Application phase of JJV 2018 has begun

The application phase for the 10th International Joseph Joachim Violin Competition has begun. From now until May 30, 2018, we encourage young violinists between the ages of 16 and 27 to apply online. We will invite the 35 most suitable candidates to Hanover, where they will present themselves with a multi-facetted repertory between October 11 and October 27, 2018.

With over Euro 140,000 in monetary awards alongside attractive non-cash prizes, the JJV Hannover features some of the most valuable prizes of any violin competition in the world. The first prize includes a monetary award in the amount of Euro 50,000, a 3-year loan of a Guadagnini violin (curtesy of the Fritz Behrens Stiftung), as well as debut concerts and the international distribution of a CD. In addition to six main prizes, Stiftung Niedersachsen will also award a special prize for best interpretation of a commissioned work, an audience award, and the JJV Community Award.

You can find the application form here.
