Young Composers Award

The International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) is pleased to announce that distinguished composers Tomoko Fukui (Japan), Javier Hagen (Switzerland), and Eva Lopszyc (Argentina) have been chosen to serve as the international jury for the 2014 Young Composers Award which is to be held as part of the ISCM World Music Days in Wroclaw, Poland this coming October.

Founded in 1922, the International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM) is a network of more than 60 organizations in over 50 countries. For over 90 years now, it has served as the premier forum for the advancement, dissemination and interchange of new music from around the world. The annual ISCM World New Music Days festival is the principle vehicle through which ISCM pursues its mission. Organized each year by a different host, the festival presents music from each of our member sections, showcasing the incredible diversity of musical practice in our time. Recent festivals have taken place in Hong Kong, Lithuania, Sweden, Australia, Croatia and Belgium.

At each ISCM World Music Days Festival an international jury, constituted from the ISCM membership, carefully considers all works performed during the festival written by composers age 35 or under, and selects a single composer to receive the ISCM Young Composers Award. The winner is granted a monetary prize and a commission for a new piece to be performed at a future World Music Days Festival. Through this award, ISCM is making a meaningful and lasting contribution to the depth and breadth of contemporary music repertoire, as well as providing support and encouragement to the most promising emerging composers of our time. This year, there will be twenty-nine eligible pieces from all over the world that the jury will have to consider, and the announcement of the selected composer will take place at the conclusion of the evening concert on 12 October 2014.

This is one of the premier international awards for emerging composers, and ISCM is very pleased to have such accomplished composers serving as jurors.
