For aspiring young musicians setting out on a career as a concert pianist, money is vital for study, travel to the best teachers and access to the best pianos. The Dublin International Piano Competition gives winners the priceless service of a string of prestigious concert engagements in the leading concert venues of the world. The prime feature of the 1st prize is the promotion of debut recitals in the Wigmore Hall, London, Carnegie Hall, New York, the Steinway Prizewinner Concerts in Gewandhaus in Leipzig (am0ng others) and the National Concert Hall, Dublin. These concerts, attended by artists’ managers, agents and press, have enabled previous winners to launch successful careers.

The DIPC also offer the unquantifiable service of management and support in steering each winner towards finding an agent and networking effectively to build a career as a concert pianist.
