WINTER 2017, Submissions Link

Recommended Posts

Please post LINKS to your submission for the Winter 2017 Story Competition here. Your deadline to post is March 18th.
1. Post your piece in the appropriate forum.
2. Place the link into this thread.
Here are the guidelines, as a checklist for you. 

RULES AND SCORING:

  1. Submit a score that represents a story of your choosing. This can be about your own life, someone else's life, a well known story, or anything in between. It simply needs an arc, as does your music. This can be loosely interpreted; one can have many movements with a portion of the story in each, or one long movement or overture that tells the whole thing. You will be judged on orchestration (/25), the ability to tell the composer’s intent through clear programmatic writing (/30), and the clear development of thematic material (/25). Score quality is also taken into account (/15).
  2. Submit a written version of the story with words. This is not optional. This written piece should explain each portion of the music and what is intended on being told. This needn’t be so incredibly detailed, but should offer unique insight on the composer’s vision. Even well-known stories require explanation (/10).
  3. Submit an audio recording of your work for the judges to follow the score with. You’ll be graded on audio quality (/10).

Any chance of the deadline pushed back to the weekend?

 

Uhhhh sure. That's fine. I'll give the other people who've posted here already the time and chance to edit their stuff if necessary too.

Just a quick note that I have revised the score to my submission thanks to the extended deadline, but have made no changes to the audio file. Thanks!

I'm really sorry to announce that I have given up. Once again, it seems pretty obvious that I won't be able to finish on time, despite the major effort I've given to this work (one of my most beloved, BTW) during the last few weeks. I have just too many tasks at hand.

Good luck, everyone!

:( :( :( I hope it comes out okay in the end, Austenite!
