The International Allan Pettersson Prize

The International Allan Pettersson Prize is awarded to a person, organisation or company that has made a significant contribution to Allan Pettersson's music. It is awarded by the board of the Allan Pettersson Foundation (“the Foundation”) and cannot be applied for. The International Allan Pettersson Prize is intended to encourage continued work with Allan Pettersson's music and also inspire others to do the same.
