A supporting recording (CD only) is helpful but not required.  MIDI realizations are acceptable. 

Number of entries: Composers may submit as many entries as they like following these guidelines for each composition.

Returning materials: If you would like your score and recording returned, please enclose a self-addressed envelope with correct US postage.


All compositions will be judged by a committee comprised of Verismo Trio, the president of Wyoming Music Teacher’s Association, and one outside musician in a reading session with Verismo Trio.

Thanks to this generous donation from Wyoming Music Teacher’s Association, there is no registration fee. 


You may not submit a work that has already been professionally recorded for commercial release.

Deadline for receipt of entries: postmarked by February 1, 2013.
