Doe mee aan het 2024 Compositie Contest

Word sound track awards, Film Festival Gent

Young composers are the future of the film music industry, but rarely get the chance to showcase their talent to a (non-)professional (live) audience. Therefore, the World Soundtrack Academy each year offers screen composers under the age of 36 the chance to participate in the WSA Film Music Composition Contest and to win the Sabam Award for Best Original Composition by a Young Composer (worth €2.500) at the World Soundtrack Awards Ceremony & Concert.

2024 Composition Contest

Registrations for the 2024 Composition Contest are now open.

Composers under the age of 36 can now register for the WSA Composition Contest. The excerpt for this years contest is from the film THE WITCHES (1990) from Nicolas Roeg. Upon registration and payment of €75, participants will receive a confirmation email with a link to the excerpt and the submission form.

Participants are invited to show their skills as a composer for screen by writing a symphonic score for the selected film excerpt. The jury will choose three finalists, whose compositions will be performed at the annual World Soundtrack Awards Ceremony and Concert, after which the winner of the Sabam Award for Best Original Composition by a Young Composer will be announced. The finalists will attend the WSA Film Music Days (15 – 17 October 2024) at Film Fest Gent and meet professionals from the international film music industry.
