The 10th International Telekom Competition Bonn will take place this year from 30 November to 10 December. The competition will begin with the Welcome Concert on 30 November, in which the first prize-winner in 2021, Hans Suh, will present a varied programme and this year's field of participants will be introduced.

The competition is organised in three preliminary rounds and a two-part final. While the participants in the first two rounds and the semi-final will present solely repertoire for solo piano, the final requires chamber music and a piano concerto with orchestra. The announcement of the participants who will play in the next round of the competition will be made at the end of each round after the jury's decision and the online voting – at the venue, in the livestream and also available for review on the competition's homepage.

As a musical finale to the competition, the three prize-winners will play once again on 10 December, without any judging, in the prize-winners' matinée.
