For over twenty years the INTERKULTUR competitions have been amongst the most innovative events in the international choral scene. The choirs have been evaluated by high-ranking international adjudicators according to the MUSICA MUNDI evaluation system and awarded Golden, Silver and Bronze Diplomas and Medals.

The World Rankings, having retroactive effect back to the year 2000, make it possible to get an impressive overall comparison of all choirs that have participated in the INTERKULTUR competitions. Based upon these world rankings, individual lists are then made which reflect the situation in the various categories.
