AFNOM is supported by the Royal College of Organists and the Incorporated Association of Organists
Application deadline: 18th May 2013
Entry to the competition is FREE!
In previous years, AFNOM has joined forces with notable promoting agencies to provide a platform for highly talented young organists. This year we are introducing a significant change that we hope will foster a new generation of 'ambassadors' for living composers and their work. Talented organists will have the benefit of wide publicity and the chance to be heard by composers and organists from all around the world.
Any organist under the age of 30 can audition to perform our opening and closing recitals at major venues during AFNOM each year.
candidates will be offered subsequent recital opportunities throughout
the UK as well as significant promotion.
