BMI Foundation
BMI Revises Guidelines for its Annual Composer Awards

To reflect BMI's focus on the composer, no matter where they are from, the program's new name is The BMI Composer Awards. To allow broad access, distribute resources more equitably, and create more inclusive programs, applicants are no longer required to be studying music formally. Works must still be largely notated (except for electronic elements) and through-composed; and compositions will still be judged based on the score; recordings of works are only acceptable for submissions that have non-notatable elements such as electronics.
