I'm curious to know if anyone is competing this year? If you've competed in this before I'd be interested to know your experience. Thanks! Harrison

I've never been impressed by it, and for what it's worth, it's not one of the competitions that gets discussed much among the amateur competition crowd.

(I'm talking only about their amateur competition. I know they do several others, and have no idea about those.)

I've done is, as have many friends of mine. It's definitely got some shady aspects to it, and questionable judging procedures. Then again, what can you expect when a whole competition is based off a single recording where anybody can send it anything? I'm also turned off the the guy's "service" on their website to "critique" any recording people send him for a fee of $100. Maybe that's the key to winning it smile
