The Rushworth Composition Prize, supported by the Rushworth Foundation, provides a unique opportunity for a young artist/composer who writes original music to develop their talent and access a wide range of support and guidance from across the music profession.
£1,000 is awarded to the winner of the competition. The prize-winning composer will write a new work for Ensemble 10/10 (Liverpool Philharmonic’s contemporary music ensemble) and take part in a bespoke programme of workshops, masterclasses and mentoring sessions from composers, performers, conductors and other industry professionals associated with Liverpool Philharmonic. The composer will also receive one year’s complimentary membership of the Ivors Academy (www.ivorsacademy.com), the UK’s leading professional association for music creators including thousands of songwriters and composers across all styles and genres.
Applications for the prize will open in May, 2021. To receive more information when applications open, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
