Students aged 12 to 18 are invited to enter this year’s BBC Young Composer competition. Applicants can submit original compositions or recordings from any musical style or genre, from hip-hop and electronic to classical and film scores.
The submissions can be written for any instrumentation or method of composing.
Winners will be offered the opportunity to be mentored by a composer on a project with the BBC Concert Orchestra, culminating in a performance or broadcast.
The competition – previously known as the BBC Proms Inspire competition – has been running since 1998 with previous winners including Shiva Feshareki, Kate Whitley and Mark Simpson.
Entries close at 5pm on Monday 28 June. Visit bbc.co.uk/youngcomposer for more details on how to enter.
