I have registered, but what now?

Registering online or reactivating online is not an instant process. We will manually send you your login details in the following hours. This could also be the next day. Once you receive an email from us, you can use your login details to access the ONLINE ENTRY SYSTEM via our website.

I have logged into the ONLINE ENTRY SYSTEM – but I don’t know what to do!

You will receive a document with your login details with a step-by-step guide to entering. There is also guides on this platform to help you, including tutorial videos. If you still get stuck, please contact any of the Eisteddfod Committee Members listed on the website.

I can’t find DANCE / VISUAL ARTS or any other division I am looking for?

Make sure your select AGE and not GRADE before entering DANCE or VISUAL ARTS, as well as some competitive music sections. If you don’t immediately see the division you are looking for, scroll down. Other options may be listed lower down, depending on your screen.

I have submitted for payment, where do I see the bank details and reference number?

You need to navigate to the “PAYMENTS” section – click on the three white lines on the upper left-hand corner to see all the sections. Click on “PAYMENTS”. All invoices payable will be listed here. IMPORTANT: To open your invoice and view all the details, please CLICK ON the listing itself. It will activate and show darker grey to indicate that this can be activated when you move your cursor over it.

I have paid my entries, but my entries still say “AWAITING PAYMENT”?

We will receive your payment and only once we have processed this, it will be COMPLETED, and are you officially entered. Your entry is captured and completed once the bank statements are reconciled with the ONLINE ENTRY SYSTEM.This process is also NOT INSTANT. Please check in again in a day or so. Please affect payment as soon as possible after submitting your entries to ensure timely processing.

We are looking forward to a memorable 40th year of the Nelspruit Eisteddfod.
