We are delighted to announce details of the fourth British Composer Awards Student Competition.
To apply, students must submit an original work for solo viola of 4 to 5 minutes duration. The winning work will be performed by celebrated British violist Sarah-Jane Bradley at the British Composer Awards ceremony in London on 3 December 2013 and will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on Sunday 8 December 2013.
Attendees at the ceremony typically include promoters, publishers and performers of new music, so the competition is a valuable opportunity for student composers to have their music heard by important members of the contemporary music community, and by the wider public in the form of the BBC Radio 3 audience.

Culturing Our Creativity is about the environment we create that will allow arts and culture in Scotland to flourish
An AmbITion Scotland seminar, webcast and open-space one-day event in partnership with Missions Models Money, Arts & Business Scotland and the Cultural Enterprise Office exploring the current context for culture and how we might change it.
Date: Monday 17 June 2013
Location: [venue TBC], Edinburgh
Seminar : 10.30 – 12:30
Webcast: 10:55 – 12:30
Open space: 13.15 – 15.30
Cost: £20 + VAT*
Ben Cameron from the Doris Duke Charitable Trust, a thought leader on culture and the arts in the United States will be the key note speaker for the day along with contributions from:
David Watt, new CEO of Arts & Business Scotland
Eleonore Belfiore, leader of the #culturalvalue initiative
Shelagh Wright, Missions Models Money
Bob Last, Cultural Enterprise Office
Hannah Rudman, Rudman Consulting and AmbITIon Scotland
Chaired by Roanne Dods and featuring storyteller Donald Smith from the Scottish Storytelling Centre to energise the open-space session, the day promises to be enlightening and engaging.
Culturing our Creativity is driven by three key questions: What conditions are needed for individuals and organisations working in arts, culture and the creative industries in Scotland to flourish on our finite planet? How can we ensure their presence? What more could they contribute to our common wealth if we did?
Individuals and organisations working in arts, culture and the creative industries in Scotland are faced with a rapidly changing external operating environment that is increasingly uncertain. Many, especially those working in small practices, micro businesses and SMEs, face continuous obstacles to achieving their full potential, especially in relation to accessing the right kind of human and financial resources to help them adapt and build their resilience.
Whilst we know a lot about the conditions needed to enable cultural and creative activities to flourish at different points in their lifecycle, they’re not present across the whole ecosystem. They’re not connected up. Most importantly, we don’t fully recognise the different kinds value they create, and what impacts these values have on our increasingly challenged economy, society and environment.
