Acclaimed for its standard of excellence, the Award is held every two years in Shepparton and represents a true test of artistic talent and technical mastery in the world of classical piano.
Aged between 21 and 35 years, pianists from across the country compete for the top honour, national recognition, concert engagements and $65,000 in cash and prizes. Past winners have gone on to achieve international recognition.
The Award is recognised nationally and internationally as one of the major music events in Australia and is broadcast by ABC Classic FM nationally.
The Australian National Piano Awards will next take place during September 2018.
