These are the competition guidelines: The competition is open for choreographers as well as for dancers with professional education. There is no limit regarding the stylistic direction. Performances will not only be rated for the imaginative use of space and time, but also for the way the ideas are realized and transferred to the dancers. The competition is limited to choreographers aging 35 years or younger. The length of performances should have a range between 5 and 15 minutes. A solo-ballet may not be interpreted by the choreographer him/herself. The choice of subject and music is optional. The choreographic work must be submitted on a DVD.
