In November 2017, the annual international music competition "Dr. Luis Sigall" took place in Viña del Mar, Chile. With a $10.000USD First Prize and concert engagements in Chile's foremost classical music festival -Semanas Musicales de Frutillar-, it is one of only two Latin-American music competitions to be a member of the World Federation of International Music Competitions - WFIMC (http://www.wfimc.org/), making it one of the most prestigious events of its kind. Every year it rotates between 5 specialities: violin, cello, piano, voice, and guitar. Thus, the guitar edition is celebrated once every 5 years.
