A seven-strong jury panel made up mainly of Royal Academy of Music professors determines the winners.

Bursaries are available for those who are currently receiving bursaries from their schools or local authorities so that as many people as possible can join the community. 

To join the competition send in your videos; all participants will receive feedback and cash prizes totalling £1,600, one-to-one lessons with members of the jury panel and a unique invitation to perform at London’s prestigious Royal Academy of Music.
