Rules of participation


For 2022, the Sections 5 to 8 of the Rules of competition have been suspended and replaced by the Rules of participation. These can be consulted here.

Sections 1 to 4 concern the Steering Committee and the selection of groups. These can be consulted under FEATS rules on the FEATS website.

Original Scripts: Clause 5B.8 of the rules defines an ‘original script’ in terms of the competition and limits the number per year to 4. For 2022, this rule has been simplified, allowing any script that has not been published (either in hardcopy or digital form) and for which no payment has been made or is envisaged. The number of original scripts is still limited to 4.
