2019 edition

Venue and dates to be announced


The 31st edition of the Jean-Pictet Competition will be held between February and April 2019. The exact date and venue will be announced in September 2018, at which time the application File and the Regulations for 2019 will be available. The deadline for applications will be 8 November 2018.

You can download, for information, the Regulations and the application file of the 2018 edition.

It is important to note that the selection process is very rigorous and highly competitive. In recent editions, only about one out of two teams has been selected; teams are therefore invited to prepare a high quality file, in order to maximize their chances of being selected.

Once selected, teams must pay the registration fees and travel expenses. Accommodation and meals are taken care of by the organizers. Teams from economically disadvantaged countries may receive financial support (partial or full exemption from registration fees and/or travel assistance). See the Regulations of the Competition for more details.
