Judging Panel

The winners of the European School Music Prize will be selected by an expert judging panel composed by senior representatives from the field of music education. 

The judging panel will select the respective winners of each category from the entries submitted. The jury is authorised to split the prize money of a given category or to not award a prize, at their discretion.

The judges' decision is definitive and unassailable.

Exclusion of legal proceedings
The judging panel’s decisions are final. There is no legal entitlement to consideration in the selection procedure or to the announced prizes. Unless otherwise explicitly described, the conditions set out in the participation conditions apply.
