impuls . International Composition Competition

impuls promotes and supports young composers not only within its Academy, but also through the impuls Composition Competition.
impuls commissions up to 6 new works for ensemble every second year from young composers selected by a jury. Subsequently these composers are invited to take part in the impuls Composition Workshop in Vienna and Graz – where their new works are collectively rehearsed and discussed extensively with musicians of world-class ensembles such as Klangforum Wien – as well as to the premiere of their new pieces within the impuls Academy and Festival in Graz. impuls also intends to support the composers´ works beyond that through recordings respectively broadcasting and additional concerts.  


For information on composers selected from our last call back in 2014 please have a look at Composers for 2017. For information on former composers selected for this program, please have a look at Archives.


The latest call ran from May 31st to October 31st, 2016 (conditions /application). The decision of the jury will be published in spring 2017.
