The deadline of this year's competition is being extended to 31 July 2013 to accommodate for delay in announcing both venue and jury panel; we appreciate that prospective applicants may be put off entering the competition without having all of this information available.

In order to respect those applicants who had applied by the intial deadline of 31 May 2013, we will be soon informing you individually of your success in proceeding to Round 1 of the competition. To this end we ask you to check the email address you have submitted in your applications, to ensure that this the correct correspondence email address.

Other competitors who have already submitted audio recordings will be assessed only after they have completed their applications, and at the latest by 14 August 2013 (14 days after the extended deadline of 31 July), when a final list of confirmed Round 1 competitors will be published.

The competition rules will be amended shortly to reflect these changes.
