Choirs have until the 31 October 2013 to enter the first round of the inaugural London International A Cappella Choir Competition. The competition will bring together 16 choirs from around the world in a series of public concerts at St John's Smith Square. The competition, from 21 to 26 April 2014 celebrates Sir John Taverner's 70th birthday and is organised in association with Peter Phillips and the Tallis Scholars. Peter Phillips will be chairing the jury.

The competition is open to any a cappella choir of at least 16 voices. Initially the choir must fill in an application form (available from the St Johns Smith Square website) and provide two recent recordings. The full application must be completed by 31 October 2013. Those selected will then perform in one of the preliminary rounds (22-25 April 2014) in a programme lasting 25 minutes. Those selected for the final perform a 30 minute programme each on 26 April 2014.
