Q&A FOR PERFORMERS

I've signed up already. How do I submit?

We are not yet open for submissions for 2024. They are usually open around May of each year!

You can sign up and become a WMG Member at any time. This will get you 1x free entry into the Games each year.
I've signed up but haven't heard from you. What's going on?

Some mail providers hate us. Check your spam / junk folders. If you haven't received anything, please add our main email address to your whitelist / safe sender list:
info at artsbusinessacademy.com
Who can participate?

Anyone anywhere in the world.

How much does it cost to enter if I miss the deadline or if I want to submit more than one performance?

Everyone gets a free entry at World Monologue Games, but your free entry will expire if it hasn't been used before the main deadline.

If you miss the main deadline, or want to submit multiple entries, you can purchase an entry up which must be used before the late deadline. Entries cost:

  • 1x for $7.95 USD
  • 3x for $18.50 USD
  • 5x for $23.95 USD

You can purchase entries from the Member shop. You will need a (free) Member account to access the shop.
I want to participate. How does it work?

Actors can sign up at any time. Submissions are accepted from around May to July.

During the Qualifiers, participants post their videos online and submit their entry via our site. Our judges pick the best performances in each category to perform in our Regional Finals, with the best of the best heading to the Global Finals.

All registered actors are sent information on how to participate when entries open.

What are the categories?

World Monologue Games has categories based on monologue duration, pro/amateur status and age. The main categories are:

  • Main Professional: 1 - 2½ mins
  • Main Amateur: 1 - 2½ mins
  • Endurance: 5 - 10 mins
  • Sprint: 45 - 60 secs
  • Youth: (12 - 17): 1 - 2½ mins
  • Tigers: (5 - 11)*: 1 - 2½ mins

* Parental permission required for Youth and Tigers categories.

What are the prizes?

WMG is proud to be able to offer prizes to our winners. Our Podium Finishers (top 3) across all 6 categories will share a prize pool of cash.

We also have prizes from our partners, such as memberships to acting services and 1-on-1s with Casting Directors.

Do we have to perform in English?

No. You can perform in any language you like. Non-English speakers do just as well in the competition as English speakers!


Do I need to represent the country I live in or the country I came from?

Up to you. You can choose whichever country you would like to represent. But you can't pick more than one country.
Can I submit an existing video?

No, it needs to be a new recording which has been made after the opening date of the competition. World Monologue Games is about the work you create for the event, not something you filmed in the past.

When are submissions due?

Submission deadlines and season dates can be found on our Timeline page when these dates have been announced.

See our Timeline for more details.
Note that all dates are for Sydney Australia time, with deadlines at 11:59pm .
What level of quality should our videos be?

Do the best you can.

At a minimum, we need to be able to see and hear you clearly. While we won't be judging you based on the video quality, poor footage certainly won't help.

How can I contact you for any other enquiries?

Email our Founder Pete Malicki via email here.


I'm turning 12/18 this year. Should I enter Tigers/Youth/adult categories?

If you are under 12 before the Late Deadline, you must enter the Tigers category.
If you are aged 12-17 before the Late Deadline, you must enter the Youth category.
If you are 18 or over before the Late Deadline, you must enter the adult categories.
What monologue can I perform?

Anything you want. You can write it or find it — up to you.

Note that you must get the author's permission before you submit, unless the work is out of copyright. If you want to use a monologue from a play, TV show, movie etc., you will have to contact the writer for permission – looking up their website or social media will often work. If you can't get permission, you unfortunately will need to find another piece. This is required by copyright law.

Our website has lots of monologues (short and long) you're welcome to use, and we have new material coming out all the time.
