About The National Organ Competition
The National Organ Competition was established to encourage and reward a high standard of organ
playing. The Competition is open to Canadian organists, permanent residents and
non-Canadian organists studying toward a degree or diploma in Canada,
who are under the age of 30 and are members of the Royal Canadian College of Organists. Previous first
prize winners are not eligible.
The next competition will take place July 1 and 5, 2023 in conjunction with Organ Festival Canada. A maximum of six
competitors will be chosen from the preliminary round to advance to the
live rounds, where they will compete for $8,500 in prizes.
