Rita Kinka je prva dobitnica godišnje nagrade Evropskog parlamenta „Prix femmes d`Europe” („za ženu Evrope”), nagrade za najboljeg evropskog izvođača ozbiljne muzike, koja joj je uručena u Briselu juna 1991. godine. Nosilac je „Februarske nagrade” Grada Novog Sada za 2002. godinu. Snimala je za radio i TV centre u više zemalja (Srbija, Makedonija, Slovenija, Hrvatska, Italija, Austrija, Nemačka, Belgija, Francuska, Rusija, Estonija, Češka, Slovačka, Mađarska, Rumunija, Bugarska, Engleska, Grčka, Španija, Izrael, Kanada, SAD, Australija, Tajvan). Snimila je tri kompakt-diska u izdanju kuće „Digital Media Production” (Brisel) i PGP RTS, a pre toga i jedno el-pi izdanje.  Studirala je na Akademiji umetnosti u Novom Sadu (profesori E.

Usavršavala se na „Džulijardu” u Njujorku (klasa Đerđ Šandor), koristeći stipendiju Fondacije „Đina Bahauer”, koja joj je dodeljena na Međunarodnom takmičenju „Kraljica Elizabeta” u Briselu 1987, kao „najperspektivnijem mladom umetniku”. Kroz čitavu karijeru Rita Kinka se strastveno i s ljubavlju, ali i s postupno sticanim velikim izvođačkim iskustvom, samosvojnim stilom sviranja, punim senzibilitetom i sugestivnošću „kretala” kroz odabrana djela najzahtjevnijeg klavirskog repertoara. Najnoviji resitalski projekat ostvarila je decembra 2016. u ciklusu „Urednik/umetnik u gostima” Centra za muziku Kolarčeve zadužbine u Beogradu, u kojem je specifičnim konceptom programskog oblikovanja povezala kompozicije Baha, Bramsa i Šopena, nakon čega je dobila i priznanje „izvođač godine” časopisa Muzika klasika. Takođe, prošle godine bila je na funkciji predsjednice Umetničkog saveta „Novi Sad 2021” za Evropsku prestonicu kulture.
