The 2021 Prize is now open for applications!

The competition is open to all singers. It is the responsibility of each competitor to ensure they have the necessary visa/entry clearance to be in the U.K.


Three pieces are to be submitted for consideration by recording. These are to be by internet link, by either youtube, dropbox, soundcloud or a similar file-sharing service. It is your responsibility to make sure these links work for the judges. We thus do not recommend Google Drive, Vimeo private links or downloadable mp3 files.

At least two of your pieces must be by Giuseppe Verdi, and from different works.

If you are invited to the final, you may choose a different programme, similarly with a minimum of two pieces by Verdi from different works, which must be no longer than 15 minutes from first note to last, inclusive of time for applause and music changes.

This programme must be submitted no more than 2 days after the invitation to the final.

See website for recording requirements.
