Young Alaskan Artist Award

Since 2000, the Anchorage Festival of Music has held an annual competition to select a worthy performing Alaskan artist entering the professional field. The competition is open to any Alaskan who is at least a college freshman pursuing a college degree or program in music at an accredited institution.

Winners are presented in a debut recital in addition to receiving a substantial monetary award. Past winners continue to enjoy national and international careers as performers and music educators.

Applications for the 2017 Young Alaskan Artist Award are now being accepted.

The deadline is May 19, 2017.
