Berlin/Budapest: The time has come to start working on those new year resolutions. Today, we open our Call for Proposals for WOMEX 20, returning for the second time to Budapest, Hungary, from 21 – 25 October 2020.

The WOMEX Call for Proposals is open to all musicians, filmmakers and music experts from across the globe. We invite all those with new music, new approaches, new interpretations and ideas. Once the proposals are in, the official programme will be hand-picked by an independent, international and annually changing panel of jury members, also known as the Seven Samurai (the 2020 jury will be announced shortly).

For the 26th edition of WOMEX, as always, we invite and encourage you to submit proposals in four categories – Showcase | Club Summit | Film | Conference. The submissions can be made via our dedicated website:


The deadline for proposals for WOMEX 20 is Friday, 13 March 2020.

WOMEX welcomes proposals from all backgrounds and especially encourages projects especially those that increase the diversity of the international music scene – whether culture, region, gender, styles, performance tradition or more.
