Score IT! Competition
Entries for Score IT! 2019 will open in January
Score IT! is a statewide film-scoring competition open to all secondary school students in Queensland. The competition challenges young composers to create an original composition to accompany a short film produced by Griffith Film School. Score IT! categories are as follows:
Score IT! Junior (Years 7-10)
Score IT! Senior (Years 11-12)
Score IT! Plus (Years 7-12)
Based on year level, students compete in either Score IT! Junior or Senior by composing and recording a soundtrack using instruments of their choice. The more challenging Score IT! Plus is open to all secondary students, requiring composition for specific instruments and submission of a written score.
Entrants are judged by an expert panel including Katie Noonan, and award-winning screen composer and orchestrator, Cameron Patrick, known for orchestrating films such as Spider-Man: Homecoming for Marvel, Star Trek Into Darkness for Paramount; and Jurassic World for Universal; as well as industry leaders from Griffith Film School, Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University and Queensland School of Film and TV.
Score IT! finalists will be invited in July 2019, to take part in a number of composition workshops and masterclasses led by senior lecturers and practitioners from the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, and also take part in a half day workshop with top video and digital school, Queensland School of Film and TV and, at the concluding awards ceremony, the winning Score IT! Plus composition will be performed by students from Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University. Prizes will also be awarded to all finalists.
For regional finalists, travel and accommodation costs will be covered by Queensland Music Festival to bring the selected student and a guardian to Brisbane for the July Score IT! activities.
