What the Competition involves for a competitor
Competitors should carefully read the Rules to ensure eligibility and conformity and the dates for the next competition.
The Bromsgrove is a unique international competition; all chosen competitors are invited to stay on site, with full board and lodging provided. The competition takes place in three stages after initial acceptance, carried out by independent adjudicators on the basis of recorded performance; a Preliminary Round for all 54 competitors who are allocated times during the first three days of the competition. On the fourth day there is then a Semi-Final Round for those competitors selected from the Preliminary Round by the Adjudicators.
The final round known as The Finalists' Concert takes place before a full live audience during the evening of the last day for just three competitors chosen to move forward to that round. At the end of that evening, the Chairman of the Adjudicators announces the order of winners and the prizes are presented.
