One of the 2020 Finalists will also be awarded a new $2500 Community Engagement prize – judged by an independent jury panel, following a compulsory 45-minute interactive recital with local school children.
Travel stipends and host families will be available for all accepted competitors.

"I believe in transparency, in fairness above all else when it comes to the EOIVC ... not only do we post all our results online throughout the competition, we have a very strict recusal process ... any violation or misrepresentation on a disclosure form is immediate dismissal of a competitor or judge. Period ... We take this very seriously ..." Competition Founder and Artistic Director Elmar Oliveira has this week told The Violin Channel.
"Seriously, if you are thinking about entering one competition this year, this should be the one,” the former 1st prize winner at the Tchaikovsky Competition has said.
Applications to be received by: September 27th, 2019.
