SPECIAL AWARD “Mila Rakanović”

Since 2019, Sarajevo International Guitar Festival is giving an annual special award „Mila Rakanović“ which will be given to the teacher/professor of guitar in Bosnia and Herzegovina, who’s student wins the most points in one of the first four categories of the SIGF Competition. If two or more competitors have the same number of points, the advantage goes to the teacher/professor of the competitor in the higher category.

The „Mila Rakanović“ Award is a diploma and 200 BAM.
This way, Sarajevo International Guitar Festival is expressing gratitude and respect to professor Mila Rakanović, who popularized classical guitar in Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina in the second half of the 20th century, and who helped in development of many today’s  well-known artists and pedagogues throughout the world.
