Regarding Location:
The early stages of the project the performance times will be from 6pm to 10pm GMT+10 (Hobart Australia) on Fridays and Saturdays.  Asians would perform in the afternoon or evening.  Africans would perform in the morning.  This time slot is difficult for people in South America.  If successful, the project will expand into other locations and overcome time zone problems.

Regarding Internet:
Uploading for live video feed with reliable quality is expected to be the most difficult obstacle.  Most communities will have trouble.  Fortunately, this is a condition that is expected to improve rapidly over the next few years.

Regarding Referee Organisation:
You should ask a reputable NGO, charity or similar organisation to authenticate your situation.  If you don’t have this you will need to provide best evidence that you are in a disadvantaged situation.  The Referee Organisation may be best suited to apply on your behalf.

Please apply anyway.  We will look for new ways to help you onto the platform.
