How to send us your performance video

Remember, you don’t need to share your performance video with us for your choir or singing group to take part.

If you choose to submit your video, it will help us share the impact of Voices for Reconciliation and we would love to include your performance video on our channels throughout National Reconciliation Week.

If you choose to send us your video to us, we suggest you send via WeTransfer to [email protected]

Please note: The deadline for video submissions is 8pm Wednesday 15 May 2024.

We also encourage you to share the file on your social channels at any time during National Reconciliation Week using the tags #NRW2024 #LouderThanEver

Tips for filming

  • You can record on your smart phone, just check your settings to ensure:
    • Video is set to record at 1080p at 60FPS (4K files are too large for sharing)
    • Stereo sound is enabled
  • Film in a well-lit area (natural light is best)
  • Avoid areas with a lot of background noise or echo
  • You can film in either landscape (wide) or portrait (upright) mode. Portrait is more compatible with social media sharing.
  • Watch it back after you have recorded and make sure you are happy with it before sharing your video

Please note: We are unable to provide video editing support. Please send only complete files through for us to consider for inclusion on our social channels or website.

If you have any questions about Voices for Reconciliation or sharing your video, please email [email protected]
