The Dealer's Choice Award is an award given to the highest placing new quartet each year in the Barbershop Harmony Society's International Quartet Contest.

History

The award was first given in 2009. It was named in honor of the Dealer's Choice quartet, who won their first time out in 1973.

Eligibility

To be eligible for the Dealer's Choice award, a quartet must be a "new" quartet, meaning that no two members have competed together before on the International Stage (this does not include the Collegiate competition.) It may not include a prior international quartet champion (full AIC member) nor two or more prior winners of the award.
