In the professional category of the competition without age limit, she proudly won the remarkable Platinum Award. She also won the Platinum Award in the Modern B 17+ age category. Commendably, Guangwen also received the Outstanding Interpretation Special Award at the PicaSchubert Competition.

Throughout this category's history, only a handful of young musicians have won first prize due to the extremely high competition level, highly accomplished contestants, and rigorous judging standards. KuangWen Chiang's triumph in this competition further solidifies her position as a rising star in the world of French horn performance and highlights her ability to excel in performing challenging contemporary repertoire.
