From January of this year already, competitions of the GrandSlam Series award more World Ranking points than any other competition or championship in the WDSF calendar. Prize money has been increased too!
The record entries in the Antwerp and Copenhagen GrandSlam Latin legs confirm that the couples have taken note of these changes.
A number of other changes will go into effect from January 2013. Latin and Standard competitions will always be combined in the five legs making up the GrandSlam Series as well as in the GrandSlam Finals. Locations for Series and Finals - and their respective dates - will be fixed for a period of five years. All legs and the Finals will be televised worldwide. Now WDSF invites organisations to tender for the media rights 2013 - 2017.
Sant Cugat, 7 March 2012 | The World DanceSport Federation is offering interested organisations the opportunity to respond to an Invitation to Tender (ITT) for the purchase of the worldwide media rights to the WDSF GrandSlam Series Standard and Latin from 2013 to 2017.
The WDSF GrandSlam Series brings together the best DanceSport athletes to compete in five qualifying events and the Final, and through the qualifying system guarantees spectacular competition.
The venues chosen for the six events over the next five years are
All dates are fixed within the WDSF calendar 2013 - 2017.
WDSF seeks to increase the awareness and popularity of DanceSport, which has become an important leisure activity. By increasing the exposure in those countries where the sport is little known, WDSF will create greater awareness of the value of bringing together physical effort, artistry and music.
Advances in technology and opportunities to exploit new means of distribution to the viewing public will be an important part of exploiting the rights and helping WDSF achieve its goals.
WDSF will analyse all replies to the ITT that are received and will make a shortlist of applicants who will be invited to present their proposal in more detail. WDSF will then decide which applicant(s) will be selected as its contractual partner(s) for the exploitation of the rights.
The Invitation to Tender document can be obtained from:
Lukas Hinder, WDSF First Vice-President by e-mail at email@example.com or
