World Federation of International Music Competitions


Members of the WFIMC at the 2022 General Assembly in Bydgoszcz, Poland


Founded in 1957, the World Federation of International Music Competitions (WFIMC) is a global network of 120 internationally recognized organisations dedicated to identifying the most promising young talents in music and serving young musicians on their path to an international career. While creating a forum for dialogue and exchanges between its members, WFIMC provides advice and guidance, aiming for artistic excellence, integrity and fairness, and thus sets a globally recognized standard.

Based in Geneva, the Federation is a member of the International Music Council of UNESCO in Paris.
Specifically supporting one of its own members in need (the Horowitz Competition Kyiv), the WFIMC will take on an active role as an international arts organization in hosting the competition in Switzerland. Several member competitions, including the Ferrucio Busoni Competition in Bolzano, the Concours de Genève, the Fryderik Chopin Competition in Warsaw, the Van Cliburn Competition in Fort Worth, Texas, and the Franz Liszt Competition in Utrecht, have already offered financial, logistical and technical assistance to make this project possible.
