So probably less then a month now, and it will be time to be able to apply again, the forms are put up on the itv website for the uk, and for the usa you can find the forms through the fox usa website.
And this is usually near the quarter or semi finals each year, and they usually announce on the live shows that the forms are back online and the address you can go to fill out the forms.
Before filling out a form online, read the rules and regulations, which is usually only a few pages, so does not take long, also they usually have a kind of frequently asked question type section that is worth reading as well.
This will have the information about what documents you will need to be able to audition, and also, what you need to be eligible to be able to enter the competition.
Another important detail is what age you have to be, if you are under 18 years old, yet, old enough to audition, you have to have a parent or legal guardian okay your application i think, but, definitely when you go to audition when under the age of 18 you have to take a parent or legal guardian who is 18 years or over to your audition.
The application forms are quite simple to fill out, so do not worry too much about that, and just take your time filling them out so that you do not make any mistakes.
