The following year he won the Emilio Pujol Guitar Competition in Sassari, Italy, as well as the German Andrés Segovia in Velbert. Also in 2004, he represented Croatia in the European Music Prize for Youth in Dubrovnik and won first prize as well as the Croatian Composers’ Union prize for the performance of a work by a Croatian composer.

Petrit Ceku was the only guitarist in the Ferdo Livadiç International Young Music Artists’ competition in Samobor, Croatia, and won first prize by a unanimous decision of the jury.

He was awarded the Silver Medal in The Parkening Competition in Malibu, California and second prize in the Belgian Printemps de la guitare in Charleroi in 2006.
