The amateur edition of the Chopin Piano Competition is organized by the Chopin Society of Warsaw. It is aimed at music lovers from all over the world, for whom playing the piano is a passion rather than a way of earning a living. Despite being much younger than other prominent competitions for amateur pianists (for example, the International Piano Competition for Outstanding Amateurs in Paris), it has already attracted a significant number of top-level participants. This year's event is the fifth edition of the competition. The jury includes many distinguished Polish pianists, teachers, conductors, as well as composers.
