Online Piping Competition Update

Just a few days ago, we announced the world's first-ever online piping competition. In these few days, the response has been incredible. Entries have come in for all the events and grades from around the world, including from the U.S., Canada, Denmark, Belgium, Germany, Australia, Russia, New Zealand, and the U.K.

Each event is limited to only 20 competitors, so send your entry in today!

I've received additional interest from pipers who are not interested in competing against other pipers, but they are interested in receiving a comment sheet from the judges.  So, today I'm excited to announce the addition of a new, first-of-its-kind ungraded, non-competitive, evaluation-only event.

Special Event #13: For this event, you will enter and submit your recording just like the other events. Your performance will be evaluated by a judge who will write a complete judging sheet for you, but you will not be compared to any other pipers. This event will have no official prize winners, but if your goal is to get good, honest, positive feedback from one of the world's top pipers... you win!

Enter now!

This is event is open to pipers of any ability level, from beginner to advanced. You may submit any tune, except for Piobaireachd. So, marches, strathspeys, reels, jigs, hornpipes... you name it!

We thrilled to have two top pipers on board as judges:  Alan Bevan and Andrew P. Hayes -- both world class pipers and Gold Medal winners.  Additional judges to be announced soon!
