For composers born after 10 September 1987
You can now register for the Gaudeamus Award 2023. Composers/creators of any nationality or background who were born after 10 September 1987 may enter their works. Works may already have been performed but must be composed no more than 4 years ago.

A maximum of five composers will be nominated for the Award. The nominees will be part of the Gaudeamus Festival 2023 (6-10 September). On the final night of the festival the winner of the Award will be chosen by an independent jury. The prize consists of a commission worth €5,000 for a new composition to be premiered at a future edition of the Gaudeamus Festival. The nominees’ main entries for the competition as well as additional submitted pieces will be performed during the festival. They will also be commissioned to develop a new piece especially for the festival.
