Comus Prize in Composition

The Comus Prize is open to members of the University in statu pupillari. It will be awarded for an original, unperformed, dramatic (but not necessarily staged) composition for chamber ensemble and voices, of no more than ten instruments and five voices and not shorter than five minutes but no more than twenty minutes in length.

The Prize will be a single award of £500, though a shared Prize may be awarded in the event of two equally appropriate candidates. In addition, up to £250 will be made available to support a performance of the winning work. The Prize will not be awarded twice to the same person. The judges reserve the right to make no award, and, if they wish, to make honourable mention of another entry or entries of outstanding merit.

Entries should be in conventional staff notation, loose leaf, and must not bear the composer's name. Four copies should be sent, with a covering note of the author's name, College, and home address to the Senior Tutor, Churchill College, Cambridge, CB3 0DS. They should arrive by the end of the Lent Full Term, 2004. The award of the Prize will be announced by the end of Easter Full Term, 2004.
