Now everyone through the world can apply to these two competitions with one application. Process is one but prizes are double – it’s even possible to win both competitions with only one registration fee and clear the table. Due to corona restrictions all rounds are made through videos prepared in advance, so you can basically attend from where ever. Video format is used to ensure  good  sound and video quality without any possible connection issues. Online competition also makes the competition both economically and physically more accessible.

Process in a nutshell

Apply & get in – make video(s) – join the live broadcasts – win the competition, or two!

First 70 eligible applicants will be accepted for Round 1 and will prepare their contest videos. The videos will be set visible at an YouTube channel. From there two separate juries will choose 20 competitors to continue to Semifinals of both competitions, Spain and Finland. it is also possible to be selected to both competitions – in such case the next video(s) can be used for both competitions. Semifinalists will have 3 weeks time to prepare their next videos. Semifinals will be broadcasted like a live performance, and the whole guitar world can join the competitions from their homes, encouraging their favourites chatting with the competitors and other listeners. Then the Juries will choose 4 players to 2 Finals. Again there will be 3 weeks time to prepare the video for the Final, which also will be broadcasted online. It will be performed simultaneously as a concert for local audiences in Petrer, Spain and in Tampere, Finland. The results will be announced over a live stream from Spain and Finland.
