Our jury is comprised of world-renowned international concert artists and pedagogues from major institutions. Judges will be evaluating the audition materials. The work of the Jury is regulated by special Rules.

The audition will be evaluated by the jury through the video materials presented by each participant. The final selections of winners will be based solely on the video recordings submitted. The judges are independent, and their students are not permitted to participate in the competition. The judges votes will be strictly confidential and will not be shared or published. All Jury decisions are final and irrevocable.

The full panel of jury members will be announced in the coming weeks.
