On 24 April 2019, the Jury composed of Krzysztof Baculewski, Mieczysław Kominek, Tadeusz Wielecki and Sławomira Żerańska-Kominek awarded the Annual Prizes of the Polish Composers' Union for 2019.
The Polish Composers' Union Annual Award has been granted since 1949: until 1991 for honoring artists and performers for their outstanding achievements in the field of music, and since 1991 – "Polish composers, performers, musicologists, pedagogues and organizers of musical life for outstanding achievements".
This year's laureates are Stanisław Krupowicz and Teresa Malecka. Professor Stanisław Krupowicz was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award underlining the importance of his compositions for the Polish electroacoustic and computer music scene as well as organizational and promotional activities in this field. Professor Teresa Malecka received a Lifetime Achievement Award in the field of musicology and theory of music, with particular emphasis on her contribution to the foundation of the Krakow School of the Theory of Music.
