Cold Mountain, conducted by Miguel Harth-Bedoya and performed by Santa Fe Opera, won the 2016 Best World Premiere at the International Opera Awards. The International Opera Awards were founded in 2012 and aim to: profile opera as an art form, recognize and reward success from those involved in opera, and generate funds to provide bursaries for aspiring talent in opera from around the world. 

Over the last three years the International Opera Awards has raised just under £150,000 for the Opera Awards Foundation and has given out 36 bursaries to aspiring talent in opera.

Judging of the International Opera Awards is carried out by a jury of industry professionals headed by Opera editor John Allison.
