COMPETITIONS

1. Aalborg International Composer Competition for Classical Guitar.

Deadline registration Monday, October 17th, 2022

Aalborg Guitar Festival and Competitions invites entries for the Composers Competition for the six-stringed classical guitar. The competition has been arranged in collaboration with Bergmann Edition and with the support of the Augustine Foundation (https://augustinusfonden.dk).


One of the aims of the competition is to promote new work and enlarge the classical guitar repertoire. The intention is that the composer will meet the guitarist, and the guitarist will meet the audience.

Bergmann Edition is the facilitator of the competition and is, therefore, the point of contact.
