Complete listings of finalists and semi-finalists in The American Prize competitions may be found elsewhere on this blog. Please use the chronological tool in the right-hand column to find specific results.
QUICKNOTES: Although The American Prize does not usually provide written evaluations to semi-finalists, some semi-finalist composers will receive in their certificate packets short comments, suggestions or overall impressions made during the judging. We hope they will prove valuable. All finalists receive written evaluations from a member of The American Prize judging panel.
REMINDER: The final postmark deadline for composers to apply for The American Prize, 2018-19, is APRIL 30, 2018. There is no need to email in advance to take advantage of the April date. Please note that although the deadline date on application forms will not be changed, be assured your application will be accepted through the final deadline.
