Entrance: 3€ (take some cash with you; performers for free)
1. Poets have 3 minutes (plus a 14-second grace period) to perform an original poem of their own in the 1st round and 2 minutes in the 2nd (if they have passed in the 2nd too). For each 15” more, the poet is penalized with 0,5 points less from the total score.
2. The poet may not use props, costumes or musical instruments.
3. We encourage the poets to perform their poems without reading from a paper or any device. The audience loves it! 😉
4. Each poet should have prepared 2 poems (one 3 min and one 2 min long), in case he or she passes in the second round.
If you want to perform send us a FB message or an email firstname.lastname@example.org. JUDGES are chosen from the AUDIENCE!
1. The judges are selected from the audience. We have 5 judges and the score should be between 0 -10. The higher and lower score are dropped and the middle three are added together, giving the poet a total score of 0-30.
2. Judges should pay attention on both, the poem and the performance, when they give the score to each poet, and without being influenced from the other judges.
TarSlämm is organized by Eesti Lavaluule MTÜ (www.lavaluule.ee). Supported by Vilde ja Vine, Tartu Student Days, No More Amber – Baltic Literary Review and Cultural Endowment of Estonia.
