Your Music Recorded by this
84-pc Orchestra


Submit your original orchestral music for adjudication by the Film Scoring Academy of Europe and the European Recording Orchestra (ERO). The two (2) winners will have their music recorded by the European Recording Orchestra's 84-piece symphony orchestra at Bulgarian National Radio Studio 1 on May 7, 2023.

Composers may submit as many original compositions as desired following the application process below. Submitting more than one piece gives the faculty a greater opportunity to adjudicate the composer's creative voice, and to assess his/her compositional abilities across a variety of styles, moods, or genres.  A €20 Application Fee will be applicable for each submission.

There are no restrictions on instrumentation, style, age, ethnicity, or experience. Submit your best work and let the faculty adjudicate your creative voice as a composer.  Composers must submit a PDF and mp3 of their score via the form below. mp3's can be notation software audio renderings, MIDI mockups, or live recorded.

The two winners can choose to record:

1. A pre-existing original composition

2. A newly composed work for this session

3. Any work synced to any visual media via click

Submission deadline: March 31, 2023
