The Young Performers Awards (YPA) has long been regarded as Australia’s premier national artist development program for young Australian musicians, instrumentalists and performing artists.
Since its inception in 1944, and over its 72-year history, YPA has existed in many formats and for nearly 20 years has been presented by Symphony Australia in collaboration with the ABC.
In April 2016 the ABC and Symphony Services International (Symphony Australia) selected the Music and Opera Singers Trust (MOST) to take carriage of the Young Performers Awards. The ABC will continue to be involved as the broadcast partner promoting the next generation of Australia’s best musicians, instrumentalists and performing artists. YPA will remain a national competition and will be presented in many states around Australia.
