2019 editions

Obernai (France), March-April 2019


The 31st edition of the Competition (Anglophone) will take place in Obernai (France) from 16 to 23 March 2019 - the 32nd edition (Francophone and Anglophone) will take place from 30 March to 6 April 2019 in the same place.

Update 14 November 2018 :

One slot remains open for the Francophone session. Should you wish to attend, contact as soon as possible the Administrator of the Competition at christophe@concourspictet.org. Note that it won't be possible to receive support from the Universality Fund or be exempted from registration fees for this slot.

The Regulations and the application file are available. The deadline for applying is 8 November 2018.

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 was 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.
