The MTAC Lip Sync Contest Submissions are NOW CLOSED! Thank you for your interest. Check out our rules below to prep for the contest.

What is the LipSync Contest?

The MTAC LipSync Contest is a fun-filled event where people compete to be the best at pretending to sing along to their favorite songs. Those aspiring to be the next Milli Vanilli should come out and compete!

Please read the rules thoroughly as they have changed from previous years.

Contest Rules
  • Audio files must be under four minutes long. In the event that multiple audio files are submitted within the same competing year, the earliest submission will be accepted. All other competitors will be asked to resubmit an audio file while holding their place in the submissions.
  • Audio files must be all ages appropriate. Audio with explicit or suggestive lyrics will be denied and competitors will be given one chance to change their song to comply with the rules.
  • Props are allowed to an extent and must be approved by the event coordinator. Please do not throw them into the crowd, towards our photography staff, or scatter them across the stage.
  • All acts are restricted to the stage. Any attempt to perform offstage will result in immediate disqualification and prevent you from returning next year.
  • Visible undergarments will result in immediate disqualification. Please email the event coordinator directly if there are any questions or concerns.
  • In the interest of keeping the competition fair, marriage proposals and other major distractions will result in an automatic removal from the stage and competition and prevent you from returning next year.
Application Information
  • All applications must be completed by March 1, 2024.
  • You will receive an email informing you of your acceptance, denial, or placement on the waiting list into the competition.
  • Competition spots are awarded in proportion to the overall length of the competition.
  • The event coordinator will review your application and let you know if there are any changes that need to be made.
  • Not everyone will get a spot due to time constraints. However, you will be notified if you are on the waiting list should someone drop out.
Performance Suggestions
  • Sync your lips to the music without audibly singing.
  • Face the judges as much as possible while performing.
  • Utilize the whole stage.
  • Dress up, bring props, and be creative! Make this memorable!
  • No burlesque or obscene gestures. This is an all ages show, so keep it clean! Burlesque type performances can be submitted to our Risque Contest.

PLEASE KEEP ALL SURPRISES FOR THE AUDIENCE AND JUDGES, NOT THE EVENT COORDINATOR. If you have any questions, concerns, or surprises, please email mainevents@mtac.net.
