What do you think is the purpose of competitions? Can they help establish a career? Do you think they are necessary to do? Also, what do you think the judges look for? Good technique, understanding of the music or maybe a bit of both?

Big competitions are not necessary to establish a career. Yuja Wang, Lang Lang, Evgeny Kissin...

OTOH competitions can definitely launch a career. Trifonov, Pollini, Ashkenazy...

The big competitions can give a pianist exposure, but they must be able to capitalise on this.
