Be part of the next competition with us
The Sydney welcomes individuals and businesses who would like to contribute to the Sydney International Piano Competition, a globally significant Australian event, by donating a cash prize. Prizes carry acknowledgement of their donors and provide the opportunity for the donor to present their prize during the award giving ceremony. Following our 2021 Online Competition, the next live Sydney International Piano Competition will take place in 2023.
Australia has proudly produced some of the world’s greatest pianists and we have welcomed pianists from other parts of the world who have contributed to Australian pianism. The prizes continue to be named in honour of significant and influential Australian pianists: e.g. the Ernest Hutcheson First Prize, the Percy Grainger Second Prize or the Eileen Joyce Best Overall Concerto prize. The People’s Choice Prize is named after Rex Hobcroft AM who founded the competition with Claire Dan AM, OBE in 1977.
