2019 Paul Lowin Prizes - applications are open
The 2019 Paul Lowin Prizes are now open for applications. Nominations for the Paul Lowin Orchestral Prize ($25,000) and the Paul Lowin Song Cycle Prize ($15,000) are accepted from anyone, including composers, publishers and the general public. Entries should be lodged online by 5pm AEST on Sunday 30 June 2019.
Among the most significant composition prizes in Australia, the Paul Lowin Prizes were held for the first time in 1991. Since 1999 the Prizes have been presented every 2-3 years in collaboration between the Australian Music Centre (AMC) and Perpetual, as Trustee of the Paul Lowin Prizes.
Compositions must have been completed not earlier than the closing date for entries in the previous competition (30 June 2016). To preserve anonymity in the judging process, any proper names in the title or other materials which may identify the composer or librettist (where applicable) should be deleted.
Applications for the 2019 Paul Lowin Prizes are submitted online. If you have questions about the application process, please send us email.
