Two weeks ago the PianoArt competition began. We had more than 100 participants from 26 countries around the world. All submissions have been received and results are ready. On behalf of the PianoArt competition committee we would like to present to you the results of the 2020 competition. Let me introduce PianoArt committee: Volodymyr Slakva is the principal event organizer and a judge. Katerina Slakva is the correspondence specialist and a judge. Anna Prosenco is in charge of files and documents and a judge. Vitalii is the programmer. Olga Lutzenco is the designer. I am Roger English language specialist;
This is the second year of the competition we can see that we have a large number of the participants and they are increasing. So we would like to expend the competition to offer of monetary prizes. In order to do this, we will need to find sponsors to provide support for the prizes. Please consider how you could assist us in finding sponsors.
Perhaps in your area you know people who are interested in promoting piano skills locally. As you know PianoArt Competition brings together people from International locations for the benefit of competition as a way to improve piano skills. If we can sign on sponsors from different areas, we will be able to incentivise more competitiveness among the participants. This will benefit you by inspiring your creativity and excellence. You may interest potential sponsors by sharing with them the link on your PianoArt competition result.
This year the entries were overall of high quality which presented significant challenge for our team and the judges who kindly volunteered their time and expertise to respond to each entry with accuracy and timeliness. I think we owe debt of gratitude for their service in this competition. Please take these comments as constructive towards your efforts to develop your piano skills. All of us would like very much to see your participation in our 2021 PianoArt online competitions. We believe that with every competitive experience the pianist learns something new about their abilities. And with professional feedback one can grow as a pianist. Your placement in this year’s competition is a reflection of where you right now as a pianist, not where you could be. We hope that you will be encouraged through your experience and wish you the best of luck in future competitions!
