Cliburn YouTube Piano Competition

The Cliburn Foundation and the Cliburn International Piano Competition, the crown jewel of piano competitions, have always been at the head of the class in combing creativity and innovation. So I shouldn't be surprised by this:

The Van Cliburn Foundation announced today the first Cliburn YouTube Contest, welcoming cyber-video entries of 5-10 minutes in length. The videos will be judged by online viewers and the winner will be entered, application fee-free, in the 2011 International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs.

Details and regulations found here.

The Van Cliburn YouTube Site is found here. I am so looking forward to this!
