If you are not a finalist this year, please remember that the contests
are not yet over. The American Prize reserves the right to award
Honorable Mentions and Citations for Special Achievement to any
contestant, regardless of final placement. TAP has honored a
number of semi-finalists and quarter finalists in the past--to recognize
a unique talent or focus, unusual repertoire, vital programming or
outreach. Citations and Honorable Mentions are usually awarded at
the same time as winners and runners-up, but can be presented at any
time up to the last winners' announcement of the contest year.
All contestants are reminded they are responsible for the viability of
their online links to audition materials. Those links must remain active
until the end of the contest year.
Questions, or to make us aware of any misprints in the listings below,
please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
invite finalists to make the most of their selection by announcing
it on social media, and including a link to
this announcement on their website or blog. A sample announcement may be
