Mivos/Kanter String Quartet Composition Prize 2018

Mivos Quartet is pleased to announce the eighth annual Mivos/Kanter String Quartet Composition Prize. The competition is designed to promote works of talented emerging composers currently residing in the United States. Its winner will receive a $300 cash prize, a $100 travel stipend (if applicable), and a performance of the submitted piece in New York during Mivos Quartet’s 2018-19 season. The Mivos/Kanter Prize is made possible through the generous support of Carl Kanter.

Application Guidelines

Eligibility: Eligible composers are those currently residing in the United States who are in the early to middle stages of developing an international career and for whom this prize would represent a significant career opportunity.

Application Fee: $10. Payment accepted online via PayPal. Please send to mivosquartet@gmail.com and include applicant's name in the subject line.

How to apply: Applications will only be accepted via email to mivoskanterprize@gmail.com.

Composers must include the following materials as email attachments:

• Cover letter (PDF or MS Word format) that includes applicant's name, address, phone number, and email, plus the title, duration, and year of the composition entered.
• Artistic resumé or CV
• Full score (PDF format only, do not include parts): composer's name should not be on the score, as scores will be reviewed anonymously.

It is strongly encouraged that composers also include these additional materials in their application:

        • Audio recording of the piece (MP3  preferable, though MIDI rendering is acceptable)
        • Program notes

Compositions must be scored for two violins, viola, and cello, and may include electronics, amplification, and/or multimedia. Works may not exceed 30 minutes in length.
