Hi competitors!

Please take the time to have a read.

Not all competitions have the same format or rules and we have quite a few exciting things as part of IGNITE.

We’ll be sure to keep you informed at the QMJC, but it helps to know in advance what’s happening and will certainly make it a much more enjoyable event for you.

Good luck.
Mick French & Emma Keating
Event Directors



Recording the QMJC

You are welcome to use your own recording devices (cameras, mobile phones and video recorders) for all the heats and finals.

Still shots are ok.


Please do not leave your valuables unattended anywhere in the Ballroom.
Le Step accepts no responsibility for loss or theft of your possessions so it’s better to be safe than sorry and take things with you if you are leaving the Ballroom for any extended period of time.


You are welcome to bring bottled water and drinks with secure lids into the Ballroom as well as snacks to keep you energised throughout the day.  We do ask that you ensure all rubbish is taken with you when you leave or at the very least, please place rubbish in the bins provided.

Please note there is no BYO alcohol to be brought into the Ballroom.  We have arranged a bar for your convenience so feel free to purchase your alcohol in the Ballroom and drink it openly.   Any person caught pulled up by security with non-Ballroom purchased alcohol will be asked to leave.

There is a cafe/restaurant on the same level as the Ballroom for those wanting their coffee fix as well as multiple restaurants and takeaway options just a short walk from the Mantra itself.
