The University of Louisville School of Music is inviting nominations for the University of Louisville Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition 2007. The award is one of a series of awards established at the university in 1984 with an endowment from the Grawemeyer Foundation. Other Grawemeyer Awards are made in the categories of Education, Improving World Order, Psychology, and Religion.

The university offers the music composition prize in recognition of outstanding achievement by a living composer in a large musical genre: choral, orchestral, chamber, electronic, song-cycle, dance, opera, musical theater, extended solo work, etc. The award will be granted for a work premiered during the five-year period between January 1, 2001, and December 31, 2005. The amount of the award will be $200,000.

The Grawemeyer Music Award Committee invites the submission of scores by outstanding composers throughout the world. Each entry for the award must be sponsored by a professional musical organization or individual (performer or performing group, conductor, critic, publisher, or head of a professional music school or department). A composer may not submit his or her own work. In addition, no more than one work of any composer may be submitted. Entries from previous winners of the award will not be considered.

The program requires a non-refundable handling fee of $40. Visit the Grawemeyer Awards Web site for complete nomination guidelines.
