About the IJA Stage Championships
The IJA Stage Championships is a prestigious international competition recognizing top-level entertainment by offering medals and prize money for juggling performances. The goal of the IJA Stage Championships is to reward a stage-performed juggling act that is entertaining and marketable to a broad audience.
The IJA Stage Championships finals are held every year during the annual IJA Festival. Tickets for the final round of competitions are sold to the public.
Competitors are required to submit a video of their completed, polished routine, pay a registration fee, and complete all other application requirements by the May 15, 2018, deadline, in order to be considered for the finals. See How to Enter below for more details.
