Can I record more than myself on one video tape?
A. Yes you can, as long as
each entry is properly documented with the registration number. We
suggest you write on a piece of paper - name, key number corresponding
with the video recording. It is always a good idea to introduce
yourself before beginning your recitation. This will help our
digitizers to identify who's who?
How does the judging take place?
A. Qualified Quranic Reciters (Qaris) view each entry. They use
the following three criterias (1) Qiraah (2) Ada (3) Tajweed. It is
highly recommended to pay due attention to all three of the criteria.

Why cannot I see my own video playback properly?
A. Well, the connection speed is a big variable. Videos
generally requires high bandwidth. If you are operating at 56.6K bps
modem, your viewing may not be as smooth as someone operating at a
high speed DSL or Cable Modem.
Why do I have to record so early and send you the video?
A. Although you are entitled to ship us your video until the
last day, but if you send it as soon as you feel you are ready to
participate, it will help us begin the digitizing. Last year, we
received over 80% of the entries during the last week of the
competition. This resulted in sleepless nights of our digitizers and
extra load on judges. Be considerate to your brothers and sisters who
volunteer hundreds of hours in digitizing your videos.
Can I participate if I am just a day less than 5 years and/or a day
more than 25 years?
A. Although this may sound otherwise but to be fair to everyone we
request to be excused for our inability to accommodate such requests.
Are the judges qualified?
A. Yes, all the Judges are widely respected among Muslim communities
for their qualifications.
What happens when I win & how do I go about and
claim my prize?
A. You will be contacted via email and/or phone. You would then
be introduced to the sponsor for further coordination.
