It was awarded membership in the prestigious World Federation of Music Competitions (Geneva) in 2004 and has become a much-anticipated and enjoyed highlight in the New Zealand and international musical calendar.

The 18 competitors (ages 18-28) have been auditioned from an average of 28 countries and 130 applications and once they arrive in New Zealand, they perform live for a panel of seven world-renowned artist judges.
