The Commission for Music and Ballet Competitions (TEMSIG), has organised annual competitions for young Slovene musicians since 1992. The competition begins with regional competitions held at music schools in Ljubljana, Domžale, Maribor, Celje, Koper, Novo mesto, and Škofja Loka, and concludes a month later with the national competition, held in either Ljubljana or Maribor. The commission selects the instruments for each competition (e.g., organ, violin, viola, violoncello, bass, guitar, harp and wind orchestras one year, accordion, horn, trumpet, percussion, trombone, tuba, and piano duo, guitar duo, and string chamber orchestra with piano the next). Musicians compete in seven age categories for solo playing and in three age categories for chamber group playing. In order to be eligible for the national competition competitors need to be young Slovene musicians who take lessons at music schools and academies in Slovenia or abroad and who achieve a minimum of 90 points at the regional competition. From 2000 to 2010 around 2,300 soloists and 900 members of choral orchestras participated in the competitions. Juries in that period featured guest musicians from around 10 countries.
