This competition brings to the winner, together with some financial reward, also the possibility of taking part in important concerts. Petr Ožana from the last year got a chance to play on the gala concert in Prague´s Lucerna Hall and started the fruitful collaboration with the famous Prague´s theatre,  Semafor.

The objective of this competition is to give chance to talented pianists to show their potential, indifferently to their sex, age or education and also to bring the live music in public places as it was years ago. This is one of the aims of the Petrof company.
