For participants under 30 years of age
International competition for acousmatic composition

The Acousmatic Project (ACP) announces its Young Lion*ess of Acousmatic Music competition 2022 to composers under the age of 30, of any nationality and gender. We ask for works on a medium composed in a studio, projected on loudspeakers in concert, without the intervention of other live sound sources.

In an initial step the jury will select 16 compositions, which will then be performed in four streaming concerts in June. Of these, four winners will be selected by the jury and an audience prize will be awarded by online voting. The prize money is EUR 1000 each and the chosen works will be performed at the Echoes Around Me festival with the Vienna Acusmonium in October 2022. 
A maximum of 100 works can take part in the competition.


The acceptance of works ends at 100 entries – at the latest on 15 March 2022.
The number of works already submitted will be announced daily online.
The evaluation will be anonymous.
The age limit is 30 years (proof by passport copy).
Five winners will be selected – four by the jury and one by the public.


Each participant may enter only one work.
The work must not yet have been published, must not have won a prize and must not be accessible online for the duration of the judging.
The duration of the work must not exceed 12 minutes.
