A Federation dedicated to young musicians

Our story.

Founded in 1957, the World Federation of International Music Competitions is dedicated to establishing a global network of internationally recognised organisations that through public competition discover the most promising young talents in the great tradition of classical music and further their careers by presenting them before distinguished juries, general audiences, the media, and the rest of the music community.

The WFIMC is a Member of the International Music Council (founded by UNESCO, Paris).

122 of the world's leading music competitions belong to the Federation. A number of important international music organisations are associate members of the WFIMC.
