The idea of launching an International Composition Contest together with the Guitar seminar for children and teenagers in Saarland sprang from the difficulty of finding a guitar‐ensemble repertoire with a degree of excellence that is, at the same time, appropriate for beginners whose technical accomp-lishments are limited in the field of chamber music.
The first contest was held in 2010 and since then over 100 composers from Europe, North, Central and South America participate every year. The idea is not only attractive but it also fills a big gap in the field of guitar teaching.
Requirements to participate in the next contest can be found [here].
