WFIMC Associate Organisations are non-voting members, admitted by decision of the General Assembly, which contribute to the mission and objectives of the Federation. These organisations, which coordinate the activities of their own members, may take part in Federation activities, including General Assembly meetings, in an advisory capacity.
The WFIMC offers a partnership to music festivals who are committed to including Laureates of Federation competitions in their programming.
In order to have the partnership, Festivals must agree to pay artists a fee or honorarium for their performances in addition to all travel and accommodation costs. Festivals must also agree to publicise that the artists are Laureates of Federation Competitions.
So far, four festivals- two in Germany, one in the Czech Republic, and one in France, have been recognised as WFIMC Partner festivals.
