A composers contest based on a predetermined theme

The Diabelli Contest will change its theme on an annual basis and invite composers from around the world to create their very own variations. The entries will be published online, on a specified date, and reviewed by the public. The Top-10 compositions will then be performed in concert where a jury selects 3 winners who are presented with cash prizes.
