League of Composers/ISCM 2017 Composers' Competition
$25 per work
August 1, 2017
$1000 and a New York City performance*, possible nomination to the next World Music Days
All composers are eligible to enter. Only US composers can be selected to represent ISCM at the World Music Days.
Works for solo instrument, small ensemble, or any combination up to a chamber orchestra may be submitted. Works featuring voice, choir, and/or electronic media will also be accepted. Works should be no longer than 20 minutes in duration. There are no stylistic limitations. The instrumentation limit for a guaranteed performance is eight (8) players.
Our submission process is entirely electronic. Since judging is done anonymously, all traces of the composer's name should be removed from submitted score and audio. No pseudonym is needed. If the work you wish to submit cannot be submitted through our online submission process, please contact Luke Dahn for assistance at email@example.com.
The judging panel will judge the competition during the summer of 2017 and endeavor to complete the process no later than September 1, 2017. If the judges choose more than one winner, the monetary award will be divided evenly among the winners, and each composition will receive a performance in New York. Winners must be willing to provide conductor’s score and parts in a timely manner at his or her cost. Questions should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
