The prizes for the First Cliburn International Junior Piano Competition in 2015 will be:
FIRST PRIZE: $10,000 cash plus $2,000 scholarship
SECOND PRIZE: $5,000 cash plus $2,000 scholarship
THIRD PRIZE: $2,500 cash plus $2,000 scholarship
A portion of the prize ($2,000 for each of the three finalists, as noted above) is related to furthering musical advancement. If one or any of the top three prizewinners does not make a suitable proposal for the use of the scholarship money within one year of the Competition, that winner forfeits this portion of the prize, at the discretion of the president and CEO of the Cliburn.
All three top prizes will also include community residency and mentorship opportunities with the Cliburn.
Other special prizes will be announced closer to the Competition dates.
Any questions about eligibility, repertoire, the application process, or the application should be directed to Sandra Doan, director of artistic planning, at email@example.com, or by phone at +1.817.738.6536.
