    I was in the final of an orchestral competition a few years back, but as runner-up all I got as a prize was a recording of the performance, a night in a resonable hotel and a lot of free beers from the band. To be honest, my main concern would be the amount of effort needed to compose a piece for this level of competition. I'd need to be certain of getting it published or of several performances to make it worthwhile writing even if it didn't win. Wheras, the next three pieces I'll be working on won't make much money, if any, but will be guarenteed performances and all the experience that comes with them. I don't write bespoke pieces for competitions these days - I write stuff to get performed. Whitacre does neglect to mention that competions don't fund themselves without a fee unless there is a public body or some serious philanthropy behind them. I can only imagine what Magnus Lindberg charges for his adjudication services.
