The Online Wildcard is an opportunity for registered Canadian Improv Games student teams from across Canada to perform the CIG events, receive feedback from CIG judges, and qualify for the National Tournament in Ottawa — but instead of performing your scenes live for our judges, you’ll submit a video of your performance online.

HOW DOES OUR TEAM PARTICIPATE IN THIS ONLINE EVENT?
NOW THAT YOU HAVE REGISTERED
ONLINE WILDCARD DEADLINES
A panel of expert judges will evaluate all the videos, and the team with the highest scores will get to compete at the National Tournament! Also, our excellent, cross-country volunteers will provide your team with a written adjudication to help further develop the team’s skills.
The Online Wildcard gives teams an opportunity to practice their events in front of a live audience of their friends and sharpen their skills! Our Online Wildcard staff will be in touch every step of the way to make sure you have a successful submission.
The Online Wildcard will now include a midseason adjudication. Included with your registration fee, you can submit up to two videos of individual scenes (either two of the same event or one of two separate events) to receive a written or verbal adjudication BEFORE you submit your competitive entry by February 7th.
Mid-season submissions may be submitted between December 1 and January 15. Feedback will be sent to you within two weeks of your submission.
Now that you have registered for the Online Wildcard Competition, we will need to know what day you’ll be filming by January 14, 2020! Once we receive this date and time, a Canadian Improv Games staff member will send you a THEME for your event which you will use on your filming date.
We must receive your filmed Online Wildcard video submissions no later than February 7th, 2020.
The video has to be filmed in one continuous take, all events back-to-back, with no editing. For further details and tips about filming your improv, visit http://improv.ca/online-wildcard-submissions/
