How to apply

The 17th International Edvard Grieg Piano Competition 2021 is postponed to 2022. New application deadline is 20 April, 2022, at 23:59 CEST.

More information about the application requirements will follow.

The 2022 competition will be held in Bergen, Norway, from 26 August - 3 September 2022.


Pianists born between 1987-2005 will be able to apply, and the repertoire will be the same. Recordings may not be older than 20 April 2019. In this way, we will not exclude applicants who were eligible for the postponed 2020/2021 competitions, and if you have already made your recording, this can still be used. 
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you all to the 17th Grieg Competition in 2022!
