Applications for the Genée International Ballet Competition 2014 - to be held at the Vlaamse Opera House in Antwerp, Belgium, in September - are now open.

The annual competition is one of the most prestigious ballet competitions in the world, attracting the finest young dancers from across the globe. Those entering receive a unique opportunity to work with renowned choreographers and teachers over five days before competing for a range of medals.

This year the competition will be judged by a panel including former Director of The Royal Ballet Monica Mason, and Artistic Director of Scottish Ballet Christopher Hampson.

Previous Genée medalists include The Royal Ballet's Lauren Cuthbertson and Steven McRae, and The Mariinsky Ballet's Xander Parish, who is currently performing with the Russian company at the Royal Opera House.

The competition is organized by the Royal Academy of Dance who this year will present The Royal Ballet with its highest honour - the Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Award - at a fundraising dinner on 4 September.
