  1. SUMMER COMPETITION - 2016 Hello! As part of the website's recent "makeover", we have decided to bring back the seasonal competitions after a hiatus. As of now, these competitions will be held on a seasonal quarterly basis, each based on a specific theme/topic. If anyone has suggestions for future competitions, please send me a private message on this site. As some of you know, this year marks the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death. For those of you unfamiliar with Shakespeare, he was a renowned poet and playwright who wrote many of the English language's greatest works, including 38 stage plays (which include the famous plays Macbeth, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, etc.) and 154 sonnets. Many composers have been inspired by Shakespeare's works and adapted his works into musical forms. Some examples include: Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture, Verdi's operas Macbeth and Othello, Prokofiev's ballet Romeo and Juliet, and many more. As you probably guessed by now, the competition's theme is Shakespeare! Please read the specific instructions below regarding topic, scoring, etc. Topic: Compose a piece based on something Shakespeare wrote. This could include incidental music to his stage plays, music inspired by any of his works, set his poems/sonnets/etc. to music. Guidelines: Anyone who is a member of this site is allowed to enter. (Though we'll have an unofficial sign up at the bottom) No restrictions on instrumentation - it can be for a solo piano, full orchestra with chorus, or anything in between The minimum length of the piece is 5 minutes, maximum up to 20 minutes Piece can be in multiple movements, but overall maximum time must not exceed 20 minutes You have to submit audio (midi, live, whatever) AND a score to be eligible for scoring by the deadline- NO EXCUSES If you decide to volunteer as a judge, you may NOT enter as a participant! Scoring Criteria - The point system is arbitrary at the moment and might be amended later on 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. DEADLINE: While I don't have a specific deadline at the moment, I WOULD like everything (including getting judges' scores and awarding winners) by September 1st. SO, I will set an arbitrary deadline of AUGUST 15, 2016. We will have an unofficial signup just to gauge interest. If you are interested in entering as a participant, please state your interest by replying to this thread. If you don't feel like competing, you can also sign up to be a judge for this competition. Since there will only 3-4 open positions for being a judge, we'll have a first-come-first-serve rule. SO, if you have any questions and/or concerns, please don't hesitate to voice them below in this thread, or contact me. Have fun composing and good luck to those who participate! PLEASE DO NOT POST MUSIC ON THIS THREAD. I will make another thread where we'll gather all the entries.
