Dear Debaters, Adjudicators and Debate Enthusiasts,
It is with great pleasure that Christ University brings to you it sever-so-awaited annual Parliamentary Debating Tournament, Christ University Parliamentary Debate, 2014.
Slated to be held between the 14th and 17th of February 2014, CUPD 2014 (As we’ve fondly come to call it) is an Asians Parliamentary Debate with international debaters, “truly rewarding” prize money, a comfortable stay and an OC fawning all over you to make sure you’re well-pampered and most importantly, our superfast tabbing and on-schedule debates which shall give you enough time to go out and party in Bangalore before the curfew time sets in.
Not to forget, we have a star-studded, celebrity adjudication core, as always, with Aashay Sahay, Kalrav Mishra and Siddhartha Thyagarajan who will be making sure our biggest promise to you is kept – an exemplary debate.
If that’s not enough, we also have an obscene amount of prize money stacked up for those qualifying debaters and adjudicators. Want to know how much? *drum roll* You’ll have to break to find out! ‘Obscene’ is all that we’re going to say now.
Find all further details with regard to our adjudication core, schedule, organizing committee and the tournament in general on our page HERE.
The registration fee is Rs. 750/- per participant which can be paid on arrival, just to make the process simple and easy. This fee is exclusive of the accommodation, for which you will have to pay a bit more.
Registrations are now open for:
1. Institutional teams HERE.
Register soon – for we have a team cap of 50 teams and it’ll be on a first come first served basis. The last date to register is 14th January, 2014. We follow the N1 rule so every team needs to bring its adjudicator.
Also, we don’t believe in staying in the closet or imposing restrictions so CUPD is an open debate which invites cross-teams, independent adjudicators and basically anybody who is competent enough to debate.
2. Cross teams please register HERE.
3. Independent adjudicators are requested to fill up the form HERE.
Do you believe you’re that good that we’d absolutely need you here to adjudicate in our tourney? Check out our adjudication subsidies and apply away! Mind you, we’re fairly generous when it comes to subsidies if you can promise to add value and quality to our debate.
For adjudication subsidies please apply HERE.
The last date for the Adjudication Subsidy Applications is 5th Jan 2014.
We will send you a mail to let you know the status of your requested slots or subsidies. We are super efficient in this respect. We will also keep you all posted with each and every detail!
Should you need a place to stay during the tournament, ensure you register for accommodation on the application form so we’d be able to reserve a comfortable room for you and assign a minion volunteer of your own who shall ensure you’re making it on time for the rounds everyday (Yes we take punctuality VERY seriously around here).
In case you have any more questions, feel free to send us a mail at CUPD2014@gmail.com or drop a call to the Organising Committee who,we assure you shall be really patient in explaining anything which is unclear or hasn’t been mentioned in this mail.
Hope to see you this February!
