1. A notated copy of the composition must be provided to the adjudicator at least 48 hours prior to performance.

3. Scores must be clear and legible, and marked with bar numbers.
4. Timings of compositions must be submitted with the score.
STRUCTURE & PERFORMANCE:
5. The adjudicator will take the age/grade of the class into account and will examine the score for use of a discernible structure (e.g. binary or ternary form) in whatever genre the composition is written, as well as elements that create continuity and cohesion (e.g. repetition and contrast; unity and variety; use of dynamisc).
6. "Theme and variation" compositions are permitted - original themes are encouraged.
7. Tonally-based works will be judged on use of melody and harmony (e.g., is the melody sing-able/conjunct? Does the harmonic structure/chord progression remain static or does it develop and evolve?)
8. Originality and experimentation are encouraged.
9. Our festival encourages live performance - computer-generated or pre-recorded performances are discouraged.
10. All composition classes will be NON-COMPETITIVE - critique only, but they are still included in Festival Monetary Award considerations. One adjudicator will evaluate ALL of the classes.
