ACU Choral Composition Competition

Dear Melbourne Composers League,

The Australian Catholic University has a choral composition competition running again in 2016.

The link is: We would like to encourage you to add this to any list or website that you feel is appropriate.


Two of the divisions in the competition are open to all. The one of most interest is –

Open Division (any Australian citizen); prize money $4,000 (choral work of 6-10 minutes)

There’s also a liturgical division (work must be able to function in a Catholic Liturgical context) with prize money of $2,000

All judging is double blind, with works de-identified. The deadline for submission is 5pm EST, Friday July 1, 2016.

I would very much appreciate it if you could distribute this through your networks.

Kind regards,

Professor Timothy McKenry
Deputy Head | National School of Arts
