Rushworth Composition Prize

Applications for the 2024 Rushworth composition prize winner will open on Tuesday 28 May 2024.

The Rushworth Composition Prize, in association with the Rushworth Foundation, provides an exceptional range of opportunities for an early-career composer who writes original music.

The Prize offers composers aged 18+, with no upper age limit, the opportunity to build a long-term collaborative and creative relationship with Liverpool Philharmonic, which supports composers during the commission period and beyond.

 

What will the winner receive?

£1,000 will be awarded to the winner to write a new work for Ensemble 10:10 (Liverpool Philharmonic’s contemporary music ensemble).

In addition, the winner will take part in a programme of workshops, masterclasses and mentoring sessions from composers, musicians, conductors and other industry professionals associated with Liverpool Philharmonic.

The composer will also receive one year’s complimentary membership of  The Ivors Academy  the UK’s leading professional association for music creators including thousands of songwriters and composers across all styles and genres. 

After winning the prize, previous winners have had further opportunities to produce additional new works and commissions for Liverpool Philharmonic ensembles.
