Vienna Symphonic Library has announced the International Film Scoring Competition 2014, the first joint international film music competition in collaboration with Hollywood Music Workshop.
Participants are to submit a suite that is composed and orchestrated primarily for symphonic instruments, and played or programmed using Vienna Symphonic Library products.
Participants are invited to compose a suite, inspired by certain scenes from the movies “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” or “The Wolfman”. A jury of renowned Hollywood composers including Christopher Young, as well as industry pros such as Dennis Sands (Film Music Recording/Mixing/Re-Recording Mixer & Producer, four-time Oscar nominee), Paul Broucek (President, Music, Warner Bros. Pictures), Dimitrie Leivici (Hollywood Music Workshop) and Herb Tucmandl (Vienna Symphonic Library) will determine the best scores.
Awards include a $10,000 cash prize for the winner, plus additional prizes in the form of Vienna Symphonic Library products worth $4,000, as well as a scholarship for a future Hollywood Music Workshop.
The ten best submissions in addition to the top three entries will be presented at the HMW and VSL websites on October 15, 2014 and will be announced by cooperating media partners.
Registration closes on July 15th, and the last day to submit your mp3 file of the suite and project file is August 15th, 2014.
