The Jean Bogan Prize for Piano Composition 2014

07 August 2014

Submissions are invited to the Jean Bogan Prize for Piano Composition ($8000) and the Jean Bogan Youth Prize ($1500)

The Newcastle Conservatorium of Music

Do you have an original solo piano composition worthy of a concert performance at the Conservatorium? Or are you ready to unleash your creative talent into an award-winning musical score to be performed at a premier Newcastle concert venue?

Established in 1989 through the generosity of Mr. Laurie Bogan as a memorial to his wife, the Jean Bogan Prize is the only one of its kind in Australia. Since its inception, the prize has produced fine piano compositions, including a number by leading Australian composers such as Elena Kats-Chernin, Andrew Ford, Nigel Westlake and Brenton Broadstock.

The Jean Bogan Prize for Piano Composition offers two exciting categories – The $8,000 Jean Bogan Prize and the $1,500 Jean Bogan Youth Prize. Compositions for both streams can be in any particular style and the musical scores should be 10 to 20 minutes in length.
