The jury of this year's Premio Paolo Borciani International String Quartet Competition in Reggio Emilia could not choose an outright winner. The three quartets in the final – the Amaryllis Quartet from Germany and Switzerland, the Meccorre Quartet from Poland, and the Voce Quartet from France – each received a prize of €6,000. Twenty quartets competed in the event, the ninth edition of the competition. This year was the sixth time since the competition started in 1987 that the jury has not chosen a winner.
