Australian National Piano Awards

Australian National Piano Awards

Held biennially in September/October
Riverlinks Eastbank
70 Welsford Street,
Shepparton VIC 3630

The Australian National Piano Award is a world-class competition, like no other - where the hottest pianists in Australia make beautiful classical music over a week, striving to win up to $68,000 in cash and prizes.

Fourteen of the best young Australian pianists are selected to perform in this fast-paced and inspirational series, beginning with rounds one and two, followed by the Semis and Grand Final recitals. These artists aged between 21 and 35 have their hearts set on winning the massive prize money, applause and attention, throughout the week.

Set in country Victoria, in September at Riverlinks Eastbank, Shepparton, the musicians battle it out day and night, covering masterworks by Chopin, Beethoven, Bach, Schubert, Debussy and many others. Their repertoire is filled with variety as they approach works of the Baroque, Classical, 19th Century Romantic and French Impressionist periods, as well as music written after 1950, with the highest standard.

From start to finish, the musicians are given a warm country welcome, synonymous with the people of Shepparton, supporters who are very proud to host this hot contest and major event every two years.

The Australian National Piano Awards have been postponed until 10-15 October 2022.
