In 1977, Jon Laukvik was awarded both the First Prize and the Bach Prize in the International Organ Competition in Nüremberg. The same year, he was also a prize winner in the International Organ Competition sponsored by the Assembly of the German Protestant Chruch in Berlin.

In 1980, he was named professor at the State School of Music and Interpretative Art in Stuttgart where he teaches organ and historical keyboard instruments.
