To find Wyoming artists and expose new work, ARTCORE hosts competitions in playwriting, visual arts and music on a rotating three-year cycle. This year, Wyoming composers have the chance to submit their manuscripts to the New Music Competition for the chance to win $300 and have accomplished Wyoming musicians perform their work.
To enter, follow these rules: Compositions can be for any combination of voice and/or instrument but must be limited to no more than eight performers. The work must not have been performed before, and compositions should be submitted on music manuscript paper in black ink. Performance time is limited to 20 minutes.
Submit three copies of your manuscript -- postmarked by March 15 -- to ARTCORE, P.O. Box 874, Casper, WY 82602. The entry fee is $15 per entry, with checks payable to ARTCORE, and a single composer may submit multiple entries. Manuscripts will not be returned unless you submit a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
A winner will be announced May 30, and performance of the winning work will be arranged for the 2011-2012 season.
