As the number of participants is limited, a committee will decide on admissions and the candidate will be informed accordingly by 30.6. 2013 by e-mail. Candidates who are not accepted will receive full reimbursement of their application fee. Candidates who withdraw from the competition - whenever and for whatever reason - are specifically requested to inform the Chopin Society of their withdrawal, even though a refund will no longer be possible.

The competitors relinquish to the Chopin Society their rights on all performances of works performed during the competition and prizewinners‘ concert, for recording by whatever method or transmission by radio, TV or internet.

Prizewinners who choose not to participate in the prizewinners‘ concert forfeit their claim to the prize money. In the event of illness a doctor’s certificate is required.

The jury consists of prominent German and foreign musicians invited by the Chopin Society. The candidates‘ performances are evaluated according to the jury’s rules and a system of classification by points. The decisions of the jury are final and incontestable.

The Chopin Society will provide practice facilities for all candidates.

Candidates are responsible for arranging their own accommodation. If necessary, the Chopin Society can help with suggestions for suitable hotel accommodation. Unfortunately only a small number of guest families will be available and reserved for cases of genuine hardship.
