Welcome to the BHA and BHNZ Contest Entry Website

  Forthcoming BHA and BHNZ Regional and/or National Contests which are planned are listed in the table below.  The table will be updated as arrangements are finalised. 

There are no specific qualification requirements for regional contests.  However, for national contests, there may be qualification requirements for some individual contests. 

At both regional and national contests, quartets are not be able to complete their entry until all four members are registered and fully members of BHA or BHNZ as the case may be. Both BHA and BHNZ require all singers in a national contest to be delegates to the convention.  For BHA, this will be checked at the time of contest entry.  For BHNZ, it is checked at a later time.

Chorus entries can be submitted without the chorus list being finalised  However, the entries themselves including at least an indicative chorus list and song list must to be submitted by the closing date. Songs and chorus lists must be finalised no later than 7 days before contest (at both regional and national level).

Please note that if there appears to be disagreement between wording on this website and contest rules, the latter are definitive.  Plesae advise the relevant CA if you consider there is a discrepancy. 

The following is a list of forthcoming contests for which entries are open.  (Future contests for which entries are not yet open are not listed).
