CMNZ Commissioning Prize


Chamber Music New Zealand invites entries for the inaugural CMNZ Commissioning Prize.

CMNZ is looking to commission a New Zealand composer who has not been commissioned by CMNZ before to write a new piece to be toured by a group in the 2022 Regional Series. CMNZ will work with the successful composer and the ensembles on the 2022 roster to find a collaboration that is pleasurable and beneficial to all.

Award: An 8-10 minute commission premiered and toured by a group in the CMNZ 2022 Regional Series. The fee will align with CANZ guidelines.

Eligibility: The prize will be awarded to a composer who has not been commissioned by CMNZ before. New Zealand composers, including NZ-born composers now based overseas and composers born overseas now living in Aotearoa will be considered.
