Download the 2013 rules and entry information
For 2013, the rules for the international categories closely follow the rules of the Coupe Mondiale. The South Pacific international concert music category has exactly the same rules as the Coupe Mondiale Masters category and the South Pacific entertainment category has exactly the same rules as the Coupe Mondiale Virtuoso Entertainment category.
Junior (under 18years) South Pacific categories require the first round of the Coupe Mondiale Junior concert and entertainment categories. These rules are to encourage international participation.
New Zealand Accordion Association (NZAA) President Sonja Palinich (pictured above) writes: “The NZAA is delighted to once again have the use of the outstanding Raye Freedman Arts Centre, a venue that is ideally suited, with excellent acoustics, lighting and all its ‘state of the art’ facilities under one roof."
