Further Details

The New International Music Competition fostering creativity and collaboration between different Art Forms.

VIDEO SELECTION (no travel required to apply).

The purpose of the Competition is to encourage musical collaboration between artists and different art forms, fostering special connections artists share with one another — to create something beautiful and worthwhile.
We are on the search of selecting high-quality musicians making meaningful collaborations, stories, and concepts that promote the joy of uniting different art forms as well as society in general.

The theme and keyword of the 2020 edition is BODY RESPECT.

The programming and conceptualizing of the submitted material should in one way or another encompass this keyword.

Regulations:

WHO CAN APPLY?

Musicians, conservatory or music academy students or alumni up to 7 years of musical institutions, collaborating with artist(s) of a non-musical category. Collaboration with a non-music artform is obligatory.  The jury will look for the most inspiring ways on how the music is enhanced by another art form, where the musicians are the ones being evaluated.

This competition is an opportunity for all music categories, soloists or chamber musicians up to 6 members, to show their creativity through combining another artform of their choice (visual, movement, literature…).

Our goal is to maximize the potential of creativity through musical expression and to celebrate the collaboration of artists in different fields.

VIDEO SELECTION: our jury will select the finalists and winners through the material submitted online, so travel is not required.

HOW AND WHEN TO APPLY?

APPLICATION DEADLINE: October 1st, first online video selection.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Although collaborating with non-musical art forms, this Competition remains a music competition and the other art forms serve as an enhancement of the music performed and not a separate category that is to be judged in a technical sense.

MATERIALS TO BE SUBMITTED:

  • Fully submitted online application form.
  • CV with a photo.
  • Diploma or certificate of enrollment in a musical institution in a PDF format.
  • Application fee of EUR 75 per application. You will receive an invoice after you submit Online Application.
  • 2-4 min video presentation of yourself and a concept proposal sent in youtube or Vimeo link.*​​

Details: Who are you, what is your art, what is your concept behind this year’s theme “body respect”? What drives you to make art? Explain how you’d realize the final performance and what other art forms you would like to include in your project and why.

* The video submitted should only contain the presentation of yourself as an artist and the concept proposal and NOT the final project. However, the concept in your presentation video is final, meaning no changes can be made after submitting the first application. If admitted in the final round, these concepts must be realized as described, otherwise, the Concours committee reserves the right to disqualify the contestant.
