Following a process overseen by three separate juries, the Honens Prize Laureate is awarded $100,000 (CAD) and a comprehensive artistic and career development program which includes debut recitals in some of the world’s most renowned concert halls, residencies, recordings, and other significant career-building opportunities. The triennial competition is augmented by an annual four-day festival which provides meaningful community outreach with a balanced program of high-quality free and ticketed educational and concert events. The Honens Festival was named 2015 Festival of the Year at Tourism Calgary’s White Hat Awards in recognition of Honens’ efforts to enrich Calgary’s community spirit and raise its profile as a tourism destination on national and global scales.
