Online Music Competition


The North International Music Competition is an online music competition for musicians around the world.

We want to encourage more young musicians to perform and grow. A competition can offer many benefits to our participants and provide a platform where they can feel comfortable competing. We hope that this will help developing a confidence and help musicians realise their dreams and potential. Our purpose is to discover artists of outstanding personality and provide awards which can help to launch international careers.

We are excited to present the results of The North International Music Competition 2017!

The 2018 spring competition is now OPEN and is being held between the 8 of January 2018 – 15 of April 2018!
