Weinert Award for Innovation in Classical Music, the soloist prize at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, 1st prize at the Society of Recorder Players/Moeck International Solo Recorder Competition in London (both 2019), as well as at the 2014 Johann Heinrich Schmelzer and 2011 Hülsta Woodwinds International Competitions.
