2020 WINNERS ANNOUNCED!

Congratulations to everyone who entered the Fanfare Competition. The judges were super impressed by the standard of compositions submitted and had a challenging time consolidating on the final eight for this year’s Fanfare Competition.

If you are not one of the eight selected for the Fanfare Competition you are not out of the running yet! Your work could be selected for Open Fanfare in Queensland!

Due to our current situation we are delaying the announcement for the selected 12 works for the Open Fanfare program in Queensland with the Queensland Youth Orchestras and the Queensland Performing Arts Centre. The program is scheduled for 28, 29 and 30 September. We hope to announce the selected 12 works at the end of July. Stay tuned to find out more!

In no particular order the following eight composers are selected to participate in the Fanfare Competition and will have their work recorded by the Australian Youth Orchestra:
