We are now looking forward to the judging process


Competition is now closed and we’ll keep you updated! 

We have had a fantastic response to our 2016 Composing Competition. People have sent in entries from all corners of the globe.

Well done to each and every person that has entered.   

Our judges are now hard at work assessing the variety of compositions that the competition has attracted. 

We’ll be announcing the winner on 16 January 2017. 



The winner receives the elegant Kawai upright K-15E in polished ebony (pictured) - worth over £3,350! 

Plus, the winning composition will feature inside the pages of Pianist and on the covermount CD in a future issue. Winner will also be interviewed.
