This thread is only for entrants for the summer competition to post their entries.  If you have comments/questions/concerns, please post them on the competition announcement thread: 



2. Upload your music as if you would in one of the appropriate composition category threads (orchestral/large ensembles, chamber, choral, etc.)

3. Copy the link and paste it on this thread.



I also have reposted the scoring guideline below for reference:

  • Piece's relation to chosen Shakespeare work - pretty self explanatory:  /15 points
  • Structure and coherence - also pretty self explanatory:  /15 points
  • Instrumentation/Orchestration - how well did you write for your instrument(s), etc.:  /10 points
  • Quality of the Score/8 points
  • Audio Quality/2 points

(Points above [in total out of 50 pts] are given at the judges' discretion: for instance, with "Structure and coherence", an entrant can be given anywhere between 0-15pts.)

  • 5 BONUS points will be given (at the discretion of the judges) if entrant provides a PDF program of their work.


The deadline to submit is August 15th, 11:59 PM EST. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Good Luck to Everyone!

Just wondering what will happen when the next entry is uploaded in this same thread...

HINT: Quite possibly all entries will automatically play at once, resulting in an unglorious, unintended chaos.


I didn't even think of that....my bad! 

Perhaps it will be best if the entries are not posted directly here and are just linked, like how Christian did it.

Way later than 11:59 in my time zone... surprisingly I was done with the actual music only an hour after the deadline. It was the darned program notes that took me so long. Anyway I don't know if you guys wanna disqualify my entry or what but I don't really mind because I'm just looking forward to having someone hear what I cooked up.

When is the deadline for reviewing the submissions?

Well, I don't believe there is such a thing as a "judges' deadline", but I'd take Danish on his word and hope the results are in towards the end of August.
