There are special cups for Piano Performance, donated by the European Piano Teachers’ Association;  a cup  for  Singing, donated  by  Mr.  and  Mrs.  Scullion; and a cup donated  by  David  and  Sheila  Winpenny (the  founders  of  the  competition) for  the  most  promising  instrumentalist. These cups are awarded by the adjudicator.

No marks are awarded, but very good performances other than the winning performances may be highly commended, gaining special certificates.

Every performer receives a certificate and a copy of the adjudicator’s comments on their performance.

NB there were major changes to the organisation of the District 1040 Young Musician Final in 2015.

There were no longer 3 age groups with a winner in each. Instead the District Final matched the National Final by being an open age competition.

Each Young Musicians event is able to send 2 performers to the District Final. These may be either 2 instrumentalists or one singer and one instrumentalist. 

Audience admission, which covers all or any of the competition stages and evening concert, is £3 per adult, children free.  Admission free to teachers of competitors and their accompanists
