Founded by Yehudi Menuhin in 1983, the Competition is one of the most important events in the calendar for young violinists. The Competition offers an array of prizes to both Junior and Senior competitors including concert opportunities, courses and instrument loans, as well as cash prizes. In addition to the competition rounds, there are masterclasses, participatory activities, talks, collaborations, and a full programme of complementary concerts bringing together world-class orchestras and ensembles. The Competition acts as an important cultural ambassador, developing a stimulating atmosphere of exchange and sharing in a collaborative spirit, focusing on participation and learning rather than victory.
