You can now register for the Gaudeamus Award 2020. Composers of any nationality or background who were born after 13 September 1984 may enter their works. Works may already have been performed, but must be composed no more than 3 years ago.

Four composers will be nominated for the award. The nominees will be part of the Gaudeamus Muziekweek 2020 (9-13 September). On the final night of the festival the winner of the Award will be chosen by an independent jury. The price consists of a commission worth €5,000 for a new composition to be premiered at a future edition of the Gaudeamus Muziekweek. The nominees’ main entries for the competition as well as additional submitted pieces will be performed during the festival. They will also be commissioned to develop a new piece especially for the festival.

Please carefully read the information and the terms before submitting.
