Plesae advise the relevant CA if you consider there is a discrepancy. 

Plesae note: At present, there are no contests for which entries are currently open.
