Malaga’s Philharmonic Orchestra will be accompanying the contestants as they perform one of the obligatory pieces, Concerto in D major for guitar and orchestra op. 99, by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco.

First prize is 10,000 euros and a special edition Maestro concert guitar made by La Herradura based British luthier Stephen Hill. The winner will also get the chance to perform at the Ciudad de Úbeda and Madrid international guitar festivals in 2024.
