Our Inaugural Year: 2014
The mission of The Australian Cello Awards (ACA) is to provide opportunities for Australian and New Zealand cellists – to advance their careers as orchestral cellists, chamber music artists or soloists.
The Awards feature the Allen-Evans Scholarship, valued up to AUD $15,000, as well as a number of other scholarships, awards and prizes specifically designed to help the career development of cellists aged between 18 and 30 years.

The Australian Cello Awards is managed and wholly owned by the Music & Opera Singers Trust Limited (MOST®), a not-for-profit organisation which promotes excellence in the arts, music, education and community development sectors by creating and managing programmes and activities to recognise and develop creative potential and provide career opportunities for individuals.
