Ok most young violinists do not have enough time to study rarities, but why is there no competition till 40 years where people can choose to play non standard repertoire?, like:

BRUCH , Max (1838-1920) violinconcerto 2 or 3 or Scottish Fantasy
COLERIDGE-TAYLOR, Samuel (1875-1912)
CONUS (Konyus), Jules (Yuli) (1869-1942)

ERNST, Heinrich Wilhelm (1814-1865)
GODARD, Benjamin violinconcerto 1,2 (1849-1895)
GOLDMARK, Karl 1 (1830-1915)
HUBAY, Jeno violinconcerto 3 (1858-1937)
JOACHIM, JOSEPH violinconcerto 1,2,3 (1831-1907) (Suyoen Kim 2006-Hannoverwinner recorded the 1th and 2th for Naxos)
KARLOWICZ, Mieczyslaw (1876-1909)
LALO, Edouard (violin)Concerto Russe op.29 (1823-1892)

VIOTTI, G.I. violinconcerto 22 (Antje Weithaas, 1991-Hannoverwinner played this piece in the Netherlands)
Of course noone played Stravinsky in the final (too rare, so let the candidates choose between only rarities) in Hannover so here the score:
