                                                         WFA COMPETITOR CODE OF CONDUCT
As a competitor in any WFA Grand Slam competition you are required to behave with respect and decorum throughout the entirety of the competition.
Sponsors pay a lot of money to give us the opportunity to have these great events all over the world, so let’s treat them with respect so that they will want
to repeat the competition the next year

Dress Code
During the competition you are required to dress accordingly to what is expected of you. In some cases you will have to wear the t-shirt provided by the
sponsor on stage. In this case, make sure that it is clean and ironed and not all messy when on go on stage with it. If you require another t-shirt ask the
organising staff to provide you with one
You should treat the stage like you would any bar. So no open toe shoes, like flip flops or sandals, but trainers or shoes is fine.
You are NOT allowed to wear shorts on stage. Even if it is an outside competition in the sun They look messy and unprofessional
Please make sure your trousers are clean and tidy and not covered in rips and tears.
In some cases you may want to wear a costume. This is fine, but nothing vulgar.
No nudity of any kind is allowed during your performance.
If the organiser, judge or sponsors are not happy with the way you have presented yourself you will be asked to change, incur a major deduction or get
disqualified from the competition.

Competitions can be stressful times and everyone wants to do their best, but remember everyone is in the same boat so remember to treat everyone with
The competition stafs are there to help you at the competition. If you are rude or arrogant towards them, you may face disqualification
Any rudeness or disrespect towards other competitors can face disqualification. This can be at anytime throughout the competition, in the practice area,
on stage or whatever.
Try and help out other competitors whenever you can. It is always recommended to bring your own equipment, so if you are not willing to lend that out,
explain politely to your fellow competitor to ask the organisational staff to help them out
The judges have a difficult decision and are always willing to answer your questions after a competition, but any rudeness or disrespect towards them will
face disqualification in the next Grand Slam competition

This is a big moment for everyone, whether it is announcing the finalists or the overall winners. Everyone is nervous and everyone wants to win. If you are
not happy with your placement, DO NOT walk off stage in a huff. Collect your prize and wait for the all clear to get off the stage once all announcements
are done. Failure to do so can result in disqualification or being banned from the next grand slam comp.
When it comes to announcements please wear either the competition t-shirt or your sponsor or representation’s attire. We do not want to see you in
your shirt ready for a night out.

Bottles to be used
As we have mentioned before the sponsor pay a lot of money to put on these competitions so they want to see their bottles used at competitions as much
as possible. Anyone thought to be blatantly disregarding the sponsors bottles will be disqualified from the comp or incur a major deduction

This will always be down to the organiser as to when they want your music. Please make sure it is clearly labelled and is only on ONE CD!

After the competition
Once the competition is over you have the chance to chat with the judges and discuss your scores on how you can improve for the next comp.
Any discrepancies’ in the scores should be put in writing to the World Flair Association, sent to info@worldflairassociation.com by the individual who is not
The World Flair Association will try and solve any problems with scores or results in any way they can.

Any competitor not respecting the rules of the competition, the judges, fellow competitors or the sponsors can face disqualification from the competition
or be banned from the next Grand Slam competition.
