Central composer of the annual guitar competition during the 2017 Antwerpen Gitaarfestival is Leo Brouwer. The competition takes place on 12, 18 and 19 November. There are two age categories. The Antwerp Guitar Competition Junior welcomes guitarists of up to and including 15 years of age; while the Antwerp International Guitar Competition welcomes all guitarists of up to and including 23 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, every competitor will receive a gift set from the D’Addario Foundation. Total prize money for this edition is 2700 Euros. Winners in both categories get the opportunity to record a professional video at Siccas Guitars in Karsruhe (Germany). And of course both laureates are already booked for the 2018 opening act.
Don’t hesitate and take your chance. Eternal fame and glory await.
