- Voting opens on Aug 23rd 2017 and closes on Sep 6th 2017 (11.59 PM CST)
- Try to get as many votes as possible as Voting has 50% weightage
- Although performance quality is the most important criteria for 3iii selection but voting matters a lot, if two participants are at same level and one has more votes than other, then of course participant with more votes moves ahead. This has happened a lot in previous 2 levels. So do not ignore voting at all.
- Level-3 Result will be declared on Sep 14th 2017
- If there is any State Indian Icon being hosted onsite, you will be informed accordingly as soon as possible. In that case you may need to come for live performance in front of judges. BUT so far no State Indian Icon is final for live performance so as of now, all State Indian Icons will be on-line so start working on your video ASAP to keep it ready by Aug 8th 2017 to upload and submit as competition video.
