Applicants can submit their instruments through a free, online call for submissions that closes on October 1, 2021. In November, the public will have access to a gallery of semi-finalists online, where they can vote for their favorites and help select the finalists. 
Approximately ten finalists will be invited to Georgia Tech in March 2022 to meet with a panel of judges and participate in a concert celebrating their achievements. At the end of the concert, the judges will announce the winners.
