The appeal must have all reasons with proof as to why it is not a valid nomination (ie: Child put in wrong age category, You can prove release of the program was not within the specified time frame). It must not come anonymously, and you must be willing to stand behind your disagreement. The Joey Awards Team will investigate the claim, and if they feel it is warranted and true, they will take the claim to 3 adjudicators who will make the final decision. If a nomination is pulled for any reason, the parent of that child will have the right to appeal the decision within 5 business days. After the adjudicators read the appeal, the absolute final decision will be made. The source of the original disagreement will stay private to only Joey Awards organizers.

The Joey's believes that part of the growth of a young actor is their training and audition process.

You do not need to enter any program categories to enter this! You can have never booked any work and have nothing to submit and still enter this! All entrants of the monologue contest are invited to attend the Red Carpet Gala.

Any young actors age 4-21 years are eligible to submit a taped monologue for judging. 
The top monologues in the age categories of 4-5 years, 6-8years, 9-11 years, 12-14 years & 15-21 years will receive a trophy and win the Joey monologue of the year.

Here is how to enter the contest:
1. Find a monologue of your choosing.
2. Monologues should be no more than 2 minutes in length. The Joey's understands this can be long for a younger child, so please choose accordingly for them.
3. Tape your monologue the same way you would an audition tape. Monologue must be filmed between Sept 15, 2017 and Oct 31, 2018.
4. Send to the Joey's at [email protected] on an unlisted youtube (please do not set to private - our adjudicators will not be able to see private videos) by Oct 31, 2018 to be judged by our adjudication panel. Please email your monologue to [email protected] and include your full name and age.
