This year’s Oratory Festival starts in
We’re so excited to meet you!
Thanks for registering for this year’s inaugural International Oratory Festival. We can’t wait to meet you in your first session.
If you missed our registration deadline of 17 April and can’t wait until 2023 to join us, do drop us an email at email@example.com and we’ll see if we can squeeze you in!
You can check out the key requirements for each of the categories you’ve entered if you download our 2022 syllabus, or check out the following pages:
We’re in the process of contacting everyone about the times of your sessions. We’ll make sure your session is scheduled at a sensible time for where you are in the world. If you’ve got any worries or questions, we’re here to help, and you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prepare to speak
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be uploading a range of resources to help you prepare for your categories. Check them out at the following links:
On the day
On the day, you’ll be welcomed to our Zoom by your friendly judge. You can be joined by up to two audience members*. During the session, you’ll deliver your oratory, and you’ll also hear other people speak**. The judges will then give useful and positive spoken feedback.
Prizes and certificates
Each session will have its own winner and the overall category will have gold, silver and bronze awards. We’ll also award our Jubilee Trophy for the ‘Best in Festival’.
At the end of the festival, we’ll let you know the overall winners, and send you written feedback to help you grow as an orator. You will also receive a beautiful digital certificate, to recognise your achivement.
* You should be the only person on your screen. But we’ll also provide you with a second link for your audience members.
** You will not necessarily see every candidate in your category as there may be multiple sessions.
