  1. Judging Criteria

6.1 Thematic Appeal. The monologue should detail life in Singapore during the Circuit Breaker in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The theme of “silver linings” should be incorporated that allows audiences to take away some form of positive from the pandemic.

While entrants can take liberties with filming styles, they should ensure that the video is audible and be free from external distractions.

6.3 Engagement. Entrants should experiment and present their monologue with imaginative ways. Judges will look at the originality of the monologue, the depth of characterisation, the ability to engage viewers as well as relevance to the “silver lining” theme.
