Filming of Finals Debates

Due to the significance of finals debates and value to future training for the debating community, it is a condition of entry into the finals series that students agree to be filmed. Where a team member does not wish to be filmed, the team is able to substitute a team member who is willing to be filmed. The team must notify Debating SA that this is the case.
