The aim is to encourage young players of talent, and to help them in their professional aspirations. Competitors must show that they are able to sustain a full recital programme at a professional level.
The first prize consists of a recital at the London International Exhibition of Early Music in the year following the competition, together with cash prizes, donated by Moeck, the Society of Recorder Players and the Water Bergmann Fund.
International entries are welcome from recorder players of a suitable standard who are under thirty years of age on 1st November in the year of the competition. Previous winners are not eligible to enter.
