The powerful portrayal of pianist David Helfgott in Shine (cert 15) has not only filled audiences with admiration for the artist himself, but also reminded them of the beauty and passion which can be inspired by classical music. Here's a chance to develop your own musical talents and win your very own Yamaha piano as well as a copy of Shine on video before it's available to buy in the shops.

Shine will be available to rent on video from 9 September. To mark this release, The Eye has teamed up with Miramax Home Entertainment and Yamaha Music, the world-leading piano manufacturer, to offer classical music lovers a great package of prizes.

We have a first prize of a beautiful acoustic piano worth pounds 2,999. The Yamaha C108 upright piano (right) features elegant detailing and fine craftmanship, with a mahogany satin-finish. Made in the UK, this piano features a solid spruce sound-board for high tonal quality and Yamaha's unique patented action for greater expression and control. David Helfgott plays a Yamaha concert grand piano at home.

Our overall winner, as well as winning the piano, will also receive the last pair of available tickets for the David Helfgott performance at the Royal Albert Hall on 20 October, where he will play the Rach 3 for the first time since his breakdown. A copy of Shine on video and the movie CDsoundtrack complete the first prize package. Ten runners-up will each receive Shine on video and a copy of the CD soundtrack.
