Each year, the World Soundtrack Academy organises a composition contest for young international film composers with the support of Sabam, the Belgian Society of Authors, Composers and Publishers.
This year, candidates are asked to compose music for a scene of ‘J’ai perdu mon corps’ (I Lost My Body), an animated film by Jérémy Clapin that was selected for the International Competition last year at Film Fest Gent 2019. Deadline for entries: 31.05.2020.
The jury will choose three finalists, whose compositions will be performed live in world premiere by the Brussels Philharmonic conducted by Dirk Brossé during the World Soundtrack Awards Concert in Capitole Ghent, Belgium on 24 October 2020. The finalists will also be invited to attend the film music events at Film Fest Ghent, such as the WSA networking dinner, the film music industry days and the WSA press conference and meet & greet. The winner will be honoured with the Sabam Award for the Most Original
Composition by a Young International Composer, worth € 2.500.
