American Composers Forum Emerging Composer Award

Nominations invited for the Minnesota Emerging Composer Award (MECA)

Deadline: Monday, August 21 at 4:30pm CDT

As a complement to our long-running Jerome Fund for New Music, ACF is seeking to expand their reach by identifying and supporting artists who typically operate outside their known circles. Through a $3000 project grant, MECA supports individuals working in a variety of non-commercial genres, including electronic, improvised, jazz, experimental, traditional, and world musics. The nomination process is simple: use the links on the program page to point them to a variety of work samples and background information on the artist, along with your endorsement. They will take it from there.
