Compose Aotearoa! is a new national initiative to stimulate the creation of new and diverse New Zealand music for choirs. Designed as an annual competition facilitated by Choirs Aotearoa New Zealand Trust, Compose Aotearoa! will be a rewarding pathway for young as well as established composers to produce new work.
- Open category – prize $2,000
- Composers aged 25 years and under – prize $2,000
- Waiata Tira with substantial Te Reo Māori content (70%-100%) – prize $2,000
An additional prize of $1,000 will be awarded to a category winner, with an invitation to join one of the national choirs as Composer in Residence to progress the work for performance.
Category winners will become SOUNZ Composers. A SOUNZ composer has a profile page on www.sounz.org.nz which lists their works, commissions, performances, films/audio, etc. and provides worldwide visibility.
Deadline for submission is 5.00pm November 10, 2020 with winners announced November 30.
