This composition contest is intended for young composers (30 or under) who are writing music for concert band.

Composers should keep this audience in mind for their submission to this contest.
Submissions should be 3-5 min in length and be written around a Grade 4. The piece will be premiered at the annual convention of the Association of Concert Bands to be held in Santa Fe, New Mexico April 27-May 2, 2021 and the winner will receive $2000 in prize money and up to $1000 travel allotment to attend the premier.
