A competition to develop creativity in young people.

Imagine hearing your music played by the Australian Youth Orchestra, Queensland Youth Chamber Orchestra or the Sydney Youth Orchestra and broadcast at venues around Australia! If you are a budding composer or musician, then the Fanfare Competition is an exciting opportunity for you.

The competition is looking for compositions that have ‘something to say’ and draw attention. You don’t need to have a strong musical background – your work just needs to draw attention for the intended use of cueing audiences to take their seats at performance venues.

Entries open in February 2021 with a submission deadline of Monday 31 May 2021, 5pm.

Fanfare is a project by Artology. For more information visit
