The competition, held since 1968 in Warsaw, is one of the oldest national music competitions inscribed in the tradition Piano Competitions. The formula Competition has evolved over time so that the repertoire and rules of competition were gradually refined. The competition promotes young pianists. It is targeted at young Polish musicians - students of the Academy of Music and pupils of music secondary schools. Auditions will be held in public, in three stages. In the third (final) stage participants perform selected piano concert, accompanied by a symphony orchestra.
The program of the competition is different everytime. Chopin's compositions are a fixed point in the repertoire, but there are also pieces by other composers- technically demanding and complicated, causing young performers some difficulties of interpretation. Due to the difficulty of the program, it can be successfully used by the participants in many international competitions.
The jury is composed of the most distinguished pianists-educators, representing the Polish Academy of Music. Among the winners of previous editions there are many internationally famous pianists such as Janusz Olejniczak, Krystian Zimerman, Krzysztof Jablonski, Wojciech Switala, Rafal Blechacz.
