The ABRSM International Young Composersâ€™ Competition is open to anyone under the age of 18 who has ever taken an ABRSM exam. Itâ€™s a great chance for you to have your music heard by our experienced panel of expert judges and possibly even performed live in a world-renowned concert hall.
Weâ€™re open to all types of music for this competition, meaning that your piece can be composed in any style. Your piece can be for any solo instrument or voice, with or without piano accompaniment, and it does have to be written down, as other musicians may perform the winning compositions in concert.
There are two age categories: 14 or under, and 15-18. Weâ€™ll award prizes to the winners and runners-up in both categories, with the winners both receiving Â£1,000, and the runners-up Â£500 each.
