  • Most Improved Quartet:  Awarded to the quartet showing the "greatest improvement" between  2 consecutive quartet contest cycles.

You may find these tips will help you to successfully create and submit an entry:

  • When submitting your entry, you will be asked various questions about the members of your quartet - I strongly recommend that you make a note of their personal details before starting, including:  Membership No.(if they have one); DoB (it will then automatically work out if you are eligible to enter Youth/Seniors contest); name(s) of any other Quartet each member may be competing with; voice part and any disabilities that could affect the amount of time they need to be allocated in the process.
  • Go to the "Create a new account" section and enter the email address you want to use for your Quartet entry, you will then be sent a 6 figure PIN number (check spam/bin if it doesn’t arrive immediately).  
  • You should now open  your account by inserting your email address and Password (the PIN number you have just received) to submit the information required.
  • Choose the event you wish to enter (QuartetCon 2022) and tick all the categories you’re entering (eg. Senior and National; Youth only; Youth and National) 
  • When you have given your consent to the declaration you can go to the My Quartet/My Entries sections.  Please add the applicable details (name, voice part DOB, membership Season Pass no.) for each member of your Quartet
  • If you don’t have any of the information asked for (eg. Contest Pass No.; Song titles etc) you will be able to re-enter your account to update it any time by logging back into your account and selecting the section you need to update.

If you have followed this advice and still have problems entering your Quartet, please contact me (Yvonne Hughes) at [email protected]
