How to Apply

The Mirjam Helin Competition welcomes your application for the competition to be held on 20–29 May 2019 in Helsinki, Finland. 

The application form must be accompanied by details of the competition repertoire and a short biography, including at least the names of educational establishments attended and names of teachers, dates of any diplomas or degrees awarded, major public performances (including place and date) and any previous prizes at international competitions.

The application must include the following:

  • A copy of an ID card or other official form of identification.

  • Two photographs (high-quality, resolution 300 dpi, black and white).

  •  A high-quality audiovisual recording for pre-selection purposes, of one aria and two solo songs in different styles and in different languages. The three pieces may be recorded either individually or together, but each piece must be a single take (i.e., the sound and image must not be recorded separately). You must be recognisable from the recording(s). We recommend uploading MP4, but the following video formats will also be accepted: MPEG, MPG, MOV, AVI, WMV, M4V, VOB.  The works performed on the pre-selection recording may be included in your competition programme. We recommend you upload three separate recordings, one for each piece.
