WORLD OPEN ONLINE MUSIC COMPETITION IS THE OLDEST OF ALL ONLINE COMPETITIONS!
Since ancient times, people, being at a certain distance from each other, felt the need to communicate or transmit any messages. There were a variety of ways to do this at different times: messengers, post birds, smoke, a fire, specially training heralds. In the modern world, the fastest, most convenient and reliable way is undoubtedly the Internet.
In 2004. Facebook appeared, in 2006. Twitter. Viber was founded in the beginning of 2010, and Instagram in October of the same year. In 2009, the idea of organizing a music competition that took place entirely online appeared.
The desire to organize an online competition appeared so that the huge work of the teacher and the talent of the student, whose performance at the classical music competition is mainly watched by a limited number of spectators (jury members, teachers, parents and several dozen interested classical music lovers), with the help of the Internet allowed a countless number of people from all over the world view the full process time and time again.
The original idea of the online competition was to transfer the performance “live” from the concert hall to the online platform and as close as possible to the atmosphere of the “live” competition – the online format. And by the end of 2009 the slogan appeared on our website of the online competition:
“NEW LOOK AT THE COMPETITION – THE FUTURE OF THE COMPETITION IS OPEN”!
For the first time in the history of music competitions for pupils of schools, colleges and conservatories, as well as for participants without age restrictions, back in 2010, we combined and organized a competition for all instruments in one place (website) thanks to the Internet.
The Internet Music Competition was later renamed INTERNATIONAL MUSIC COMPETITION, Belgrade, Serbia, and since 2020 it is entitled WORLD OPEN Online Music Competition.
There is ample evidence of the exceptional role that our organization has played in the development of online contests, and is still a successful leader today.
WORLD OPEN Online Music Competition is the competition with the longest tradition (since 2010) and is completely online. Only at our competition, as proof, in the archive of the website www.musiccompetition.eu you can see all the videos and results of the participants since 2010!
