For the first time, the 15th World Soundtrack Awards is opening their composition contest to young composers across the world. The WSAs will present the SABAM Award for Best Young International Composer to one of three selected finalists. The three finalists will be invited for a three-day visit in Ghent where they will have their compositions performed by the Brussels Philharmonic and conducted by maestro Dirk Brossé during the 15th World Soundtrack Award’s official closing ceremony of the 42nd Film Fest Gent on Oct. 24. This is open to composers under 36.
The registration deadline is July 10, and the composition submission deadline is Aug. 10.
