The competition was founded in honor of Polish composer Mieczysław Weinberg, whose legacy was discovered after a revival concert series at the 2010 Bregenz Festival in Austria. Today, he is regarded as one of the greatest Polish composers of the 20th century, alongside Karol Szymanowski, Witold Lutosławski, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, and Krzysztof Penderecki.

The 2021 jury comprised Szymon Krzeszowiec (Chairman), Andreas Vierziger, Bartłomiej Nizioł, Maria Sławek, Aleksander Trostiansky, and VC Artist Jennifer Pike.

All rounds were streamed LIVE here on The Violin Channel.
