BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition

BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition

Founded by BBC Cymru Wales in 1983 as a platform for young singers of opera and Lieder on the threshold of their professional careers.  Contestants are auditioned by the Competition staff to select the final 25. The competition is open to applications from singers at the start of their careers, aged between 18-32. The CSOW receives £15,000 prize money and possibly a BBC engagement. An engagement with Welsh National Opera may also be offered. The four other finalists receive £2,500 each. The event is adjudicated by a panel of distinguished international jurors. This award is available every two years.
