By submitting this form, I provide my implied consent to the Town of Collingwood to schedule the following appearances, on my behalf, and I will fulfill those obligations as set forth in my Arrival Schedule:
One (1) non-paid performance as part of my commitment as a Participant and my inclusion in the live judging rounds of competition in which I may be participating.

Competition judges' decisions are final, unless otherwise determined by Town of Collingwood management.
A 'do over' of a competition song is only permitted due to a Festival equipment malfunction and/or is at the discretion of the judges.
The Collingwood Elvis Festival does not permit any use of props during any round of competition and I will read the Judging Consideration List (view link) for specific details.
The Collingwood Elvis Festival does not permit ANY medleys or remixes of Elvis songs to be performed in competition.
American Trilogy is NOT considered a medley and may be used as a competition song.
All competition rounds will be performed live with the Festival House band. No background tracks, of any kind, may be used in competition.
There will be an independent judging panel for Professional and Youth competitors, and a separate independent panel for Non-Professional competitors, during each round of competition.
There is absolutely no speaking, discussing, socializing or consulting with a competition judge permitted by me or any member of my family at any time during the Festival. Breach of this condition may result in disciplinary action or disqualification from the competition without refund or recourse from or against the Town of Collingwood.
Failure to read, understand and adhere to the competition rules and regulations will not be accepted as an excuse.
Acceptance, by me, of any paid gig opportunity that may conflict with my judging can result in disqualification without refund or recourse to me.
Only Professional Adult Competitors are eligible to represent the Collingwood Elvis Festival in Memphis, TN for the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest.
If I prequalified for the 2019 UETAC at any other contest location, I agree to forfeit the additional prize money and my position as Collingwood representative to the finalist who has the next overall highest score, while retaining my title as new Collingwood Grand Champion and the prize money that accompanies that title.
Any prize money that I may become entitled to through competition at the Collingwood Elvis Festival shall be paid to me by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) within three (3) business days of the Festival’s conclusion. I must provide my complete banking information to the Festival by no later than June 14, 2019, to ensure prompt and efficient payment, if I have not already done so within the past two years. It is my responsibility to ensure that the banking information is (still) accurate and up to date. Otherwise, I will receive a Town cheque for my winnings and it is my responsibility to negotiate its value and acceptance with my own personal bank. The Town of Collingwood will assume no liability or responsibility whatsoever should my bank fail to negotiate the document and all costs or bank fees will be my own sole responsibility.
Additional Performance Opportunities - Change in 2019 *
I understand that the Festival will set a flat rate for performances, agreeable with a venue, and it is my sole responsibility to secure payment for my services, from the venue, at the conclusion of my performance. The Festival will not assume any liability or responsibility for any payment default from an associated, but independent, venue.
I accept and understand that paid performances are, in no way, a guaranteed option for me, save and except if contracted directly through the Festival for a specific performance at a Festival-controlled venue.
I agree to inform the Town of Collingwood if I am approached with a performance opportunity, by an unregistered venue, in an effort to register the venue so that I can legally perform there and not jeopardize the Town's license agreement with Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc.
I accept and understand that performing at an unregistered venue has legal implications to the Town of Collingwood, under its existing license agreement with Elvis Presley Enterprises, and could result in legal consequences to me personally and to the venue that breached their responsibility with the Collingwood Elvis Festival.
