and the world sings in unison
World Song International Contest
The World Song International Contest has been held in Nizhny Novgorod since 2011, traditionally unifying international students, mastering their skills in the domain of the Russian language, as well as Russian-speaking ‘locals’, lured by European and Asian ethnospecificity, in their shared striving to perceive the marvels of a different culture via national colouring, musicality and deep meaning of foreign songs.
Performing in Russian, English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Korean, Japanese, Chinese and other languages lavishes the audience with a striking rainbow of national identity features, contributing to the increase in social tolerance rates, and instigating a long-term cross-cultural dialogue. The World Song International Contest creates a firm base for cross-cultural interaction, making friends and establishing creative partnership.
Annually, the Contest is arranged under the supervision of influential art and entertainment agencies, and recording labels of the Nizhny Novgorod area, that are always willing to unleash our winners’ creative potential, ensuring their success in the entertainment industry.
The World Song International Contest presupposes performing in accordance with the following list of nominations:
- Pop singing (solo, ensemble)
- Academic singing (solo, ensemble)
- Jazz singing (solo, ensemble)
- Ethnic Singing (solo, ensemble)
- Authentic song (performing a self-composed song)
- Music Video (introducing a self-produced music video, involving vocals and video backing)
- Musical theatre (operetta, performance featuring acting, vocals and choreography)
* You can participate in the "Music Video" nomination via the Internet, having uploaded your video to one of the following universally-recognized video servers: YouTube, Vimeo, RuTube, etc. or post it directly on Vkontakte or Facebook, providing a link, respectively.

** Performing in several nominations at a time is available.
*** The expert committee (jury) of the Contest is constituted by Russian as well as foreign musicians, singers, theatrical workers, choreographers and other artistic people.
REMEMBER: in accordance with the original concept of the Contest, YOU ARE TO PERFORM A SONG IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE, not your native one.
