IFAC Handa Australian Singing Competition:
Over 30 Years of Proven Success

Helping young talent to achieve their goals.

For over thirty years the IFAC Handa Australian Singing Competition has helped discover and contribute to the careers of emerging young classical and opera singers.

This has only been achieved through the generosity of the Marianne Mathy-Frisdane Estate, IFAC and the many sponsors and supporters who have provided cash prizes, study and travel opportunities needed to help young singers take the next steps in their professional singing careers. A number of our current sponsors and supporters are shown here (above).

Not surprisingly, discovering, showcasing and rewarding talent requires significant resources and ongoing help.

There are many benefits in choosing to sponsor or support the IFAC Handa Australian Singing Competition:

  • association with a premium, well-known brand
  • experienced management and events team
  • access to established social and professional contact networks in a high-value industry sector
  • tax deductibility

Become a Sponsor or Supporter

We invite you to join a family of like-minded people and organisations, dedicated to promoting excellence in the opera and classical singing performing arts.

Whether you are an individual, business or company we offer a number of sponsorship packages. A sponsor has the opportunity to invest in and further develop one of our existing scholarship or prize opportunities or we can help create an activity tailored to a specific area of interest. This may include the establishment of a new scholarship, grant or award, or access to our sponsor and participant communities, etc.

There are also non-financial ways to support the Competition in its endeavours. For example, you may choose to become a supporter by providing donations of products, professional services, gifting, or other value-in-kind options. You may also wish to provide volunteer assistance in our office or at events.
