The Montenegro International Guitar Competition was founded in 2006 under the auspices of Niksic Guitar Festival and the patronage of the Niksic Municipality. In the recent 11 years, it has been established as a significant art-professional and international event, with the aim of promoting the highest achievements in contemporary performance of classical guitarists. Due to its rich prize pool, the competition has been recognized as an important point in the career development of young classical guitarists. The winners and award-winning participants of the previous competition editions came from all over the world and today they are the leading guitarists of the younger generation. Until recently, Montenegro International Guitar Competition had been the only professional competition for classical music in Montenegro and one of the few in the world broadcast live by RTV Atlas until 2016, and National Television RTCG from 2017.

In 2018 the competition will take place in two cities – Tivat and Podgorica and will include categories for solo guitar, chamber ensembles with guitar, and, for the first time, acoustic and electric guitar. Competition is organized by NGO Anagastum Guitar Society and Montenegrin Music Center.
