They will also have the opportunity to benefit from free trainings lead by international experts. The list of the coaching experts includes Fabienne Aguado and Linda Beath.

One of the winners will be decided by an international jury, whose participants are Cheryl Johnson, Jan Kean and Faruk Güven, while the other winner will be chosen by the representatives from the Ministry of Culture from Turkey and TRT (Turkish Radio Television) representatives.
