An Original Piobaireachd Music Competition sponsored by Shasta Piping Society and the Burley Bagpipe Company. The competition information was announced on the web in September 2016, with a submission deadline of April 1, 2017. Twenty-six original pibrochs were submitted from seven countries. The adjudicators were Mike Cusack, Bill Livingstone and Robert Wallace who awarded the top prizes for the following three pieces,

  1. Hin o dro ha darado
  2. Angus McDonald of the Great Divide
  3. The Knights of Glin

The pieces were provided to the judges with no identifying information on the written scores or the audio recordings to ensure anonymous consideration.  Once the judges decided on the winning tunes under blind cover, the individual identifiers were sent along to the SPS, and the corresponding winner's names were then announced.  Stephen Rooklidge discussed organizing the event in an interview with J. David Hester (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3).
