BBC Young Composer competition 2020

BBC Young Composer competition 2020

Thursday, 11 June 2020, 5.00pm

The BBC is calling on young composers across the country to enter its prestigious BBC Young Composer competition 2020.

The BBC is seeking musically-minded students aged 12-18 of all technical abilities, backgrounds, and musical influences to submit an original composition and recording. Any genre, any instrument, and any method of composing is welcome - music-makers may not think of themselves as a composer, but if they love to create their own original music then the BBC wants to hear from them. All compositions are judged anonymously and assessed on their compositional idea, creativity and originality.

Winners will be given the incredible opportunity to participate in a tailored development programme, working with a mentor composer on a project with the BBC Concert Orchestra which will be performed and broadcast in a special young composers’ concert at the 2021 BBC Proms. All entrants will also be offered priority booking to the Proms Weekender; an event for young musicians during the 2020 Proms season featuring young artist showcases, interactive workshops with Proms artists and ticket offers to the weekend’s concerts.
