Pulitzer committee to accept recorded premieres, downloadable music files

Posted on: December 13, 2010

The Pulitzer Prize Board has announced that it is now accepting nominations of American compositions for the Prize for Music. Entries must have had their U.S. premiere between January 1 and December 31, 2010 and may include symphonies and operas as well as choral works, music theater, movie scores, jazz, and other non-classical compositions. Among the rule changes for this year: public release of a recording in the U.S. is accepted as the equivalent of a live premiere; submission of a score is recommended but not required; and public release of a recording in the U.S. can include a music file downloaded from a website. Entries must be postmarked by the December 31, 2010 deadline. More information and entry forms can be found at the Pulitzer website http://www.pulitzer.org.
