The inaugural Longwood Gardens International Organ Competition drew musicians from around the world to compete for the largest cash award for an organ competition anywhere: the $40,000 Pierre S. du Pont First Prize. Open to organists between the ages of 18 and 30, the Competition began with a qualification round that featured performers from nine different countries. An audition jury comprising six esteemed members of the organ community anonymously evaluated the competitors' audition recordings and selected 10 of the organ world's brightest rising stars to compete live before a panel of renowned judges in a quest for the top prize. Benjamin Sheen was awarded the Pierre S. du Pont First Prize on June 22, 2013.
