We are pleased to announce that STOART – Związek Artystów Wykonawców (Association of Performing Artists) has become the sponsor of the Third Prize, in the amount of 5000 euros, for the participants of the Competition’s Category II (chamber ensembles). We greatly appreciate that STOART supports the idea of the Competition, i.e. promotion of Polish music and its performers, regardless of their age or nationality.
About the sponsor of the prize:
STOART is the largest Polish collective management organisation in charge of protecting rights for artistic performances of music and words-and-music pieces. It manages and protects the rights of more than 500,000 Polish and foreign artists. Working either independently or in collaboration with similar institutions and organisations, it ensures that rights for artistic performances are properly executed and the artists receive all of their due royalties for the commercial use of their works.
To spread the knowledge about copyright and neighbouring rights protection, STOART organises special conferences and meetings for artists, entrepreneurs and business organisations. STOART is taking part in the international campaign FAIR INTERNET FOR PERFORMERS. It also actively promotes musical events, such as festivals, concerts, educational projects and album productions, and in doing so it does not discriminate between top stars and young newcomers.
