Registration for the 58th International Competition for Young Conductors (2023) is only possible online via the Festival’s ticketing website.
You will find the link at the bottom of this page.

The registration process consists of several steps that must be completed in one go.
The final registration is only taken into account when the payment is validated and the supporting documents are uploaded: until we have received your convocation (step 5), your place is not reserved.

The official opening of registration is scheduled for Wednesday 18 January, noon (Paris time).
Registration will close gradually, depending on the number of participants in each city/date/time slot, with a final closing date of Tuesday 31 January, midday (Paris time).

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How long do I have to download the required documents after I have paid my registration fee?

You must upload your documents as soon as you receive the email “document en attente / pending document” (24h maximum).

I do not receive the automatic emails

Remember to check your spam. The emails come from the address venteenligne@festival-besancon.com
Check that the payment has been validated. Check that the supporting documents are not too heavy or in an unacceptable format.

I can't make the payment / my payment is refused

Check that you are using an authorised method of payment: Visa, MasterCard / PayPal transfer.
Check that your bank account has sufficient funds or contact your bank to find out about any transfer limits (particularly abroad, depending on your geographical location).
Please note: even if you have created your account and chosen your preselection location, the registration is not taken into account until the payment is validated and the supporting documents are uploaded; your place is therefore not reserved.

The desired city / day / time is not available

We do not have any back-up places: if a city / day / time is no longer displayed, it means that there are no more places available.
You can choose to register for another city / day / time and, after your registration, contact Elodie Farges (contact in the registration confirmation email) to inform her of your wish to change.
We will ONLY be able to accommodate your request if a place becomes available or if another candidate makes a similar request.
As a reminder, registration fees are not refunded in case of cancellation by the candidate.

Is it possible to see how many places are left per time slot?

To find out how many places are left in a time slot, select the city and then click on the desired slot (a slot with a cross in front of it means that it is full).
The number of places available is displayed to the right of the date (or below), next to the words “Number of places available online / Nombre de places disponibles en ligne”.

I want to change city / day / time slot

You can contact Elodie Farges (contact in the registration confirmation email) to express your wish for a change.
