Composition Competitions

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of good composition competitions to enter? Preferably I would like them to be free and chorally oriented. Are competitions even worth entering anyway???

Thanks for the help!!

Depends. What do you want to get out of the competiitons? Recordings? Performances? Bragging Rights? What?

Morivou, I think I'd just like to get experience from them and I'd like to get my music heard by more people. That being said.... recordings and performances would be nice!

I suggest joining American Composers Forum. Their list of competitions is fairly comprehensive of the more famous competitions.

And what would you suggest to those of us who happen to not be American? :hmmm:

Theres also http://www.scottishmusiccentre.com/competitions/ and http://www.muziekcentrumnederland.nl/en/contemporary/internationaleconcoursen/composition-competitions/ You could also just google 'call for scores'. I did that the other night and there are piles of ensembles around the world with open calls going, I think there was about 5 choral ones I came across.

If I undestand, "free" means no entry fee, right?

The best website to check is www.composerssite.com

Good luck!
