National Indian Music Competition

The National Indian Music Competition (NIMC) is one of the three national music competitions organised by the National Arts Council in Singapore. First organised in 1998, the Competition has the following main aims:

  • Develop the performing skills of musicians in Singapore
  • Improve musical standards
  • Identify potential music talents

In addition, the Competition aims to be a platform for musical excellence, providing young musicians with opportunities to perform in a competitive situation in front of an international jury. The competition is open to all Singapore citizens and permanent residents.
