There are many many many piano competitions.

If you want to get to know some of the major ones, you could always try to do a search.

You can get an application i think, and then you send in midis of you audition i think. then if you get chosen, you get to play at arectial for a round. then you play a schubert sonata. then you play a quartet or something. then you play a concerto. Thats if you get that far.

There's a Russian lady who has a piano competition here in New Brunswick.

It's Ludmila Knezkova-Hussey piano competition. I don't know if it's world famous, but a lot of people internationally participate.
