5. Watter drag moet leerlinge aantrek?
Tradisioneel word pryswenners/leerders wat na die Prestige Gala genooi word versoek om in swart en wit geklee te wees.

6. Watter drag moet genooide optreders aantrek?
Skool-kore en groepe wat genooi word om by die Prestige aand op te tree moet verkieslik in hulle skooldrag optree. Dit geld vir die voorafprogram sowel as vir die hoofprogram.


7. Is daar 'n toegangsfooi betaalbaar?
Hierdie jaar sal toegang vir die publiek (ouers ingesluit) 'n bedrag van R20-00 per persoon beloop. Deelnemers, Pryswenners en Genooide gaste kry komplimentere toegang.


8. Watter toekennings word tydens die Prestige geleentheid toegeken?
Die Prestige geleentheid is geskep om twee tipes toekennings te maak. Eerstens word verdienstelike optredes tydens die afgelope eisteddfod seisoen beloon met 'n Bestuurstrofee in die vorm van 'n Prestige Sertifikaat en 'n medalje en tweedens word Ere-lidmaatskap vir onbaatsugtige diens aan huidige of vorige Lede van PVE gemaak.


9. Word bekers tydens die Prestige geleentheid toegeken?
Nee. Bekers word nie meer by die Prestige geleentheid uitgedeel nie. 'n PVE Bestuursbesluit by die Algemene Jaarvergadering van 2010 het tot gevolg dat Bekers vervang word met Medaljes. Daar sal wel bekers in die voorportaal beskikbaar wees tydens die fotosessie waar wenners deur 'n professionele fotograaf afgeneem sal word.  Die besluit is geneem na aanleiding van 'n bevinding dat die groot getal bekers en die administrasie daarvan dit grootliks bemoeilik om bekeruitdeling suksesvol te hanteer. Verder is daar besluit dat  alle bekers ingetrek en in 'n sluit-vertoonkas by die nuwe PVE kantoor ten toon gestel gaan word. Versoeke vir fotos met bekers en bekervertonings by instansies moet met 'n skrywe aan bestuur vir oorweging gerig word.


10. Wie tree by die Prestige geleentheid op?
Tydens die Prestige geleentheid word 'n gaskunstenaar genooi. Presterende Skoolkore/groepe en leerders word vir optrede deur sameroepers benoem waarna die Prestige aand organiseerder 'n keuse uit die aanbevelings maak.
Die organiseerder nooi ook persone/groepe om aan die voorprogram deel te neem.


11. Gaan fotos by die Prestige geleentheid geneem word?
'n Fotograaf is gereel om professionele fotos van pryswenners te neem. Hierdie fotos sal geneem word nadat 'n toekenning in ontvangs geneem is en wel in die voorportaal. Agterna sal Fotos saam met wenners en ander persone in die voorportaal geneem word. Fotos sal dadelik te koop aangebied word en koste daarvan word gewoonlik deur die fotograaf tydens die GALA bekend gemaak.

12. Gaan enige verversings tydens die geleentheid te koop aangebied word?
Nee. Die verrigtinge is baie kort en gaan in een sessie afgehandel word.
