The Comus Prize is open to those in statu pupillari in the University of Cambridge. It will be awarded for an original, unperformed, dramatic composition for chamber ensemble and voices of no more than ten instruments and five voices and 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 if no entries are of adequate quality; it will not be awarded twice to the same person.
