  1. YC Competition: Winter 2017 “…tell me a story…” Hello all, and welcome to the next YC competition! What better way to start off the new year than with some healthy competition? I’m looking forward to great new works from all of you and hopefully, more of you, too! To celebrate the new year, I thought we should all write some stories! We’re going to be writing very programmatic music for this season and I can’t wait to be taken on so many journeys! I’ve kept the theme very general this time so we can see all sorts of takes on so many different life experiences, biographies, fables, adventures, and more! More than anything, this should be a pretty calm and fun competition amongst a community. Eligibility to compete will remain the same: ELIGIBILITY: *You must be a member of the Young Composers forum in order to enter. Sign ups will be in the comments below. *There will again be no limits to instrumentation. *The minimum length for this competition will be the same as last time: 6 minutes. The maximum will also stay the same at 20 minutes. *You must have some sort of audio rendition accompanying your work, otherwise your entry will be disqualified. *If you volunteer to be a judge, you may not enter as a contest participant. *Entrants should have an intermediate understanding of engraving and orchestration… this is another major focus of the competition. The rules, however, are not: RULES AND SCORING: 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). 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). Submit an audio recording of your work for the judges to follow the score with. You’ll be graded on audio quality (/10). TOTAL: /115 DATES: Entry Intent: March 10th Entry Deadline: March 19th Judge’s Scores: March 23nd Results: March 24rd Signal your intent to have an entry ready by leaving a comment to this thread. Good luck to all; I look forward to reading and hearing your stories! JUDGES: 1. danishali903 2. Monarcheon ENTRANTS: 1. Noah Brode 2. Austenite 3. Seni-G 4. Ken320 5. Jotaa45 6. RefinedRedneck 7.
