The American Pianists Association nurtures the artistic growth of America's top young pianists by focusing on creative expression and career development. Their largest and most prestigious support is given through a biennial competition known as the American Pianists Awards.  Since their founding in 1979, the American Pianists Association has supported 48 winners.

The American Pianists Awards are held every two years to discover the best aspiring young American jazz or classical pianists. The unique and innovative competitions span 13 months and provide a platform to deeply engage musical artists in a variety of creative formats and settings. The competitions are open to American citizens between the ages of 18 and 30 and by nomination only. Winners receive a cash prize, concert touring, public relations, a recording contract, professional development and two years of career management, making this the most prestigious award for an American pianist.
