The participation in competitions is open to any interested person or group. The Eisteddfod is the happy result of a plural contribution. Taking part in this celebration is a possibility of expressing and projecting the values of the Eisteddfod: truth, love and justice. The Eisteddfod helps fostering understanding and international peace through the language of music, singing and dancing.
