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 realize their dreams and potential. Our purpose is to discover artists of outstanding personality and provide awards which can help to launch international careers.

The aim of this competition is to find performers with a strong artistic personality and stage presence. The emphasis is therefore not on the purely technical aspect of the performance, but also on the artistic charisma of the performer.

The application for The North International Music Competition Autumn Edition of 2023 is now OPEN. Deadline is on the 22nd of October and the results will be published on the 18th of December.


“The North International Music Competition is a great opportunity for young musicians to develop their skills as performers already at the early stage of their careers. Making music at the highest professional level is not an easy task. Let this wonderful event encourage you for a life-long mission of being passionated and successful professional performers!”
