Selected from 140 international applicants, each winner will receive US $7,000, intensive mentoring - and a New York City performance at the National Sawdust Theatre in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

“I am deeply moved by the volume of responses to the Hildegard Competition … the future of composition is bright and the need for opportunity, vast,” Jury Chair Paola Prestini has said.
