The spnm Shortlist 2008: Call for applications
Deadline: Friday 25 January 2008

This is your chance as an emerging composer or sonic artist to set 
yourself on the path towards a professional career, build your profile 
and work with world-class musicians and artists.

The spnm Shortlist is a group of the UK’s most exciting composers and 
sonic artists. To apply, you submit one work, which can be in any style 
and for any forces and media. If you’re one of up to 30 composers 
shortlisted, spnm will offer you performance, professional development 
and promotion opportunities for three years.

Anyone born or resident in the UK and Republic of Ireland can apply.

For full details and a downloadable application pack, see 

What opportunities will I be offered if I’m selected for the Shortlist?
There will be opportunities to write new works for live performance 
events and for installations will offer you the chance to create new 
works for performance events, for installations

How do I apply?
To find out much more about the Shortlist, read full details about how 
to apply and download an application form, visit www.spnm.org.uk. 
Alternatively you can call the spnm office on 020 7407 1640 to request 
information by post.

Who can apply?
People of any age, born or resident for 2008-2010 in the UK or the 
Republic of Ireland. The only other stipulation is that you must be 
willing to take part in projects to create new work if you are selected 
for the Shortlist.

How is the music judged?
The music is listened to and read by a panel of experienced composers, 
sonic artists, performers and programmers. We are interested in your 
music, not your CV, so submissions are assessed anonymously.

What kind of music is spnm looking for?
We ask the panel of judges simply to select what they feel is the most 
exciting new work. We’re not looking for a particular style or form. 
Works can be acoustic or electroacoustic, installations or pieces for 
live performance. They can be for diffusion, for solo instruments, 
chamber forces, orchestra, non-western instruments, for music theatre 
group, etc.

For more information, call Shoël Stadlen on 020 7407 1640 or email 
shoel at spnm.org.uk.
