Inspire scheme

The BBC Proms Inspire scheme encourages young composers to develop their musical creativity, working with like-minded young people and alongside professional musicians. You can join the scheme by signing up to the Inspire Scheme newsletter.

Inspire competition

Would you like to hear your music performed by professional musicians at the BBC Proms? And broadcast on Radio 3? Winners of the Inspire Competition will also receive a BBC commission and mentoring by a professional composer.

“BBC Inspire is a brilliant scheme which invites young composers of all ages and abilities to get involved, no matter what genre or genres you write in. There are great workshop days with professional musicians at the top of their game, as well as the BBC Proms Inspire Competition. In my two years' judging the competition, I've been hugely impressed by the range and excellent standard of the entries.”

Kerry Andrew, Inspire Competition judge 2018

Your music must be original and unique. There are no restrictions on the type of music you can enter.

The closing date for competition entries is 5pm on Thursday 24 May 2018.
