ENTRIES FOR THE 2024 YOUNG CREATIVE AWARDS ARE NOW OPEN. 

Please read the entry criteria for the Music Award below before submitting your entry.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

To enter the Music category, you can submit a song or a musical composition OF NO MORE THAN 5 MINUTES.
There is no theme, so judges will make their decisions based on the quality of your composition and the creative ideas within your music (rather than the professionalism of the recording), and how well your accompanying documentation supports it.

Explicit, gratuitous work, or work containing profanity will not be considered.

We would like all entrants to accompany their music with the following:

• A lyric sheet (if relevant) – this is essential if your piece includes any singing/words.

• A description of the piece, including what inspired you.

• How the use of instruments, arrangement, any effects or musical ideas supports your entry.

We ask that all music submitted is original, so if you are using any samples or ideas taken from elsewhere please include the source, why you chose to use it and how it enhances your music.
