We are always searching out new music from talented Composers who we can support and promote by publishing their work in our portfolio and launching them onto the market.
So, we are very excited to launch this free-to-enter competition to offer five Composers of Organ Music the opportunity to have their work published and promoted worldwide by Tim Knight Music in an anthology called 'Organ Music for Quiet Moments'. See below for details and how to enter...
Competition details and how to enter:
The piece should follow the set theme of 'Organ Music for Quiet Moments' and not exceed 3 minutes.
The piece must be suitable for an Organist of moderate standard and for use in a Church setting primarily, but can also be suitable for a concert or recital setting.
The piece must be new music and not have previously been published or available elsewhere. However, it is acceptable to submit a piece based on an existing (public domain) tune – e.g, a chorale prelude, hymn or plaint as long as the material is based on liturgical music.
Entries should be anonymous... ie, the scores not marked with the Composer's name to preserve impartiality. Any scores marked with the Composer's name will not be considered. Obviously, the winning scores will be reformatted with the addition of the Composer's name for publication.
Entries should be sent in a PDF format (and MP3 recording if available) together with a completed application form to firstname.lastname@example.org by the closing date. Entries are limited to one piece per person.
Please email us at email@example.com for an application form.
The closing date for entries is midnight on Wednesday 15th July 2020.
Five winning entries will be chosen and be published (in printed and PDF formats) by Tim Knight Music under a standard publishing contract with royalties on sales payable on a pro rata basis.
In addition, one First Prize place will be awarded, with the winner receiving £150.00 cash prize. A recording will be made of the winner's piece and be the first to be released with the anthology.
The winning 5 entries will be announced on our website and published during August 2020 and released for sale in September 2020.
If you have any questions or queries, please just get in touch.... otherwise we look forward to receiving your entry! Please feel free to pass this information on....
Please note: This competition is open to any Composers worldwide, but you must be over 18 to enter.
PS..... We offer composition lessons and composition mentoring if you are a budding Composer who would like to further your career and need some encouragement, inspiration and guidance... find out more at https://www.timknightmusic.com/book-online
