Composition Wales 2021
Applications are now open for Composition: Wales 2021.
Guidelines & Entry Form
The scheme has been run by BBC NOW since 2010 in association with Ty Cerdd, Vale of Glamorgan Festival, Welsh Music Guild and Composers of Wales with the aim of showcasing the work and talent of Composers across Wales.
Composition: Wales might look a bit different this year, but BBC NOW and partners are looking forward to receiving applications. From all applications, six-eight participants will be selected to take part in the scheme.
BBC NOW welcomes submissions from composers who can meet the following criteria:
– Born or living in Wales
– Over 18
– Submitting unpublished work
What’s the process this year?
The selected participants will have an initial ‘live’ workshop session with the musicians. This is highly likely to be via Zoom due to current restrictions.
The participants will undertake several professional development sessions in the lead up to a final concert in 2021 including sessions with members of BBC NOW, orchestra members, BBC NOW Composers in Association, and panel members. These sessions are highly likely to be conducted via Zoom.
The maximum accepted duration for all submissions for Composition: Wales 2021 is 8 minutes. Please note that scores of a shorter duration are very welcome.
