The New York Composers Circle is pleased to announce its third annual composition competition, open to composers of all ages who live in the New York metropolitan area, other than NYCC members. The winning composition will be performed at one of the NYCC’s concerts during the 2009-2010 season, and the winner will also receive one year’s free membership in the NYCC.

Please submit no more than one score, together with a CD (if available), of a solo or chamber ensemble work preferably 6-12 minutes in length, but in no event more than 15 minutes, and scored for not more than four performers on instruments not requiring purchase, rental or cartage costs. The work should not have been previously premiered. Include in your covering letter a brief bio, a brief program note for your work, and contact information (phone, e-mail and mailing addresses). All submissions not accompanied by a stamped, self-addressed envelope will be discarded after the winner is announced.  The deadline for receipt is Friday, May 15th.
