Participants must embed two selections in their competition application which is housed under their Account Manager:My Applications (Find the application for the CS Vocal Competitions and edit the application).
Within your competition application you will embed your 2 media files (either two video, two audio, or one of each) from YouTube, Facebook, Sound Cloud or other online video or audio services. DO NOT SIMPLY PASTE THE URL of your YouTube or other media clip.
For example, via YouTube, below your video there is the option to "Share". After you select that it will allow you to selection the option to Embed. Copy the code provided and paste it into your application in the provided Embed Code field. We have provided links to detailed instructions for YouTube or Sound Cloud.
IMPORTANT: You need to make sure your video or audio clips are made public on YouTube or SoundCloud so they can be shared.
