Kymach competed with four other finalists, including tenor Mingjie Lei, who was awarded the Song Prize earlier in the week. The Dame Joan Sutherland Audience Prize was won by Katie Bray from England, and was dedicated to the memory of Dmitri Hvorostovsky, the late baritone who won the competition back in 1989.
