The ICCR presents a new format for the judging, in which a winner will be determined for each round. Next to these six ‘specialist awards’ also a Grand Prix will be awarded for the best all-round conductor. The international jury will consist of a fixed core of four members extended with three rotating ‘specialists’ for each round.
The selection rounds will take place from 1 to 3 June 2021 in De Doelen Rotterdam. Participants of the selection rounds will be judged by Anja Bihlmaier, Sian Edwards, Ara Guzelimian, Antony Hermus, Wayne Marshall, Kenneth Montgomery and Elmar Weingarten.
