All conductors, all levels, wherever you are located – and whatever type of ensemble you have experience of conducting. All you need to do to enter is submit an existing recording of yourself conducting.

What is it? The Brass Band Conductors' Association's Conducting Competition.

Who is it for? This contest is a great way to gain feedback from some expert conductors and musicians who have been drawn from the world of banding - but you can be conducting any type of musical ensemble in your submitted recordings – it doesn’t need to be a brass band.
