Poznań is a city on the Warta river in west-central Poland, in Greater Poland region. It is best known for its renaissance old town, destroyed during World War II and then rebuilt, and Ostrów Tumski cathedral. After the second partition of Poland Poznań was administrated by Prussia, and then, with the unification of Germany after the Franco-Prussian War of 1871, the province of Posen became part of the German Empire.

Furthermore, the city of Posen was officially named an imperial residence city, leading to the construction of the Imperial Castle, the Imperial District, the Opera House, new city walls, railway station and many other sites which make a big part of its landmarks to this day. Today, Poznań is an important cultural and business centre and one of Poland’s most populous regions with many regional customs such as Jarmark Świętojański, traditional Saint Martin’s croissants and a local dialect.

The MIR Production production center continues to distribute the prize fund, and by the end of March 2020, information will also appear about the other participants who became its owners.

This distribution of the prize pool helps MIR Production help talented young musicians, selected participants of INTERNATIONAL MUSIC COMPETITION – Belgrade, Serbia, to advance their musical career, professional growth and opens up new horizons for them in the music world.
