BBC Proms InspireArea: UK
Deadline: Thursday 25 May 2017

The BBC Proms Inspire scheme has offered 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.

In 2017 the scheme continues, offering composers of the future new opportunities and year-round events to encourage and support their development.

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 for the 2017 Inspire Competition winners opens today (Monday 9 January) and runs for four months. The closing date for entries is Thursday 25 May.
