A qualified adjudicator judges the best performances in each section and they are awarded prizes. Each performer is given a helpful written critique on their performance.
Championships are held for qualified performers and Scholarships are also awarded where there are sufficient entries.
Adjudicators have praised the high standard of performances in the Central Coast Eisteddfod over the many years.
A number of well known performers have had their beginnings with the Central Coast Eisteddfod. Names such as Natalie Imbruglia; dancer Joshua Horner, who plays the lead in “Billy Elliot The Musical”; dancer and singer, the late Belinda Emmett; Amy Campbell, who placed second in the 2009 season of Network Ten’s “So You Think You Can Dance; Ben McKenzie, contestant on season 5 of Network Ten’s “Australian Idol”; up-and-coming international opera singer, Lucy Baille; and the list goes on. Others are now teachers of their art, or work in the entertainment and music industries.
