The jury measures competitors against a professional standard and reserves the right to: award multiple 1st, 2nd, or 3rd prizes; abstain from awarding a particular prize; split prizes between two competitors; award less than maximum prize money amounts listed depending on the performerances that year. Future performance opportunities may be offered to prize winners.
Applications are being accepted starting April 1, 2023. The deadline for applications is June 30, 2023. The competition is limited to 14 contestants (possible exceptions decided by the Artistic Director and Competition Committee) and complete applications will be accepted in the order they are received.
