BigPrizes

Welcome to pipes|drums BigPrizes database!

The piping and drumming world revolves around competition, yet until now there has been no central repository of data from the years and years of major events.

Have fun looking up the winners of the most significant solo and band competitions in history and check to see won what when and, in some cases, with which tunes.

BigPrizes needs your help, though. So please do contact us with any insights, corrections and new data that you may have so that we can continually improve our database to share with the entire piping and drumming world now and for generations to come.

Enjoy!
