Dear SCI colleagues,

I encourage you to apply for the new SCI Jazz Composition Award here: http://www.newmusicengine.org/categories/SCI-Jazz-Composition-Award/index.html. We have been in discussions to reach out to more jazz-centric composers. This award is one way we are working to reach out to our colleagues on the jazz side of the spectrum. Please share widely with your jazz colleagues who may not be members of SCI, as well as any students who are writing in a jazz genre. This specific contest is for compositions for standard jazz big band.

Any questions, please let me know here: scijazzcontest at gmail.com<mailto:scijazzcontest at gmail.com>

Full details below. Receipt deadline is July 15, 2018.
