World Online Piping & Drumming Championships for Fall 2020 Official Results
We received more than 1000 entries in 80 events, including solo piping, side drumming, tenor drumming, and bass drumming. Our competitors came from 22 countries on six continents. Competitors submitted video recordings of their performances and were evaluated by our international panel of world-class judges. We provided over $900 in scholarships for entry to pipers and drummers who otherwise would have been unable to participate due to financial hardship.
We added two new exciting band events, including one for traditional pipe band instruments (bagpipes and drums) and a Freestyle event that allowed other instruments, dancers, and other performers. Bands could record their performances together or record them separately and edit them together.
The World Online Piping & Drumming Championships is the world's first and only piping and drumming competition in the world to publish a complete a record of the entire competition, including every performance, every result, and every judge's comment. We hope that these excellent musical performances and detailed comments from our world-class judges will be a lasting and valuable resource for education and entertainment.
