Applications for the 12th Zadar International Choir Competition are open!


The Zadar International Choir Competition is announcing 12th edition of the choir competition, which will take place from 20 to 23 May 2021. Although due to epidemiological situations the competition was not held as planned in May 2020, it was not stopped in the intentions and desires to continue the long tradition of choral singing and competition in the city of Zadar. Therefore, we decided to adjust the situation so that the competition would take place in two ways: live and video. Amateur mixed, female or male choirs can apply by filling out online applications to follow the competition rules.

Registration fee of HRK 750 (approx. € 100 per choir) should be paid to the organiser's account after the confirmed acceptance from the Programme Committee.
