MediaSoundHamburg Young Talent Award 2021

Young musicians, composers, game musicians and sound designers up to 35 years of age are invited to this year’s MediaSoundHamburg jubilee to write a birthday piece.

The composition in celebration of MediaSoundHamburg’s anniversary will be premiered by the renowned Kaiser Quartet. Everything is allowed to musically implement and interpret the festive theme, with beats or without, with effects, with yourself as DJ, implemented as a classical piece or live sampling. The length of the piece should not be longer than 5 minutes.

How to enter

All material, including audio files, a score for string quartet, and a short written explanation of the composition process must be submitted by 1 June 2021.

An expert jury, consisting of Dutch composer Danny Weijermans and author Stephan Eicke, among others, will decide on the winners.

The first three prize-winning compositions will be performed live by the Kaiser Quartet at this year’s MediaSoundHamburg.

The winner of the first prize will receive an invitation to MediaSoundHamburg including free accommodation and board.
