Join us for an evening celebrating the very best in new compositions, and help shape the landscape of future music.

The Philip Bates Trust and Royal Birmingham Conservatoire jointly run the annual Philip Bates Prize for Composers and Songwriters, an exceptionally broad competition which has recognised talent in a variety of genres.

It encourages entries in everything from classical, jazz and folk, to singer-songwriter ballads, Asian music and rock, as long as the work is suitable for live performance and appealing to a wide range of concertgoers.
