The BBC has launched a new scheme offering a platform for over 900 young composers aged 12 - 18 year olds from across the UK to develop their skills, share their ideas and get their music heard.

At the heart of the scheme, the BBC Proms Inspire Competition for young composers offers its winners the unrivalled opportunity to have their composition performed by professional musicians at the BBC Proms, the world’s largest classical music festival, and broadcast on BBC Radio 3, as well as a coveted BBC commission.

The search is now on for the 2017 Inspire Competition winners and runs for four months. The closing date for entries is Thursday 25th May.

The judging panel for the 2017 Inspire Competition is made up of renowned composers including Mark-Anthony Turnage, Kerry Andrew, Charlotte Bray, Hannah Kendall and Fraser Trainer as well as Director of the BBC Proms, David Pickard.
