We are in our 3rd awesome year of the Violettes Youth Songwriter Contest and Composition Competition for ages 10 thru 18(still in high school).
Submit on-line with score and recording MP-3 or You Tube.
The competition has 2 separate divisions - Songwriter and Composition, each divided into Junior (10 thru 13)and Senior (14 thru 18) for judging.
Note that the competition is still small - 8 entries per category last year, some sweet prizes available! (Top 4 Senior Composition applicants from last year have graduated!)
Thanks To sponsors, Annie Moses Band, Kiwanis, US Music Corps, Performers Music, and Sheet Music Plus.
Register first (thru Dec. 15), then submit by Feb. 1, 2016.
For guidelines, registration and prizes, see www.ViolettesbyBecky.com, Gifts for Musicians.
PS - A benefit, even if you don't win is feedback from professionals and certificate.
PSS. I am in the process of collecting volunteer judges. 2 judges per category vote for placements, then divide entries between 2 for encouraging practical feedback. I post a Violettes blog on each judge for applicants to see, which I can also post here on Violinist.com. If you have any interest, contact me at RMChaffee@Comcast.net. I send you entries on Feb. 15, 2016, and you vote and comment by April 10. (For last year, one of the judges got so busy, he was 3 months late with reviews, so it is not something to stress over - just some fun.) We have had (and still have) some distinguished judges such as Music Director and conductor of the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra.
