The judges pre-select Winners of cash prizes according to first round results. 

The final decisions, however,  will be made based on recital performances. 

Multiple winners will receive smaller prizes. Grand prizes may be shared among several participants. 

Decisions on monetary rewards are based on accumulated auditions score, composition complexity and contestant's artistic maturity.
Rewards might be suspended due to subpar recital performance.

* Please, note that the award system is established in a manner which those who receive the First Place honor are not necessarily predisposed to receive a Prize. An applicant's placement does not always correspond to the Prize they receive. With that being said, only judges may promote a winner's Prize in the case of a special achievement.

 

Students will receive board certified diplomas and instructors with 5 or more winners of First or Second Place honors will receive a certificate of excellence.
