The call is open to all composers of any nationality, without age limit. Each composer will only be able to submit one work. The submitted work must be the original creation of the author, be unpublished, not be the result of a paid commission, neither awarded in any competition, and must not have been performed in any concert or public event, not even in any of its parts (should it had them), neither with its present title or any other, and must not have been broadcasted by any medium.

The works will be written for oboe and piano (with no electroacoustic resources). The duration of the works must be between minimum 12 minutes and maximum 20 minutes. Works that are not within those time limits will be disqualified.

A single prize is to be awarded, worth 4,000 euros, subject to current tax legislation. The Jury, acting by unanimity, may not select a winner, whenever the quality of the submitted works is not considered as sufficient.

The World Première of the winning work will take place during the last quarter of 2019 in the Assembly hall of the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Carlos, that reserves the right to choose the interpreters who will feature such première.
