Flute competitions
Leoš Janáček International Competition

Leoš Janáček International Competition

Established in 1993, by the Faculty of Music of the Janáček Academy of Performing Arts in Brno (HF JAMU), to promote the works of Leoš Janáček among young musicians. Initially, the competition was aimed at instruments and disciplines for which Janáček created several compositions: piano, violin, cello, and vocals. Since 2006 the organizers created conditions for organizing an event that would be a match for prestigious international competitions and introduced a new system of disciplines which have to be repeated every four years.
The age limit is 35.
Overall, there have been flute competitions in 2014, 2019, and 2024.
