II-APPLICATION FORM AND DEADLINES To register for a competition, participants must complete the provided application form. A duly completed application must be sent with a résumé before the application deadline 1) by email to [email protected] 2) by post to : Maison de Radio France Bureau des Concours Direction de la Musique Pièce 93 80 116 avenue du Président Kennedy 75220 PARIS CEDEX 16 The application form must contain the following information: -Last and first name(s) -Tessitura -Date and place of birth -Nationality -Family situation (marital status, children...) -Address and telephone number Participants must be free from any professional or personal commitments by the specified starting date.

IV-COMPETITION PROCEDURE The competition consists in three or four tests in front of a jury. It takes place in Paris, Maison de Radio France, or any other location specified on the notification. Participants are requested to be present at the exact time of their scheduled appointment for the drawing of lots before the audition, which determines their order in the audition. The responsibility of the organizer or the jury is not engaged if for whatever reason the competition should be cancelled or its timing modified.

V-TRAVEL EXPENSES Travel and accommodation charges are at the expense of the participants.

VI-RESULTS AND SPECIAL PROVISION The jury has the right, contingent on the results of the audition, not to fill the available positions. If the jury offers a position which the winner subsequently refuses on the day of the audition, no other proposal will be made, and the participant will lose the advantage of the result obtained. The jury may choose among the participants a few singers to be taken on as temporary employees, but who will nevertheless have no rights to an internship position. VII-CONDITIONS FOR PARTICIPATION Laureates will be subject to the provisions of the "Convention collective de la Communication et de la Production Audiovisuelles" and specifically to its appendix 11 relative to musicians of the Orchestras and members of the Choeur de Radio France. A medical examination is mandatory for any position and the execution of the winner's contract will be subject to a certificate of eligibility (certificat d'aptitude) issued by the company's occupational health officer. In accordance with the provisions of article 22 of appendix 11 of the "Convention collective de la Communication et de la Production Audiovisuelles":

-Winners will be subject to a six month probationary period. The duration of this period may be extended once, but cannot exceed the initial period. In addition, it is noted that permanent employment depends on the acquisition and mastery of the skills required to carry out the job functions. Employment may be subject to an audition at the end of the probationary period, or may equally involve verification of the winner's level of fluency in French. -The artists of the Orchestras and of the Choir give absolute priority to Radio France. They are expected to complete 1110 working hours per year (hours are calculated individually). -Works performed by the artists in Radio France may be used freely by the company. -Guaranteed salary increases based on length of service are fixed at a rate of 4% per four-year period up to 24 years, then at 0.5% for each year thereafter (from 25 to 37 years of service). -35 calendar days of annual leave are granted to people employed by the company for at least one year of service during the reference period (from 1 June to 31 May of the following year), or 2.5 days of paid leave each month for people who have been employed for less than one year during the reference period. In that particular case, since the artists of the Choeur de Radio France are entitled to 35 calendar days of paid leave during the summer vacation period, the leave days are deducted without a balance.
