New Generation is a circus competition for young artists. International acts, artists, clowns and animals perform before an international jury, chaired by Pauline, the eldest daughter of H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie, in an attempt to win the Gold Junior, Silver Junior and Bronze Junior awards.
Prince Rainier III founded the Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival in 1974 to support the circus arts he loved so much, and especially circus families. In this spirit, the Organising Committee decided to create a new International Festival for Young Artists under the Honorary Presidency of H.S.H. Princess Stephanie, in collaboration with her eldest daughter, Pauline Ducruet, President of the Jury.
The New Generation Festival is the only circus competition for Young Artists that is performed in a real circus ring. It takes place at the International Circus Festival in Monaco.
