Applications for the 2021 Non-Competitive participation are now closed!

The International Non-Competitive strand will have a new look this year! Non-Competitive choirs can enter without needing to travel to Cork. All you need to do is submit an archival video of a choral performance, or a virtual video production (e.g. a “virtual choir” video).

Entry is free and we will broadcast the performances on the Festival’s online channels throughout the Festival week.
