2019 Competition

The prize package worth $100,000 is motivating but as all our past laureates will tell you, it’s the “Michael Hill” and New Zealand experience that has been life-transformative.

Open to violinists age 18-28.

Airfares and career development are provided to every quarter-finalist.

Applications to the 2021 competition will open August 2020.
