Inspire Young Composers’ Competition 2015

 “The BBC’s long-established and justly celebrated Inspire Competition is the UK’s leading event for young composers – and a wonderful opportunity for musically curious people aged 12 to 18” Judith Weir CBE, Inspire Competition judge 2015

The BBC Proms Inspire Young Composers’ Competition provides what most composers only dream of; the chance to have your music performed by professional musicians at the BBC Proms and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Winners also receive a BBC commission for a high-profile performance and are mentored throughout the process by a professional composer.

“Hearing my music broadcast on BBC Radio 3 for the first time…it’s a moment I’ll never forget!” Grace Mason, winner of the 2013 Inspire Competition (Senior category)

All competition entrants will be given priority booking for Inspire Days during the 2015 Proms season: free workshops where you can create music alongside professional musicians and like-minded young composers from all over the UK. Previous workshops have explored electro-acoustic composition, film music and everything in between.

Best of all, it’s all free! If you’re aged 12 to 18 and write your own music, what are you waiting for? Enter the competition and see where it takes you…
