Welcome to the
INDIE FILM MUSIC CONTEST
A COMPETITION, FOCUSING ON MUSICAL STORYTELLING WHILE IGNORING SOUND QUALITY TO GIVE BEGINNERS A FAIR CHANCE TO COMPETE.
Inspiring You to Compose
This international filmscoring contest is for composers of all ages all around the world and to give young composers an even better chance, we split the contest into two age groups.
We know that most beginner composers don’t have great sample libraries or know how to orchestrate well and are therefore discouraged by most competitions to participate. However, we think there is nothing better than a competition to motivate aspiring composers to create.
What makes this Contest Special
We won’t judge by criteria like mixing and mastering or the quality of the sound. If you only have a piano and your phone to record it, you stand the same chances as someone with thousand dollars worth of orchestra libraries and experience in orchestrating.
We focus only on the creative ideas you use to tell the story of this film with your music.

PRIZES to be announced
We are proud to announce that our judges evaluate every single one of your submissions compared to other film scoring competitions where the initial evaluation is done by a different panel. They also won’t be able to know who’s submission they’re evaluating to make any conscious or unconscious discrimination impossible.
If you want to, the judges will give you personal, individual feedback.
When writing the individual feedback the judges will put in much more time than just judging your submission. Therefore, and since these are highly skilled professionals that deserve to be compensated accordingly, it involves an additional fee and you’ll receive feedback from only one of the judges but it will be thorough and look something like this.
Registration is closed for the Winter 2022 Contest!
It will open again around April for the Summer 2023 Contest.
