Performers are invited to submit their performance of a classical-jazz fusion composition in the form of an audio CD and DVD, a score (PDF), a brief description of the work and a photo of the performer(s).
The composition should reflect elements of both jazz and classical styles, which can include world music and 3rd stream compositional styles, and should be up to ten minutes in duration.
The prize is awarded on the quality of the performance but the work can be the performer’s original composition. The judges decision about the winners will be final. The award is open to tertiary music students nationally who have been a resident in Australia for a minimum of two years. Applicants can be solo performers or ensembles (up to a maximum of 5). The winner and runner-up are responsible for their own travel and accommodation.
