The first edition of this yearly competition took place in 2002 with the aim of giving young musicians from Denmark and Sweden the opportunity to cultivate their talent on a professional level and to strengthen the cultural cooperation in the Øresund Region (the transnational region centred on the cities of Copenhagen and Malmo). The competition is open to string and winds players from 12 to 20 years old from Denmark and Sweden and is organised by Ishøj Cultural School in Copenhagen. The competition patrons are the Danish violinist Nikolaj Znaider and the Swedish trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger. Although it covers two countries, this competition is classified by EMCY as a national competition
