Each year since 1980 the Slovene Music Artists Association bestows the annual Betetto Award for the best original music achievements. It can be awarded to a composer, a jazz musician or a brass band. Among the recent recipients are Marina Horak and Trutamora Slovenica in 2008, Jernej Brence and Cveto Kobal in 2009, and Ondina Otta Klasinc in 2011.

The Betetto Award is named after a composer, opera singer, and a musical pedagogue Julij Betetto (1885–1963). His musical career was established through the collaboration of the Vienna State Opera (Wiener Staatsoper) and the Slovene National Theatre Opera and Ballet Ljubljana where he worked as the head of the opera house. In 1961 Betetto received a Prešeren Award for his life's work.
