Albin Hagström Memorial Award

The Albin Hagström Memorial Award (Swedish: Albin Hagströms Minnespris) was a prize that was awarded between 1997[1][2] and 2006 by the Royal Swedish Academy of Music in memory of Albin Hagström, a well-known accordionist and accordion maker from Älvdalen and the founder of the Hagström company.[2]

The award was given to an accordionist or guitarist, and the prizewinner was selected by the Kärstin Hagström-Heikkinen Music Award Fund.[1]

Since 2007, several scholarships have been awarded to accordionists and guitarists in popular music. The applicant cannot be older than 35 and must be a Swedish citizen.[3] The scholarships are only awarded to individuals.
