IJA regional competitions
Since 2011, IJA Regional Competitions (IRCs) have brought the IJA Stage Championship model to regional conventions and festivals around the world. IRCs have been hosted in North America, South America, Central America, the Middle East, South Asia and Oceania – with plans to expand to 1-2 new regions per year. Each year, the skill level and participation in these events is increasing rapidly.
The IRCs are made possible thanks to our generous donors and partners.
