Video Requirements – Season 4

  1. Candidates can submit separate videos for different pieces.

  2. The hands and face of the candidates must be clearly visible.

  3. Candidates can choose to enter into more than one category if they wish. If they do, candidates will need to submit additional application forms. Applicants will need to pay for each category the candidate enters into.

  4. Candidates can only play one musical instrument for each application. An additional musical instrument will need to be submitted as another application.

  5. Candidates can apply in the same category with different instruments. They can also apply into different categories with different instruments.


If you are willing to get enough points from Season 4 competition, then you should record the video for "Musician of the Year" first, and submit it in time after Season 4's results published. Please check the video requirements« for "Musician of the Year 2020-2021" carefully, as videos failed to meet the requirements will not be considered.

Video Requirements – Musician of the Year 2020-2021

  1. Video Submission Deadline – April 1st 2021.

  2. Candidates must say 'London Young Musician of the Year 2020-2021', or hold up a piece of paper with this sentence written on it, to the camera at the beginning of the performance. This is to ensure that the video performance is newly recorded and has been specifically made for the year-end competition. 

  3. The performance video MUST be recorded only for the year-end competition. Previously recorded performance video(s) will not be accepted. Editing a speech clip onto old video(s) is also NOT allowed. 

  4. Each candidate can only send ONE video – this video can include one or more pieces, and it must meet the requirement of the limited time for the category (check below). 

  5. Candidates will be disqualified if the submitted video does not meet the three requirements above. 

  6. The video is encouraged to be creative, but this is NOT a must. Here are some ideas for reference: 

  • Make a stylish or artistic video by decorating the background.

  • Perform with other musician(s).

  • For candidates who have mastered more than one instrument, they could make a video where they played different instruments.

  • A performance video in which one person plays multiple parts of the music is allowed.
