The Best Young Guitarist of the Year

The organisers of "Guitar Kutná Hora" are proud to award "Best Young Guitarist of the Year" for the sixth time. This award is aimed at the youngest generation of guitarists up to 16 years of age, students from elementary artistic schools, specifically, to classical guitar students for exceptional achievements. What will be considered exceptional achievements are outstanding interpretations of the repertoire, placement in the competition, an original project, and participation in an activity of musical or generally beneficial value (charitable, social, etc.). Our aim is to not only support the outstanding achievements of young interpreters but also to motivate others. Proposals for this award are sent to us by individual schools and a specialist jury decides on their achievements. This year, the jury consists of outstanding guitarists, representatives of the "Guitar Kutná Hora" project, representatives of elementary music schools and sponsors and representatives of the national guitar competition "PRAGuitarra Clássica".

The winner will receive:

  • 20 sets of strings and guitar equipment sponsored by the Praha Music Center Firm, representing the firms D'Addario and Planet Waves
  • free tickets to all of the concerts within the 22nd International Guitar Biennial Kutná Hora
  • 2 lessons in masterclasses within the 22nd International Guitar Biennial Kutná Hora
  • prize from the Bärenreiter publishing house Praha
