The 2013–14 ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating was a series of senior international figure skating competitions in the 2013–14 season. Medals were awarded in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing. Skaters earned points based on their placement at each event and the top six in each discipline qualified to compete at the Grand Prix Final, held in Fukuoka, Japan.

Organized by the International Skating Union, the Grand Prix series began October 18 and run until December 8, 2013. Skaters competed for medals, prize money, and a chance to compete in the Grand Prix Final. The series sets the stage for the 2014 European, Four Continents, the World Championships, as well as the 2014 Winter Olympics and each country's national championships.

The corresponding series for junior-level skaters was the 2013–14 ISU Junior Grand Prix.

Qualification[edit]

At each event, skaters earn points toward qualification for the Grand Prix Final. Following the 6th event, the top six highest scoring skaters/teams advance to the Final. The points earned per placement are as follows:

Placement Points (Singles/Dance) Points (Pairs)
1st 15 15
2nd 13 13
3rd 11 11
4th 9 9
5th 7 7
6th 5 5
7th 4 -
8th 3 -
9th -
10th -

There are seven tie-breakers in cases of a tie in overall points:

  1. Highest placement at an event. If a skater placed 1st and 3rd, the tiebreaker is the 1st place, and that beats a skater who placed 2nd in both events.
  2. Highest combined total scores in both events. If a skater earned 200 points at one event and 250 at a second, that skater would win in the second tie-break over a skater who earned 200 points at one event and 150 at another.
  3. Participated in two events.
  4. Highest combined scores in the free skating/free dancing portion of both events.
  5. Highest individual score in the free skating/free dancing portion from one event.
  6. Highest combined scores in the short program/short dance of both events.
  7. Highest number of total participants at the events.

If there is still a tie, the tie is considered unbreakable and the tied skaters all advance to the Grand Prix Final.
