After the success of the inaugural NZ Young Piper of the Year in 2018 we are pleased to be holding the event again in October 2019!

Who will be crowned NZ Young Piper of the Year for 2019 and receive $1,000 CASH FOR 1ST PLACE.
This exciting one day event consists of two core sections: a standard style competition during the day for ALL AGES and graded events including a full list of Novice, D, C, and B Grade Piobaireachd and light music followed by a concert style event in the evening for those entered in the Under 21 MSR & Hornpipe Jig events.
The “NZ Young Piper of the Year” award itself will be judged across a Piobaireachd (submit 2) during the day, then in the evening an MSR (Submit 2).
Directly following the performance of their MSR, competitors will play their Hornpipe & Jig (own choice), in an effort to create an entertaining concert format which will be live streamed and heavily attended.
Please note most points for the “NZ Young Piper of the Year” award and the $1,000 prize will be taken from the Piobaireachd & MSR events only.
2019 marks the 1st year that the NZ Young Piper of the year competition will be a qualifying event for the William Boyle Foundation Award.
We look forward to seeing you in October!
