How were the winners of these awards chosen? Does VO hold a competition that the public could attend to see these singers compete for these awards?

The Bursaries are awarded by the Vancouver Opera Foundation and all of the awards have specific requirements and conditions.

There is no competition for the Bursaries. The Artistic Staff (administrative, music, education, when appropriate production) come together and discuss singers or other artists (the bursaries are not all specific to singers) who would qualify for a Bursary.

After a consensus on each award has been reached, the recommendations are sent to the Board of the Vancouver Opera Foundation who make the final decision on who will receive a Bursary award.
