Central composer of the annual guitar competition during the 2018 Antwerpen Gitaarfestival is Nejc Kuhar. The competition takes place on 10, 17 and 18 November. There are two age categories, but due to our recent involvement with the festival collaborative EuroStrings we had to update our competition rules. The Antwerpen Gitaarfestival Junior Competition now welcomes guitarists of up to and including 18 years of age; while the Antwerpen Gitaarfestival Masters Competition welcomes all guitarists of up to and including 25 years of age.
The non-refundable enrolment fee for the competition is 30 Euros. The number of competitors is limited. Don’t wait too long and make sure to read through the revised rules & regulations.
Like every year, each competitor will receive a gift set from the D’Addario Foundation. Total prize money for this edition is 4550 Euros. The winners in the international categorie gets a concert guitar from the Bosnian luthier Zoran Kuvac as well as the opportunity to record a professional video at Siccas Guitars in Karsruhe (Germany). He/she also gets the chance to play some paid concerts in other European guitar festivals. The winner of the junior category will receive a scholarship for our next Spring Break.
Don’t hesitate and take your chance. Eternal fame and glory await.
