The 2012 International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella, or ICCA 2012, is the 16th iteration of the championship series since its inception in 1996. The championship is run by Varsity Vocals. A cappella groups from 33 states and Canada compete in up to four events, with the winning group of all four being crowned the ICCA Grand Chamption.


[edit] Structure of the Competition

The 2012 ICCA will be competed over 5 Regions: ICCA West, ICCA Midwest, ICCA South, ICCA Mid-Atlantic, and ICCA Northeast. It is unknown at this time if an international group (such as the champion of Voice Festival UK) will be considered for the finals.

In January, Varsity Vocals screens all applications and makes an initial selection of the competition. Although many who apply will make the tournament, in 2012 the number of applications from the Midwest region capped the competition and added an extra quarterfinal, each with 10 competitors. Although unconfirmed, it is believed that no more than 250 groups (50 from each region) will compete in the actual tournament.

In each region, four (or, in the Midwest, five) quarterfinal events are held, usually in the month of February. Competing groups from the region are spread throughout the quarterfinals as evenly as possible. From each quarterfinal, the first and second-ranked groups advance to the regional semifinal round.

At the regional semifinals, the top group advances to the final round as the representative of their region. The first and second runners-up are then eligible to submit a recorded video of their competition set to Varsity Vocals. Judges will score the videos with the same competition rubric, and the winning group will be crowned Wildcard Champion and compete in the final round.

The final round is typically coupled with the ICHSA Final round in a two-day event in late April. It will consist of the five regional champions, the wildcard champion, and any other international groups who have been invited by Varsity Vocals (usually after winning a championship of a similar structure in their home country). The group which places first in this competition is crown the ICCA Grand Champion and winner of the tournament.

[edit] Changes from past competitions

The 2012 ICCA Finals were held in The Town Hall in New York City, a change from Alice Tully Hall venue of recent years.
