BBC Radio 2 is looking for its Young Choristers of the Year 2013. We want to affirm and encourage the contribution young people make to choirs and music groups in the United Kingdom.

This year’s winners, a boy and a girl, will receive a trophy and lessons with an established singing coach.

There will normally be opportunities for the winners to appear both on national radio and television during the year.

As well as musical excellence the judges will be looking for someone who will rise to the challenge of performing on radio and television.

The final will be recorded at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square in London on Monday 28th October 2013
