Link to a competition

Sorry.  I didn't mean any offense.  It's the sort of thing that would happen to me, and if I can't laugh over it, I cry over it.  Have you had a hard time finding contests to apply too?  I know I see a lot of them that I'm too old for.  I've just stopped looking at them, because I never seem to meet the qualifications.

So did I. We don't have any composition contests here because there aren't enough composers that are not from the pop/rock genre.

For some reason every time I see a contest here it's an American-only contest. I don't see how the fact I wasn't born in America should prevent me from entering a composition contest.

I did try to enter this one because every time I have this false hope that they won't ask for my home address.

Gotcha.  Maybe that means other composers are having the same problem and you could suggest to a local music group that they organize a competition?  In the age of the internet, it's not expensive to get an application out into the world.  It's just a question of people being willing to take the time to set it up and review submissions.  That wouldn't help you win a competition, since if you suggest the idea, you probably shouldn't apply, but being part of the panel that set something like that up and judged entries would certainly be something you could add to your music resume.
