After an intensive period of online rounds, assiduously overseen by an international jury of distinguished harpists and artistic director Veronika Lemishenko: the results are in!

Below you can read the top prizes from each category, but there were a great many special prizes and honourable mentions, so if you want to know them all, head over to the competition website.

It has been an honour and a pleasure for us to sponsor this amazing endeavour, proof that music can go on, whatever the challenges in the world, promoting togetherness and high ideals of cooperation and harmony. Heartfelt thanks go the indefatigable Veronika Lemishenko, and our congratulations to all the competitors and all the prizewinners (a special congratulations to Julia Dermendjieva of Bulgaria who wins her very own Camac odyssey harp!)
