The deadline was initially set for 20 November but it was extended until 30 November, giving the applicants an additional 10 days to submit their works. 

The competition is returning for its sixth edition this year, after being suspended in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

It is organised by the Ministry of Culture’s Cultural Development Fund.

Egyptians aged 18-38 are eligible to submit one song for the competition’s first phase by filling out an application at the Cultural Development Fund’s website.

Further details about the process are also available on the website.

Submissions may also be made directly through the fund’s offices located at the Cairo Opera House’s grounds, Zamalek, Cairo.

The Golden Voice competition was founded by late opera soloist Mohsen Farouk (1961-2017), who was also the director of the House of Arab Music (“Beyt Al-Ghena Al-Araby”) where some contest finalists performed.

Minister of Culture Nevine El-Kilani noted that the first prize, amounting EGP 20,000 first prize, will bear the name of Mohsen Farouk “in gratitude for his role in establishing the competition, and for being one of the knights of defending Egypt's musical identity and heritage.”

The second prize is worth EGP 15,000 and third EGP 10,000. The fourth to 10th prize winners will be awarded certificates of achievement.
