The finalists of the competition will be judged by Brandon Phillips, the winner of the first competition and resident conductor of the CPO, Prof Victor Yampolsky, Bernhard Gueller and Richard Cock.

The winner gets a month-long internship with the Philadelphia Orchestra and two months with Victor at Northwestern University in Chicago.
