Having been recognized as one of the world's best competitions

The Hamamatsu International Piano Competition, held every three years, marks its 11th edition this time. The Competition was designated as a member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions only seven years after its inaugural edition, and has solidified its position as an international piano competition since then. One of the distinctive characteristics of the Competition is that a lower age limit for application was eliminated at the 4th edition, which has largely contributed to unearthing many of young talented pianists who are currently active in the world music scenes. The Competition also enjoys high reputation from jury members and competitors for its exceptional management and operation.
