Biennal Welsh language choir contest.

Winners from five category-based heats (Male, Female, Mixed, Youth and Children) take part in a grand final for the title of best choir in the Land of My Fathers along with a tidy £7,000 or so.

2007 saw the introduction of an £1,000 prize for the best conductor during the series. A separate viewers' choice award was introduced four years later.

Outside Wales, interest was piqued when the 2017 winners were invited to participate in the first ever Eurovision Choir of the Year, to be held during the summer in Riga, Latvia.
