Welcome to the Acceptd online portal for The DPAC Rising Star Awards. We are delighted that you are interested in participating this year. Here you will submit the necessary materials for registration. 

There are three phases of the application process:

  1. School Registration
  2. Student Nominations & Show Details
  3. Post-Production Submissions

Materials for all application phases must be submitted by one designated school representative; any materials submitted to us separately by other teachers or school representatives will not be accepted. 

Before you begin, please review the 2023/2024 Handbook. The handbook lists and describes all items that will be required during each application phase, and is available to view and download here: 

Click the green “Apply” button at the bottom of the page to begin the registration/application process.

If you experience any technical difficulties with uploading or submitting your materials, use the green "Help" button on the left of the screen. You can access Acceptd Customer Support by calling 1- 888-725-2122 or by email at
